With a stream running through the house, this retreat in Alibag is delicately woven into the landscape, alternately opening up and closing itself to the different characteristics of the site.Though seasonal, the streambed allows for an interesting landscape feature throughout the year. The house is placed on the banks of the stream where it makes a sudden S-curve. A short walk along the stream before entering the house builds up an element of anticipation.
Like an organism trying to make most use of its resources and surroundings, the house with its several limbs reaches out into the landscape making full use of the views within the site and dramatizes special moments: a beautiful tree, a view of the mountains beyond or the cascading stream during the monsoon rains. What started out as a Cartesian response to the site became deformed, stretched and pushed in.
The Phillips Petroleum Building is located in downtown Bartlesville. It stands at 292 ft. with 19 floors, making it the tallest building in the city. It was completed in 1964 by Architectural team Welton Becket and Associates. Its international styled concrete exterior is mesmerizing to see. And nearly impossible to tell, but its base and every floor is a perfect 117 X 117 ft. square. Next time you are in the "OK" state, you absolutely must see this world wonder.
