Malik Architecture has designed a house in India using sandstone as the primary building material.
Sadly, over the last few decades, the potential of sandstone as a robust and sustainable structural element has not been explored. In India, the economy of the hand-made is still comparable with mechanised methods. The house, which is located in Jaipur, presented the studio with an opportunity to explore and evolve a method of building that has been prevalent in traditional buildings for centuries. We laid out a simple brief: no material other than stone should be used for construction. This made us dive deeply into the art of "making" with stone.
