A huge Buddha in sitting meditation position with greenery near to court makes the whole environment peaceful and static. The plan revolves around a central courtyard open to sky. The inhabitants experience all the weathers, throughout the year. The planning theme involves, putting up all the four important bedrooms on the ground floor. This private area of the bedrooms along with the living hall is segregated by the public area drawing room, kitchen and Puja room by landscaped courtyard. A huge volume of drawing room with tall windows and the handmade canvas painting on ceiling gives the royal look. The living room is planned outside all these four rooms with a toughened glass partition up to the ceiling to view the beautiful courtyard outside with green and the huge Buddha statue.
