The need for slope as a part of the brief and our own interest to explore this familiar idiom in the south of India became the starting point to modulate this volume. The slope was considered from the south to the north and this aspect reiterated the length of the volume. The choice was based on climatic considerations and clients interest in vaastu. The roof was tilted along the diagonal to create northeast as the lowest and south west as the highest point. This was subtly folded along the south east and northwest to create a more workable volume within. The footprint informs the roof which in turn responds to the alternating pattern of built and unbuilt, here the roof was subtracted or folded down to create openings above the courts. This results in a roof terrain which is seen as an augmented terrain which can be accessed at the first floor and can continue moving on it to the second floor
