In the court area besides the swimming pool, we needed to mainly address the issue of spatial planning and protection from afternoon heat and the monsoons. Working in collaboration with Ar. Nivedita Shinde of Naivedykala, we decided to interweave a semi translucent permanent cane roof which allows light to filter through, in between the huge tree canopy above the court area, allowing for a sense of openness and the sky. The juxtaposing of the covered and open spaces creates an outdoor garden landscape.
