Contemporary House India – House on a Stream / Tala Tree House


With photographs by Edmund Sumner, this publication by Thames Hudson features a stunning overview of innovative, ambitious, and beautiful houses in a range of dramatic settings on the Indian subcontinent.

India has a long, diverse history of remarkable architecture. This stunning overview of contemporary residential architecture in India features over twenty houses from across the country, designed by leading firms such as Samira Rathod Design Associates and Architecture BRIO, as well as emerging architects such as Martand Khosla.

Beginning with a helpful essay, Contemporary House India is divided into four thematic chapters. They each open with a contextual introduction. Included with each featured home are detailed drawings and plans, specially commissioned photographs of the interiors and exteriors by leading architectural photographer Edmund Sumner, and accompanying text based on interviews with the architects by author Rob Gregory. Gregory places the selected homes in a global context, including the fascinating legacy of major modern architects such as Le Corbusier’s work in Chandigarh, India.
