Manoharan Villas

Location: Pallikaranai, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India

Challenge :
To provide ample lighting in 30' x 50' plot , Surrounded on all 3 sides by G+2 Apartments.

Solution :
Providing a narrow skylight along the length of the main staircase provides soft light from above for all the living spaces.

Result:
The design explores the potential to achieve two tenements one for owner & the other for tenant within the constraints of a standard 30' X 50' city lot. The planning approach was very direct with vaastu parameters and the client had interest towards modern architecture. Light is considered in the house as a means of defining scale and quality of the space. A narrow skylight along the length of the staircase creates varying conditions of light and shade throughout the day.
