Through the roads of the old village rises a rammed house. A house, made by
the villagers for the villagers, speaks to the children of Baghere.
From the earth, the walls are pulled. From the trees the roofs are made.
Inhabited voids occur as a result of shifts in the two masses providing hospitality within.
Experiences inside are defined by several configurations of the combination of
light, shadows, and wind. As light invades on the wooden columns outside, it
directs the sight toward the entrances of the house.
To meet a passive ventilation strategy, the house is shifted 45 degrees toward
the prevailing winds. A rectangular plan with small spans of 4 meters facing the
winds would function better and allow much more wind to flow and ventilate.
Providing a half meter void in the roof releases all the hot air from the rooms.
