House with 'Sliding Bays'

Project: Family Residence

Location: Ahmedabad, Gujarat

Status: Construction Stage

 

A 6800 sqft single family residence within a gated community with lavish lifestyle and exclusivity to individual spaces.

The house is designed as per parallel bays; each having its individual architectural and structural appeal. Every bay has a unique arrangement with open and closed spaces thus allowing activities of the spaces to spill into courtyards, semi open areas or light wells. The functions of the house are designed such that they can be shared for social gatherings by acting as extensions of each other through large pivot walls or completely operable shutters.

 

The strength of the house lies in its unique material expressions of each bay that reflects strong varied characteristics of its occupants.
