Location: Village Dhorka, Gurgaon, Haryana, India
Cost: 50 Lakhs
Client: Mr. Ved Prakash
The brief for this project was to design a house for Mr Ved Prakash and his only son. Ved Prakash being a great devotee of Lord Krishna wanted to build this house keeping the ancient Hindu tradition, philosophy and Vastu Shastra as basic principal. The site being odd in geometry didn't help with the design. The requirement was to accommodate a multipurpose hall which could be used for commercial purpose at latter stage. The house is on two levels with three bedrooms and a spacious terrace. The design follows a simple straight line minimalist approach with a stone clad front wall as architectural element. As the house is South West facing therefore a box balcony is introduced to avoid direct Indian summer sun.
