The design is conceived as free flowing space between four massive columns. Aligned to the cardinal directions, the free space contains the living areas of the house: dining, formal & informal lounges, bedrooms and even the kitchen for the possibility of flooding it with light. These areas engage with the surrounding landscape through large facades of glass. The columns on the other hand, contain services: staircase, elevator, toilets & bathrooms, pantry & stores.
Other than the two bedrooms and the inevitable entrance, the ground floor areas are largely left for unspecified use: social gatherings and individual and group activities such as yoga, crafts etc.
The second floor works as an autonomous unit with a generous suite, an intimate living are, a pantry and two terraces. The center of the floor, however, is a void looking over the dining below.
The first floor is the hub of the house accommodating the kitchen, an informal lounge, a suite and a formal living area; all arranged around a central double volume dining space.
The four large columns with minimal apertures are imagined as the only structural elements of the building, to be constructed in exposed RCC. All other internal partitions are non-structural and double up as storage & display units.
