Four prototypical houses were developed by us for the development of Lavasa, Lake City located in the picturesque hills over looking the Dasve lake. Two of these (P2 and P5 Downhill) were based on initial designs created by the American firm HOK while the other two (P5 Uphill and P7) were designed completely by us. The key principle guiding each plan was the logic of the landscape to minimize the cutting and filling of the slope and integrate the house into the sloping terrain. Stone, semi rough plastered walls and mild steel railings along with terracotta tiled roofs are the spectrum of materials used. Large openings capture the views of the lake and provide good light and ventilation. Level differences that naturally arose out of the siting have been used strategically to carve out courtyards and terraces so that indoor spaces flow effortlessly into the outside.
