Description

The Five Seasons House, was rebuilt & re-purposed, brick by brick, with every inch of wood and metal recycled. It took nearly five years to complete, because the Dutt family believed that love's labour was not going to be lost at their old family home.

References:
The result is a painstakingly handcrafted home with creative nooks and corners that make you pause and re-look at sustainable living with fresh new eyes. There is the wasted metal and wood that has been turned into candle holders, old speaker metal parts that now function as ceilings, creaking water pipes which hold food on the dining table, old upholstery which is now the roof of the security cabin – every piece of furniture, wall and foundation in Vijay Dutt's home for all seasons has a story to tell and a message to pass.

Re-using everything in sight
Dutt's residence practises the 3Rs of waste management to the T. Outside the home you can see the majestic Ficus Elastica. You will

Re-using everything in sight
Dutt's residence practises the 3Rs of waste management to the T. Outside the home you can see the majestic Ficus Elastica. You will never guess that it was a dump yard earlier and that the Dutts adopted the tree, cleared out the dump, built a fence and using old tyres, left over paint and waste mud, created a mini rock garden.

The house blends seamlessly with its surroundings – it almost seems like an extension of the greenery outside. There is a perfect balance between light and air at the entry and exit of the hallway giving the impression that there is a connect indoors and outdoors; the squirrels get duped and run to and fro in to the house. At the entrance you can also glimpse a fascinating recycled artwork made from the spare parts of an ambassador car.

The living room is almost carbon free with its recycled furniture and up-cycled upholstery and the feeling permeates as you go through the house -through the organic furnishings, a recycled dog house, old trunks, re-purposed stone slabs, furniture made from water hyacinth, all vying for attention. The Dutt family has spent years in the handicraft and handloom sector, a deep knowledge they bring to the design sensibilities inside the house.

Sharing the joys of earth-friendly living
The fruits of a sustainable life are too precious to be enjoyed alone, say the family – parts have been let out as a community centre to encourage a holistic lifestyle encompassing art, health, food along with spiritual sessions like a Satsang, yoga, mediation, community gathering for contemplation etc.
