Location: Lonavala, Maharashtra, India

Project Work Status: Ongoing Projects

A second home to be located on a hill top near Lonavala, with every sloping contour and a rather tight area. This house was conceived as a construct of two rectangular prisms. The X prism will bee light weight latticed tube structure made of steel portals and braced for structural integrity. It will be clad in light weight boards and finished in standing seam Zinc. This tube will house a double height living room, kitchen and a tv room.

The X prism will structurally hang off the Y prism which is visualized as a concrete mast/ spine. This vertical prism will house four sleeping chambers with individual decks towards the view.

This curious juxta-positioning allows for every space having a view eta different elevation, minimal impact or footprint on the site and a shaded verandah next to the pool.

The house is a take on FLW's Romeo and Juliet tower - in our case Romeo will sweep Juliet off her feet.
