The site is an island surrounded by roads on all four sides. The entire acreage property historically belongs to the Family. The client built this house celebrating the life of his recently deceased father.
The project is situated on a flat site within Ahmednagar city and envisioned as a home having expansively treated spaces defined by linear parallel walls overlooking landscape on all sides.
The plan is kept simple and yet dynamic, with oscillating volumes as you pass from room to room. The theme has been carried over in the interior which reflects the dramatic personality of the clients arising in a series of vibrant and charismatic living areas.
It is a four level house with five bedrooms spread over roughly 20,000 sq. ft. plus an outhouse containing two bedrooms. The house has minimum fenestrations on the south side. It complies completely with the ancient principles of vastu shastra which dictate the positioning of all rooms.
The house has a stately entrance deeply inset from the main road with a circular corbelled driveway to maximize privacy in the house.
A triple height informal living area acts as a pivot around which all other living areas are arranged. This central living area is open on two sides to landscaping and is flooded with natural light owing to which all transitions from the different spaces within the house feel light and airy.
The entire house embraces technology, to enhance its environmental performance, and all active systems run on automation making the use of lighting and appliances efficient. The house has integrated AV systems operated individually by IOS gadgets.
