Green Valley Residence, Kochi, Residential-Single family dwelling

The residence is a single storey unit located on a 1.35 acre property in Kochi. This 4 bed room unit is self-sufficient in terms of its power requirement. The residence has been split into two zones based on privacy and the connecting it is an open court with a pool. The orientation of the residence helps in ample ventilation of spaces and effective shading of the court and other semi private areas. The court with the pool and deck buffers as well as connects the two wings of the residence. Large wooden openings, composite roofing system and elaborate landscaping lend a unique identity and character to the residence.

CONCEPT
Linking the Earth and Sky – Most of the spaces in the residence have the luxury of viewing the sky above and ground beneath simultaneously. This visual connectivity supplemented by the presence of lush green and water was a key component of the design conception and process.

MATERIALS
All the materials used in the project were locally available and local craftsmanship was encouraged during the construction and installation. Aluminium, timber, plywood, reflective insulation went into the production of roof. Teak for joinery, granite for flooring and stone for a few external walls were employed.

PROJECT SERVICES
The house is self-sufficient in terms of power. The entire roof area is covered with solar panels. All lights are LED based. It also has an effective water percolation network. The interior spaces are well ventilated, shaded and protected from heat by the roof and double glazed openings cutting down the energy use significantly. These factors make the unit responsive to the tropical climate and site conditions.
