Vernacular Architecture in India

Recently I visited a place in Konkan region in India.
Kolad , on Mumbai-Goa highway.
It  a lake side resort , it has a vernacular look with modern amenities.
Here are some snaps..
 Sit-out facing lake side..
Exterior face has stone cladding with lacquer finish.
All the door windows are from local wood.
 Floating room , on RCC columns .
The roofing is done in MS Fabrication and thatching is done for the elevational treatment .
It give a structure its vernacular look..and it looks amazing at night with lighting.
 It has clear glass windows from all the four side, which give a feel of openness .
Wooden bridge connects the cottage from the rest resort.


Columns with stone cladding and thatched roof  give site-out a comfortable and cozy feeling.
