This house stands out unique and very first of its kind in HPA's folio. The house is in Indian tropical climate just few minutes away from Ocean. Since both, client and we adore the tropical landscape we wanted to achieve the quality, which completes the surroundings, and vice versa. The very texture of client's sustainable lifestyle has woven into design and execution as well.
A narrow paved passage beautifully covered by native plants leads to vestibule & open verandah. Open verandah faces green lawn and plantation on three sides. Vestibule connects family room and living room, while verandah is also an extension of formal living room. The central structure of house consists of formal living room and dining room, which opens to back verandah. A passage from formal living room running parallel to lily pool on one side and rooms & courtyard on other ends to children bedroom and master bedroom.
