The house as a platform has been used to investigate two issues central to design today: the family as a social unit and the environment. The house hence, becomes a means of demonstrating that it is possible to meet challenges of lifestyle and the environment. The Indian lifestyle is an overlap with many diverse aspects; there is a multitude of interactions, varied levels of privacy and public exposure that are inherent in the traditional Indian home. The Indian residence is more of a social interaction space vs a western notion of more public space interaction. This residence multitasks as a house for three generations of a family and their many visitors, a busy workspace, and on occasion a sociocultural hub within the city. It embodies a customized specificity for a contemporary Indian Joint family, a design studio and a contemporary working couples needs to bring up their children in an interactive Indian manner. This led to the development of a unique design brief and a diverse spatial program. The relationships and the variety that exists in the spatial program as a result of the nuclear family vis-vis the traditional joint family setup stands out particularly.
