This home is a modern interpretation of the courtyard home. Straight undeviating forms and bold expressions are the principal design intent of the structure.The C- shaped plan has been fragmented to form linear spaces most of which open into the landscaped court blending the interiors with the surrounding natural setting and allowing the building to breathe freely.
Glass replaces the walls to allow seamless connections between the outdoor and indoor spaces.The sky lit stair court and walkway is the unifying space of the house. It is flanked by the water body and landscaped court on either side and forms the prime transition space at all levels. Large decks covered with pergolas is a main feature of the house.Deep roof overhangs and the light roof cover help cut off sharp light allowing these outdoor spaces to be used all through the year.
