Designed for a family with a couple, their son and visiting parents, the house tries to bridge the shortfalls of the modern open plot medium size urban dwelling. More or less the houses on small plots tend to look out into each other thereby resulting in perpetually closed and curtained window is all around and as a fall out society aspires to be in dark spaces lit by tube lights and air conditioners as respite. Going back to the traditional pol home as example the attempt here is to create a private living domain inside which the entire house opens into.

A private domain thus created between the two bays one each of bedrooms and another of services then draws in the nature, breeze, green and the sun deep into and through the house. The rear wall replete with windows and cabinet completely pivots out turning into a room with sky as the roof. This, coupled with sliding doors at the verandah, then make the entire length of the house from compound wall to compound wall unified private living space. This space is then graded with open, enclosed and open sequence of hierarchy. Notional center of the house, defined by four columns and jaiselmer stone flooring lies in the semi open and borders on the closed and open domain signifying a living which is out in the open with nature outside.
