Center Court Villa, Residential-Farmhouses
The villa is designed with two sets of parallel masses with another volume perched above, perpendicular to the former creating two courtyard spaces. The two courts, one to north and the other facing south resulted in a H-shape configuration.All functions are programmed around these two courts so as to provide maximum unhindered views of the landscape from almost all habitable rooms.
Strategically placing the pool adjacent to the north court contained this space and formed the focus of the project, hence the name ‘center court’. Other smaller internal courts helped to achieve maximum natural daylight to interior spaces of the house
The volume to the east is occupied by formal program such as the Entry foyer, formal Living room and the dining area. This formal zone is primarily a single storey volume with high ceilings. A timber and steel bridge spans over a reflective pool connecting the drive court to the entry foyer. The access to the house is shaded by an extended canopy that cantilevers out over the drop off.

Strategically placing the pool to adjacent to the north court contained this space and formed the focus of the project, hence the name ‘center court’. Other smaller internal courts helped to achieve maximum natural daylight to interior spaces of the house.
Both floors are linked through a central double-height space containing a sculpted staircase. This wing forms the main passage connecting the two masses on the east and west on the ground floor as well. The striking white staircase with floating steps and glass railing stands out against white walls making the space minimal and very calm.
This central double-height wing has full glazing on either sides and overlooks the long, rectangular pool to the north court. Walking through, one can view both courts on either sides simultaneously as if the passage is part of the landscape.
The upper floor comprises of four bedrooms in all with two being the master suites housed in the west wing. While one suite faces the private greens to the west the other one has views of the north court and the pool from above. This master bedroom has a connecting lounge with glass walls and boasts of an extended covered terrace that feels part of the loung
The dining area is aligned with the central court leading to the pool outside the patio in front of the Formal living and bar. Opposite the dining room to the other side, is the multimedia hall. With the placement of the projection screen at the end wall one can view it from not only the courtyard, but from across the dining space as well.
The interiors are strongly interconnected with the exterior spaces and the choice of materials play with the two realms. Interior spaces are intentionally very minimal. With vistas in all directions, large expanses of glass allow the landscape views to provide the visual experience that the client had originally requested for
For the outdoor landscape, simple textures and materials were chosen for the paving materials, decking such as granite slabs and cobbles, conferring a very minimalist reading to the spaces. A transition in landscape is n oted through crafting of different textures in these materials using the same color. The planting has been done to achieve a combination of sculptural and foliage accents
