CREATE SPACE – FUNCTION MIXER
The House is designed to inter-mix the three primary usages – Living + Working + Sleeping
Instead of creating recreation areas for each member of the family separately, consolidated living spaces are provided. This compels the members to step out of their private abodes and gather for newspaper chat, morning coffee, cricket matches or Ps3.
Lack of physical partitions (doors or walls) between Living Spaces and strategically placed atriums ensure that spaces blend into the other either physically or visually to maintain continuity.
The Utility Areas too, like the staircase, add to the Living Space by serving as a library or a display unit.
The plot is positioned across the 1 Acre sector Park. The massing of the house is designed to enjoy this green vicinity. This is done by two specific moves:
There is an attempt to enhance walled spaces through architectural detail. For the same intention, the house permits abundant natural diffused light. Be it through large northern glazings or the skylights.
