Mumbai’s ‘Collage’ House is Made From Recycled Materials


As a project begun in 2015, S+PSARCHITECTS‘s house in Mumbai is made entirely from recycled materials. Built for a four generation family, the modern collaged structure is a perfect mix of contemporary and traditional design, featuring eccentric mismatched windows, and doors made from demolished city houses, that contrast beautifully with the concrete and polished marble flooring.

Hundred year old columns, from a dismantled house, add a sense of ethereal nostalgia, to an already very special structure.
