The Leaf House by SJK Architects resides in the  in the coastal town of Alibaug, India. The rooms of the house are sheltered by concrete canopies shaped like leaves. Supported by angled steel columns, the concrete roof canopies shelter all five rooms, which include four spaces surrounded by glazing and an open-air living room bordered by a lily pond and pool. One of the pods accommodates a second living room, while the others house a kitchen, a childrens’ room and master bedroom. The two sleeping pods also have their own private courtyards. “The client enjoyed the idea of pods [that were] overlapping but distinct to house each part of the home,” the architects said. “They [wanted] the journey between pods to be a sculpted open space encompassing native trees.”
