Landscape development of Manomae at Dabolim, Vasco-da-gama, Goa.
Located at the picturesque location of Dabolim, Goa, the site approx. 827 sq.m., belongs to an Elite Business family grounded to their traditions. The site has a natural gradient of 10 m. with a mesmerizing view of the sea from the rear end of the site. The Architecture is a fusion of traditional and contemporary styles; hence, the landscape created is organic & enhances the existing features on site. The use of vernacular material gives a warm look to the entire site, amalgamating the landscape with the residence yet sufficing the contemporary needs of the family comprising of varied age groups.
The sound of water gives the garden a feeling of tranquility and peacefulness. The pool is designed with an infinity edge, which gives it an illusion of continuity with the sea. The sea-facing rear of the site is designed as an efficient secluded party space with amenities like barbecue cum grill and a sit-out space. The pleasing view of a waterfall along with the radial wooden pergola & the natural settings make the landscape interesting. Vegetation is used to provide relief, shade and color, in an attempt to recreate the lush tropical garden around the house built within Nature itself.
