House between Walls

Project: Weekend Residence

Location: Ahmedabad, Gujarat

Completed: Dec 2016


A 2750 sqft weekend home built between parallet 4.8m high walls rendering play of light and shadow throughout the day.


The residence has a double volume living area between the two parallel walls to celebrate the clear storey light that casts shadows on various surfaces and elements for changing appearance of the space. The house comprises of an open kitchen, two bedrooms with individual walkout spaces and a library that looks onto the double volume. The elemental features of the house are the two openings along the surface of the tall walls that are treated with different design expressions in timber and metal to celebrate the vast expanse versus the mild texture of the walls.
