Architect Mohammed Haroon and Architect Shahili led Sheily Haroon Architects used natural and raw materials to create this 'Home Around Leaves' in Kerala. The firm transformed an ordinary concrete home into an abode reflecting a fusion of modern tropical design and Kerala's traditional vernacular architecture. The design evolved from the site itself without disturbing the existing habitat, so none of the trees in the site are removed. The firm shared more information about the project with SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Read on:

Elements Of Nature ( Air, Water , Light And Vegetation)
The firm transformed an ordinary concrete block to a new environment by introducing elements of nature, keeping water (a shallow pond) as a core element that cools the air passing inside and provides visual energy.
The design team did not remove any trees from the site. These trees act as a buffer around and keep a cool and calm atmosphere inside and bring a feeling of living around leaves.
