Designed by Rashmi & Robin Sen at the New York firm of Sen Architects, this exclusive community of four bungalows is built on a field called “Langotem” in Varca, South Goa. The bungalows, set in a serene landscape of paddy fields and coconut groves, seek to provide modern amenities while retaining the essential elements of contemporary tropical design. Within a mile are the river Sal, as well as the long Salcete coastline and the quiet, pristine beaches of Varca.
The verdant landscape permeates into the bungalows. Placed around a long pool courtyard, the bungalows have large windows and deep verandas and balconies, which become intermediate spaces between the interior and exterior.
Other tropical and vernacular elements in the design vocabulary include the steep barrel-tiled roofs, tall openings, tile borders and surrounds. The landscaping is of indigenous plantings, many of which were preserved on the site.
Each bungalow layout features a Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Powder room, 3 en-suite Bedrooms, Family Lounge (or Bedroom 4), Staff room with toilet, and Laundry/Utility room . The bungalows are replete with contemporary fittings and features, yet overall exude the style, warmth and character of a tropical home.
