The face of this home does have a personality of its own. A combination of modern cubic forms, a vernacular roof and a solid wooden entrance gate are juxtaposed creating a beautiful collage of forms, materials and colours that brings about a strong sense of identity to the architectural vocabulary of this home. Large windows are equipped with double glazed shutters, that keep away the heat, as well as indiscreet eyes at night to give the homeowners a sense of privacy. One can also observe the delicate inclusion of nature at various levels to keep the home fresh and cool during the hot summer months. The spaces within and around the home are designed so that the family members can have their own privacy as well as socialise with one another at the same time. An open terrace with a fireplace on the top level provides the perfect spot to wind up the day.

A well demarcated space for sitting adorned by a feature wall and a back-lit ceiling complete the serene picture. WOW!.we can’t wait to see the rest of the home!
