Hermitage Retreat Recreational Home

The Hermitage Retreat is a compact composition of intricately detailed spatial experiences, a contemporary interpretation of vernacular domain. It was clients' conscious step to cut off from the urban clutter to experience absolute solitude and revive their ancestral identity. Architect’s response to the brief was an unimposing structure, tailor-made for the beautiful serene site on a hillock with panoramic views.The composite structural system reflects the sincerity of each material used, keeping the natural ecosystem of the site intact.
