Abode

A four bedroom house anchored around a central courtyard that celebrates the existing tree on site.

The design was to achieve an utmost simplicity by organizing spaces to generate maximum exibility in plan. None of the interior spaces were directly exposed to exterior light yet a buffer of green patches were introduced to let natural light in. Bathrooms in the four corners acted as insulation spaces.

The design ideology of built spaces is based on the theory of light as an ever-changing phenomenon. A house, more like a pavilion was strategized as a oating structure, with exposed at slab and free standing walls. Introduction of marble, in-between walls and slabs let the translucent light in and added craft in otherwise mundane junctions.
