how cool are these spacers? i would love to have one, pleeease. a second home in maharashtra, india, is located on a rocky basalt outcrop which inspired the architects to extend the local materiality. these planks are mix of water, sand, cement and the granular basalt.

as a fan of exposed concrete wall, i found the house somehow seems a bit too solid, and cold. there is definitely not #cozy to this project. but i LOVE the texture and the paving layout… the details are simply gorgeous.

you can check out the rest of home here. couple of my favorite moments:
