Archium’s Rocking Radio Building Blends Into the Nepalese Landscape
The new stone building sits 3,000 meters above sea level and it features a rising antenna with strings and colorful flags attached. The project was inspired by vernacular architecture, and the rooms are organized around a central courtyard. The building is mostly made from local gneiss stone, although wooden details in the furniture, windows and doors provide the interiors with some warmth.
Hand-carved stools made from solid tree trunks stand against the grey walls. Several of the rooms are paved in the same irregular stones used for the outdoor spaces, while others feature tightly packed smaller stones. Made by locals from local materials, this unique radio broadcasting station totally rocks.
