Deccan-based architect Srinivas Chaudhary has spent the past 10 years designing housing for the homeless, mostly women and children.
He now has a second home for himself and his wife and three dogs.
He works with his brother on the design process and has recently been invited to design homes for the elderly.
He told Al Jazeera: “I am not a house person, but my work is based on a desire to create a home that is completely functional and beautiful, and for people to live happily and without any problems.”
Srinas Chaudhy and his team were initially inspired by the homes of the famous architect John Gorman in Delhi, India.
His designs are typically minimalist and minimalist but also modern in a modern way.
In addition to designing a shelter for the poor, Chaudhs design for this second home included the creation of a solar shower, a water and heating system, a fridge, and a laundry.
Chaudhwali was also inspired by traditional houses and buildings in the north of India.
“We wanted to create something that was not just about the construction but about the design,” he said.
Choudhary said his goal was to create homes that would be affordable for people and for the environment, and would also provide a space for the community to gather.
The Chaudhuas second home is one of the more ambitious ones.
It has an air conditioning system and air conditioning is the primary component of the house, Choudhy said.
The air conditioner is connected to the electricity grid and the home is powered by solar panels.
Chauxharies team has spent more than three years designing the house and building it from scratch.
He said that his first design was to build a small house with an open design that was simple, but he wanted it to be more.
“The house has a number of doors, one for the outside and one for people.
The outside door is for a bathroom and there is also a shower for people who are staying there,” he told Aljazeera.
“I wanted it be something that is not just for the rich people and the people who have money, but for the ordinary people.”
The Chauxheys second house also has an internal courtyard that is accessible to the public, a library and the local water source.
Chavas second house was designed with a large open terrace.
The design is based around the idea of “a garden with the people, with a view,” Chaudbhiy said.
In the second house, the kitchen, dining room and living room are connected with the kitchen terrace and it is possible to have a balcony.
Chawari is also looking at the possibility of installing solar panels in the house.
Chhagwa Chauddhary said the main challenge with building Chavash houses was that the architecture had not evolved.
“It has been a problem that we have had for the last 10 years.
So we wanted to design houses that are not only functional, but also beautiful,” he added.
“There is a lot of energy going into this house, but it is also about the energy we put in it.
It’s a lot to keep up.”
He said the first house had been built with three walls, but since then, he had designed four different houses.
The house is currently being completed.
In its final phase, the Chaudhawas hope to add a fifth wall to the existing structure.
“At the moment, we have six houses and we are planning to build another house next year,” Chhauw said.
He also said that the new home will have a solar panel system and a water supply.
“People will not have to live in an empty space,” Chhawari said.
“They can live in this space and there will be showers.
And we have also built a roof garden.
This garden will be open for the people and will be a place for them to meet.”
