Characteristics of vernacular architecture are not often seen in urban areas. This can be for a number of reasons, such as the difficulty of making age-old techniques and materials work in a modern setting.

This home, built in Vadodara, is a great example of how vernacular architecture can be used in an urban context. The three-bedroom home with a pool was designed for a family of four and incorporates eco-friendly features like plenty of natural light and good ventilation. The home's design blends in nicely with its natural surroundings.

The layout is divided into two blocks, one containing all the living areas and the other containing bedrooms. Between the two blocks are the leisure components of the pool and a gazebo. This area also connects the Miyawaki Forest in the north and a buffer green wall with tall trees towards the south.
