Small Eco-friendly House Idea

Green laws or open areas are restricted to spaces outside a Bedroom window, Kitchen window, Internal lobby courtyard & to extendable lounge opening directly into large open spaces.

Planning such space for big houses is quite easy, but  “Restriction attracts challenges”. So how about creating interest in small  houses using a Green shaft area!! A chance of another innovative step for all Interior designers and Architects.

Small Eco-friendly House

The challenge here rises for small houses that have dull and dark rooms.

Buildings in Gurgaon, Place I am practicing is facing a challenge of having direct light and look out for each room of a building esp. Residences.

The rules and by-laws binds every house from 3 sides only front and back lawn are the source of breath for the house.People here tend to compromise with rooms having zero natural light and ventilation, so as to cover maximum space allowed by the bye-laws.

As a designer, a responsibility comes in light, finding a solution to such spaces can bring a relief to the “Compromise”.
Delhi NCR as we know is getting crowded everyday, people with large properties enjoy big lawns and terraces, but the majority are deprived of these. Providing this benefit of natural light & air becomes a compulsory concern for a designer.
