Project Completed: 2011
Plot Area : 335.42 Sq M
Brief given was for a residence which could accommodate the three generations of the family.
Requirement was for 4 bedrooms, living, kitchen, dining, gym cum library, family cum home theater.
It was a typical urban assignment where the client's requirement was more than the plot hence the spaces have been designed vertical-G plus 2.
Designed in a simple way with straight lines. A climate responsive design and a perfect form of contemporary tropical architecture. Massing has been kept such that minimum openings are towards south and west to avoid harsh sunlight and radiation.With buffer zones designed between interiors and exteriors at various levels facing north and east, where one could enjoy their leisure time or have parties or get together. These were mainly designed since huge walkouts or gardens were not possible at all the spaces hence buffer spaces created in the form of terraces on the above floors with steel and glass pergola.
The task was defining the boundaries and connections between functional spaces and how people navigate these spaces, embodying the values and hopes of clients.
