‘Aaranya’ an agricultural farm stay situated peripheral to the Gir Lion Sanctuary in Sasan is a modern translation of the much acclaimed vernacular style of architecture. Highlighting the terracotta tiled roofs extended to the ground, the cottages are oriented north- south in order to minimize the heat gain and maximizes the cross ventilation. Designer Himanshu Patel from Ahmedabad’s d6thd design studio aimed at reducing the structure’s visual as well as physical impact due to the prevailing earthquake prone area thus, explaining the small scale of the cottages.
