Private Residence No. 03 Ahmedabad India Year 2019
Private Residence No.3 is designed as volumes organized around perpendicular spines set in a garden with densely landscaped edges that have been raised to give the sense of being enclosed by nature. The parking connects to an enclosed entry court through which one enters the house. The living and dining area form perpendicular spines, with the double-height living space framing views of the front garden and the sky. A landscaped balcony along the front creates a shaded veranda below, while modulating light that comes into the living room. The facade is articulated as a conversation between the starkness of concrete and the warmth of brick and wood that in turn engage with the voids and openings to protect the interiors from the harshness of the climate, while allowing them to engage with the landscape outside.
