Weekend Home - Bangalore, Residential-Single family dwellingProject Status: Completed
The brief from the client was that the house should be conducive to host gatherings of varying scales, along with being a refuge for the family from the urban context. There was also a possibility that they could eventually move into the place permanently. They desired a house from which they could enjoy the entire 13,000 sft property.
The idea behind the project was the courtyard- an 'outdoor room' which connects the house to the landscape and also forms the centre, unifying the entire composition. This central open space was formed by a simple U-shaped configuration and contains a 'kund' with a large shade tree which breathes life into the surrounding sheltered zones.
The living room is treated as a singular element, more public than the rest of the house and it takes shape as a 15' high glass box sandwiched between 2 concrete slabs, the whole hovering over a reflecting pool. All spaces in the house have opportunities to spill out to different areas with terraces and balconies at various levels, while still being connected visually from the central court. The master bed, along with spilling out to the central court, also has a more private rear court to look out to.
The intent was the house be climatically responsive and all the glazing has deep overhangs to protect it with living room further cooled by the surrounding water body. The house is further insulated by the use of filler slabs, a technique where the concrete roofs have hollow clay blocks within.
The materials used are locally available textured black and grey stone along with exposed concrete, brick, wood and glass to create colours and textures that are natural and exude warmth.
1- Selected for 'The Merit List'. The Merit list is an initiative by Matter, to recognize projects of critical relevance in terms of design and thought in the context of contemporary Indian architecture.
2- Nominated for the NDTV Design and Architecture Awards 2015.
