Kamala House

 Back to Projects list
Ahmedabad, India

nformed by both Western and Eastern designs, Kamala House was named after Doshi’s wife, and is the architect’s personal residence. Doshi relies on a sustainable and economical approach. Natural light is maximized and streams throughout, while cavity walls trap and minimize heat.

Top: Unlike traditional Indian homes at the time, the garden was placed in the rear of the house rather than in the front, to intentionally offer privacy.
Bottom: Basement in early morning light.
