Consider this... farmhouses are so blah and what’s cool are holiday homes. Isn’t it a jolt from nowhere? Well, well-established city architects think that it is time for farmhouses to move aside and holiday homes to take center stage. They mean sustainability, usage of local materials, and being non-intrusive to nature or where they are located.


When it’s a holiday home, it’s usually in a home away from the city and could be at least a kilometer away from a village. Usually, in a farmhouse, there is a farm; there is a house built in Dhaba style and is decorated in a particular manner.


But a holiday home makes use of the materials available locally, is non-intrusive in terms of its architecture, and blends well with its surroundings. There is a sense of informality, and the color, texture, and shape are suited to the locality. For example, Kamal Kamaraju has a holiday home in Chevella which he says is a ‘cabin the wood.’Yeshwant Ramamurthy, the principal architect at STUDIO ONE, adds to it by saying that a holiday home respects nature. He says one has to follow Gandhiji’s philosophy of sourcing local materials and local styles as these will be carried forward to the next generations and provide a livelihood to the locals.


An ideal holiday home must have a flexible floor plan with a large hall which should be more than half the house, two toilets, a kitchen. It must have large doors and windows made of local wood. If one is building a holiday home in Zaheerabad or Bidar, then they can go for compressed earth blocks, and if one opts for Chevella, then they can go for local rock blocks. All holiday homes have a roof instead of a flat ceiling. Also, one has to take care of weather and soil conditions before finalizing a plot.


The best places to opt for a holiday home around Hyderabad include Vikarabad, Chevella, and Narsapur.
