India’s First Mass Timber Home

Residential, Timber Residence in Vagator | Goa

An upcoming residential project in Vagator, Goa, champions sustainability with the use of mass timber. It is the first residence in India to be built using glulam, a structural material from the mass timber family that sequesters or stores atmospheric carbon dioxide instead of emitting it. The design consists of a single linear block composed of 11 glulam portal frames, sitting lightly on the site supported on stilts and retaining walls. The functions of the home are organised in a flexible open-plan scheme, with large double-height volumes, ample daylighting and vast vistas.
