The Portal House

Project: Weekend Family Residence 

Location: Umbergaon, Gujarat

Completed: Dec 2016


A 6000 sqft weekend home amidst green landscape flanked by existing trees.


This residence is a demonstration of grandeur of space built with humble materials. The residence is in a form of a “swastika” to allow the common parts of the house in the centre and each of the four cabana bedrooms located at the radiating arms. With the wrapping portals to the built forms the fragmented spaces are connected through different levels of outdoor areas. Each cabana bedroom is equipped with indoor jacuzzi and private decks screened by designed landscape walls for over viewing. This residence is developed to provide the clients with exclusive utility of expansive space as opposed to their urban lifestyle in Mumbai.
