Ahmedabad 2016

This weekend house meant as a gathering and retreat place for a gujarati family is located in western locality of Ahmedabad. The design brief given was to develop the place more like a small resort. Keeping the essential brief in mind, the house is designed as two blocks separated by open to sky green space. The idea was to allow natural elements into these blocks and engage the user with these elements. The front block has the living, dining and verandah spaces which are more public in nature and are interpreted by a glass pavilion. The rear block houses the private bedroom spaces and kitchen and hence more stark and introverted in expression. A sense of openness and flow prevails towards the garden side.
