Sift filter molds allow people in developing countries to use local resources to create their own water filtration systems. The filters themselves are vessels created from a mix of sawdust and clay; a combination that creates a semi-porous solid wall filter when fired. The molds for these vessels would be sent to potters and artisans in villages in developing areas, allowing them to create their own filters and sell them amongst their wares.
Sustainability is the unique feature of this project. The farmhouse has an effortlessness in its design. The state of art techniques along with locally available materials has enhanced the entire appearance of the region. Designing this part has given a breather to vernacular architecture. This has resulted in creating a welcoming and homely atmosphere. The simplicity of forms and structures has been derived from the regional architectural style. In this project Indian design is used which amalgamates in with the serene landscape.
Located inside Devon House and spanning 4,000 sq ft, the project comprises of three main areas: an entry lobby at Devon House which merges into secondly, an experiential corridor and finally the main open display courtyard with recycling facilities. The design uses a limited palette of materials, such as recycled timber veneer, recycled material terrazzo flooring, each of which was carefully selected to tell a story and provide a continuous theme for the visitors.
Hospitality design is a highly challenging area where the interiors need to stay fresh and appealing with the future trends in design. Pallet is a micro brewery that was designed with the thought of using sustainable materials in their raw state to achieve contemporary designs. Unconventional use of recycled wooden pallets for the interior decor is the highlight of this restaurant. It portrays the design philosophy of repetition of a module to generate patterns and textures. Although materials used are in raw state it gives international look and attracts clientele across the world.
The Planter is the first at-home salad growing system that waters itself and learns which plants to grow based on your unique outdoor conditions. Never worry about over or under watering again. The Planter also works with a subscription service that delivers compostable seed trays and nutrient-rich soil. And when it's time to harvest, new seed trays automatically show up at your door. Grow enough kale, tomatoes, radishes, lettuce and other greens to eat organic salads every couple of days. Enjoy the freshest, safest, and most delicious salads from your porch to your table.
