The design of this weekend house in Khandala is focused on locating the house sensitively on the site in response to the natural gradient and the mountainous backdrop. The house in sited close to the hills on the west with all the principal living spaces face the east. The two-storied structure with its dominant hipped roof is completely oriented towards the mountain view with a strong relationship between the inside and outside spaces. A grand staircase leads up to the entrance lobby which is located midway between the lower and upper level of the house. The lower level has the public spaces while the upper level accommodates the private spaces like the family room and master bedroom.
