BRIEF :

The project is located in Mohali, of Chandigarh that is exposed to urban rapid growth. The client expectation was to create a dwell that could impress every kind of person the design which should be universal in character.

FACADE :

The layers of massing in perfect proportion creates an attractive facade. The use of different material like stones with grooves and wood balance explains the modern approach of the architect.

The overall concept was devised as a free plan with overlapping spaces to allow flexibility. However, the movement was choreographed to unfold the layers as one moves along the vertical axis of the house.

DESIGN THOUGHT :

Although the overall spirit of the space is strongly Indian in character, with emphases on transcendent spaces like the verandahs and covered terraces, the architectural vocabulary is completely contemporary with universal detailing. The interiors were conceived as a space defined by planes turning and intersecting, while in some cases, carefully sliding over each other.

CONCEPT:

The overall space is organized around a central courtyard that not only allows for light and ventilation but also serves as a means of introducing space in the interior that is excluded by the covered area regulated by the building bylaws. The aim of the design, i.e., to respond to universality, has been adhered to by keeping in mind the principles of Vaastushastra (an ancient science that a number of users want to follow).

SPACES :

The dwelling unit had a total of five bedrooms. The ground floor houses all the public areas and two bedrooms, while the first floor has three bedrooms along with a central space that is integrated with the large front-covered terrace.

Another important aspect of the concept was the emphasis on ambiguous boundaries, which is manifested, literally, in the project’s peripheral boundary walls.
