Kiranpani / Mette Lange Architects

In the old Portuguese colony Goa, India, architect Mette Lange has designed a house for her family, after spending almost 10 years traveling and studying the local architecture in Goa. It includes traditions for atrium courtyards and large loggias covered by big beautiful low tiled roofs which give shade for the sun and shelter for the heavy rains. The local houses are often built with bricks, made out of the local red laterite stone - the same color as the red soil of Goa. Lange has in Kiranpani worked with the traditions, but simplified it and put it together differently.
