The House itself is detached from the ground to hold all the services, workstation and parking below. This move carefully segregates the harsh spaces from the soft dwelling spaces required for a home. The above volume of space can be perceived as two halves of its own, divided vertically with one accommodating the private spaces split at two levels and the other being an enclosed vault spanning into a double height volume across the mezzanine to house the common spaces such as the living, dining, pooja. The entry from the ground spirals up into the first floor garden. The careful addition of green outdoor spaces makes one feel as though you’re in correlation with the ground itself. The interior spaces open up into courtyards with balconies that bleed out from the very private closures. From the garden with a cornered main door in the scaled down profile of the vault , the volume inside is aligned with openings at the top to let in natural scattered light, adding on to the experience of a double-height space. The interiors and the exteriors follow the same dialogue of fluidic nature. In all, it gives a future sense of being with soft gradual edges that direct a sense of flow inside and outside.
