The project embodies a desire to sculpt rather than build, a structure with ‘soul’. The idea was to create an impression of “growing” from the earth, engulfing the space and returning to it. The curved contours impart a fluidic demeanour allowing the space to flow instead of dividing it. This conveys a sense of ‘organic dynamism’ and vitality.
The design process started with the inspiration to think out of
Modern minimalistic theme is followed in keeping interior simple but a certain panache and warmth is brought in by wood finishes and bursts of colour. The real challenge was adapting to the local climate. Shades needed to be adequate enough to protect from torrential downpours without disrupting continuity. Glass on white powder coated frames were used to keep shades in background, upvc frame installed for windows without protection. The main living area is double height with ventilation shaft to provide air circulation and cooling in summer.
