Kachra Mane
Banglore, India
Built Up Area
1700 sq. Ft

The Kachra Mane is an addition to an existing older house. Das, the owner of the house proudly calls it the Kachra Mane or Scrap house. The new addition sits lightly on the existing bulding and uses reused packaging pine wood to make the structure of the new house. The exterior ‘walls’ are of pinewood and glass which let in the light and air and make the outside come indoors. The roof structure follows this route and is lightweight [no concrete] wooden frame with corrugated bamboo matt board. The glass, much of the pinewood, furniture, lights, toilet fixtures are all salvaged material.
