The Surat suburb of Vesu is known for many things: its towering residential enclaves, glittering malls, sprawling business parks and quiet, leafy lanes. What it isn’t quite known for is its coastline—or lack thereof. “But when Devang and Richa’s brief called for bold forms and shades of blue, the coastline was the first thing that came to mind,” quip Sagar Rathod, Mansi Rathod and Ritika Uttamchandani, co-founders and principal architects of Surat-based architecture firm Ground Zero who had been approached by Devang and Richa Mehta to construct a tranquil residence far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Clients—a police officer and a doctor—wanted to have a home that took their work stress away, and made them feel comfortable and at peace. They realised the answer lay in the ancient Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi—the idea of celebrating things with their natural imperfections, just as nature intended.


“There is too much architecture between me and the view,” said the late legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa, and we at Amoeba Design kept that in mind while designing this house. In fact, it would not be wrong to say that the entire design process for this house was driven by Bawa’s quote
