Manoharan Villas

Location: Pallikaranai, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India

Challenge :
To provide ample lighting in 30' x 50' plot , Surrounded on all 3 sides by G+2 Apartments.

Solution :
Providing a narrow skylight along the length of the main staircase provides soft light from above for all the living spaces.

The design explores the potential to achieve two tenements one for owner & the other for tenant within the constraints of a standard 30' X 50' city lot. The planning approach was very direct with vaastu parameters and the client had interest towards modern architecture. Light is considered in the house as a means of defining scale and quality of the space. A narrow skylight along the length of the staircase creates varying conditions of light and shade throughout the day.
