If you are a nature lover and are looking for a peaceful, quiet village stay with a view of the mountains & valleys you will love Woodhouse Farm.

Originally built as a vacation home by the owners for personal use-Woodhouse has the comforts of modern house but is located in a village called Satoli, surrounded by traditional village houses & farmland. It is a place to enjoy the solitude, the weather, long walks and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

The space
The house is surrounded by traditional village houses reflecting the spartan life of local farmers. The design of this house refers to the proximity of snow clad panorama of the northern Himalayan range at the horizon and remains rooted strongly to existing and unharmed terraces it occupies.

These two overwhelming landscape features compelled the building’s placement at the lowest terrace level of the property and merging with the larger environment.

Spaces are organized on three distinctive levels. Each approximately occupy 14.50m x 3.60m of the natural terrain with undisturbed spectacular views of the neighboring orchards and the town of Almora, experienced and architecturally expressed through a continuous glazing all around the external floating envelope.
This rift addresses a transition between the exposed dressed dry stonewall base excavated from site and the oiled ‘tun’ wood cladding, acquired from this very region. Four ‘sal wood’ frames made of multiple glued planks and thin steel tie rods, support the entire timber covered roof, the insulated building envelope, the entire wooden mezzanine floor and shape the iconic double glazed skylight.

The entire house suspended from these robust truss frames without the support of any intermediate columns allows an undisturbed flow of contours into the silent ‘pine wood‘paneled interior spaces. Carefully crafted collage of square windows towards all directions ensures ‘zen’ views of various mountain peaks and ever-changing clouds.
Rain water harvested for use through tanks located at the base of the property.
In September 2017 Woodhouse was featured in “Ten Houses in India Located in a natural context”
