Funnel Court House

Project: Family Residence

Location: Jetpur, Gujarat

Status: Construction Stage

 

A 2700 sqft multistory single family home built on a linear and deep plot. The site only permits a short facade along the main road thereby guiding the design of the house,  leading to the introduction of a funnel court that connects spaces vertically and enchances light and ventilation.  The design embarks on articulating usable spaces carefully such that their spatial volumes allow opportunities for stack ventilation. The structure is planned independently perpendicular to the adjacent parallel walls, resulting into making of air shafts between the different buildings.
