Located in Mumbai, India, S+PS Architects' Collage House, built for a large four-generation family, plays on the contrast between the contemporary and the traditional. The project looks at the idea of recycling to inform its design, with a collage of mismatched old windows and doors from demolished houses in the city used to construct the front-facing facade.

Inside they form the backdrop for the living room, where exposed concrete and polished white marble tie everything together, despite their unlikeness to the refurbished wooden panels.

Concrete frames in several finishes connect all three volumes, complementing a design language that finds harmony in both the rough and the finished.
