The home built on a 10,000sft plot has been designed for a family of four. The brief was to create large spaces with adequate connect to the green outside at all levels but at the same time ensuring that the family privacy is not hindered. Since the family came from a sports background it was essential that spaces were created to accommodate different sports that could  be played and also to practice their musical hobbies.

The house has been lifted off the ground by a few feet to accommodate a basement which mainly houses a large courtyard, play area, home theater and an office. The main floor of the house has been divided into two spaces which primarily are the formal and family spaces. The family & dining on one side connects to a large garden on the road side and the living on the other connects to the courtyard on the basement level allowing ample light and cross ventilation throughout. The upper level mainly houses the bedrooms and a family space.

As the family is well travelled across the globe, their main brief for the interiors was that the space should feel like a home and not a hotel. Earthy tones, exposed cement finishes, natural materials like brick and bethamcherla with lots of green were the key ingredients that were used to make this their dream home. Small and large spaces were created for art and sculptures that the owners collected in all their travels.
