Recycled windows and doors from old demolished houses, walls made of metal pipe leftovers, flooring constructed from Burma teak rafters, interiors of fabric waste and colonial furniture – this is not just your ordinary house.
‘Collage House’ in Belapur, Navi Mumbai is as quirky and fascinating as its name. It is currently home to four generations of the Bhargav family.
The construction of this home began in 2006 and the architect firm S+PS Architects from Mumbai led the project. The design, according to them, takes inspiration from Mumbai’s “frugality, adaptability, multi-tasking, resourcefulness and ingenuity.”
Here are some pictures of this amazing dwelling:
