Sunday Home is an architecture that is filled with different shops which sells daily supplies, tailor services and other traditional items. The design seeks to question what make an architecture being “Indian”. I concluded that Indian architecture is reflected through its materiality and the spatial orientation. Other essential factors are the inclusivity of the natural elements such as air and light to the architecture. Hence, the design blends the interior and the exterior together to show the culture and identity of the Indian heritage.
