  • Description
  • We call this project 'The Extended House'.

    The Villa is perceived as a series of functions revolving around a Central Core which is also a shaft of light within an inner courtyard. The existing structure has been thoroughly documented and conserved while interchanging and adding elements to the house. Segregation of private and public spaces has played an important role in the functioning of the house. The material pallette also lends a formal and cosy character to the house corresponding to the functions.

    The extensions are seen as Abstract planes that embrace the house from various directions, on the principles of 'Vaastu Shastra' - which is an ancient 'Hindu system of architecture'.
