This west facing house has been designed in such a way that the amount of sunlight and heat is reduced by pergolas at different levels thus improving the micro climate inside the house and its surrounding. The pergolas are specifically designed with geometric cut outs for aesthetic look as well as to avoid the large pergolas from looking too heavy. Utility areas like the toilets and balconies placed on the Western side as buffer zones to guard against the heat.

Projections of balconies, horizontal planes andLipt Tiless come together to form a facade with a unique character. This coupled with pergolas placed over landscaped courtyards create an interesting play of light and shadow in the midday Sun. Terrace area in front has been uniquely designed into a large garden space below the pergolas. Interiors of the house give a contemporary look with its sleek and minimalistic furniture and simple false ceilings. We aimed to create climatic comfort with luxury in this residence with uniquely interesting materials and intelligent use of spaces.
