#MeTooEarth| Organic interior with limited budget| The Rustic Home, Pune | Silhouette Architects & Designers | World Environment Day, 5 June, 2021 | SR Eco project

Designed with sustainable materials in a defined budget, The Rustic Home shows that creativity and design is not dependant on money. Beautiful yet sustainable designs with limited means can be created if there is a will. A showcase by SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

The design of this home integrates Sustainable and Organic materials with the potentials of nature around as a response to the client’s love for nature and nature’s materials and also as a response to the defined budget for the project.

Organic Interior Designing

Minimalistic design

The Design is Minimal. It weaves the elements of water, sunlight, shadows & plants with simple unconventional materials to create luxury. It encourages the users to feel the seasons, welcome the birds enjoy the rains & watch the moon.
