“The Folly House in Pune was a response to a very odd brief: Make Mistakes. The owners were young entrepreneurs, looking to create a biography of themselves in the design of their home. They had concerns ranging from the effect of the residential environment on their young kids to their own productivity at home, and the various formats for living that the family enjoys to how they like to party.

The sprawling 4500 sq ft house offered a wide range of possibilities to respond to the brief. Our approach was to create an open plan home where every functionality of the home was compacted into multi-functional or mobile objects. The remaining space was left untouched, activated only when these objects unfolded, rotated or pivoted open.

The living room consisted of two such objects, a multi-functional carved wooden topography and a fold-out wooden cube. The continuity of space was paramount in the design of both objects. This created an ‘exteriority’ within the interior space. The overall experience of the house transformed from ‘living in rooms’ to ‘living amongst objects’. Since the nature of each object is different, the house remains unpredictable and new relationships between everyday home objects are constantly discovered. Chance and unpredictability create follies. Follies are objects in a garden of no particular purpose. Follies are also mistakes.”
