Best Constructed Private Residence

About the project
The site for this house lies along a busy arterial road and is on the peripheral edge of an extensive plotted development for private homes.The house is planned alluding to the traditional Indian courtyard house in response to the climate of the location. Temperatures in the lengthy summer months are in excess of 35° C, with the sun in the southern hemisphere.The extensive requirements of this 6 bedroom house are interspersed with sheltered open terraces and landscaped gardens around a 2 floor high naturally ventilated courtyard.
Large glass windows on the northern side allow indirect light to infuse the internal spaces of the house.Varying volumetric proportions with differing sectional spaces create an individual identity to each living space with the courtyard cohesively integrating them together.The house is designed for 4 generations to live together, with the oldest generation housed at the ground level and the younger generations on the floor above.
