CollectiveProject has renovated the Debris Block House in Bangalore, India.
The Debris Block House is a private residence in Bangalore, India, close to the city's centre.
Using debris material from an older existing building on-site, mud-concrete blocks were created and utilised in the construction of this project.
The ground floor is cast-in-situ exposed concrete with an open floor plan, and on the upper levels, the blocks used for the wall construction were left exposed. At the centre of the home, a sculptural staircase is washed with light from above with strategically placed skylights at multiple levels.
In addition, large planters at every level obscure the building from passers-by as the building blends into the surrounding foliage.
