Not just another designer..

Architect and designer, Sandeep Khosla, has a wide repertoire of successful projects. His firm’s distinct style of tropical residential architecture uses local materials and concepts, but reinterprets them with an innovative and contemporary design sensibility

Presenting some snippets from Sandeep Khosla’s work:

The roof uses the distinctive style of traditional homes in rural India




Water feature in the ‘indoor courtyard’


Notice the antique chest on the left, and how the colors of the painting match that of the water body!

Interesting wall

Traditional metal ‘nandi’ statue fits in well in the contemp design

Adore the reading lamp!

Integral part of homes in south of India – water feature within the house

Another example of an internal courtyard open to the sky

Who wouldn’t want to live in this home? 🙂

Textured wall, treated wood for slab, and an interesting faucet

Mediterranean style lounge

Diyas and flowers floating in water niche in the table!

  3. I would be more than pleased to host you Melanie! 🙂

  4. Beautiful pictures. I love this place , it looks so peaceful .I’m planing one day to come to India , to discover your magical India

  5. Glad you liked it Lady Luxie 🙂

  6. Am I in heaven or what???!!…Awww’ the internal courtyards are soooo just peaceful…I want that! I want that!…

    Oh’ luxury luxury…come to me!

  7. So true Shaji! And using the local material also ensures that the buiding is ‘suited’ to the local climate and condition.

    thank for dropping by 🙂

  8. hi bhavna, u r right! who wouldn’t want to live in a house like this. the water body and its surroundings look exquisite. there is total merger of all in each. the slab and facuet r fabulous. it’s nice to see architecture using local materials instead of building homes in kanyakumari with marble brought all the way from makrana, all ur hard earned money being mis-spent on transport costs instead of adding value to the home.

  9. Hi Xander! Glad you liked the image – it is also one of my favorite’s in this post.

    Hope to *hear* from you again! 🙂

  10. I love the colors in the photo of the sink… the cool light of the candles around the stone basin, and the warm light glowing on the wood. -X

  11. Beautiful note Adi!

    ‘cos it’ll be decorated with love and care

  17. Ash

    Wonderful images. Thanks for sharing!

  18. Thanks Brilliant Asylum and Patricia! Another interesting fact is that according to ‘vaastu’ (ancient Indian science of architecture), the water body should always be on the ‘east’ to provide the best benefit to the home owner. 🙂

    Welcome to An Indian Summer, Chamiya! Glad you enjoyed the post!

  19. wow..! I am blown away by all of the designs!

  20. What beautiful photos. I love internal courtyards and water features in homes. I wished I lived in a climate that I could incorporate these features. I particularly like the traditional roof structure in the first picture.

  21. So beautiful how water is incorporated into the design. I would love to have an indoor courtyard with a reflecting pool!
