Nestled in a quiet by-lane, amongst some quaint old houses, the design intent was to create a simple structure that could provide for all the requirements but still respond to the neighbouring buildings in terms of scale.
As the programme was large and dictated by vaastu, the only solution was to go vertical.
To avoid an overwhelming mass, we designed the structure to step back as we go higher, thereby creating a series of terraces overlooking each other on every level. This also helped in responding to the scale of neighbouring buildings and the street.
Double height volumes and open planning allows for seamless movement and interaction within the interior spaces.
The son, being an avid swimmer allowed for us to design the lap pool to be connected straight out of his bedroom so he could wake up in the morning and jump right in.
