With its construction about 30% complete, the concept around which the Aura house is being built is still in a state of evolution. Fun, natural light, ventilation and other prerequisites of the design are the basic standards of Sanctuary’s designs. What makes Aura house stand apart is that it is not a typical urban house. It is a house that brings the outside in, without compromising its high sense of security and organised space. Blocks have been created to serve various functions. And although large common areas (within the interior of the house as well as on the poolside in the courtyard) have been incorporated, private spaces too are clearly defined. This brings in the flexibility to use the space for various scales of gatherings, or even ‘just-us’ evenings.
