The Debris Block House is a private residence in Bangalore, India, close to the city's centre. Debris material from the existing building on the site was used to create mud-concrete blocks for the new home. The ground floor was cast in exposed concrete with an open floor plan, and on the upper levels, the blocks used for the wall construction were left exposed. At the centre, a sculptural staircase is washed with light from above with strategically placed skylights at multiple levels. Large planters at every level obscure the building from passers-by as the building blends into the surrounding foliage.
