A central feature of this house is a freestanding triple height form-finished wall that divides the living and dining areas, and culminates in a roof with strategically positioned skylights on either side .

A cutout in the slab allows the skylights orienting east west to capture the sun from morning to afternoon, and bathe the wall with an ever-changing dance of natural light. To allow penetration of natural light and fresh air, a clean composition of internal volumes and voids was designed which also enables the spaces to flow into each other while merging with the outdoors.  

The spatial arrangement on the ground floor allows for free visual movement between living and dining areas and a constant connect to the outdoors.

The triple-height mandir provides ample natural light on either side offering a multitude of spatial experiences for the user.

The upper level is an area for the family’s refuge, with the master bedroom and two children’s rooms converging into a casual lounge. The materiality of the house is a muted mix of beige tile floors, gypsum white colour ceilings, cane sheet based partitions and cast concrete surfaces.

These are juxtaposed with strong tropical colors in the textiles like a beige, light grey and morning glory. The house tells a narrative about its owners and what they do.

The spaces for the family and close friends are warm and interactive and the connect with nature is constant. An opulent ambiance is created with the use of beige colour tile wooden flooring in bedroom.
