Tree Embracing House

Project: Family Residence.

Location: Ahmedabad, Gujarat

 

A 4000 sqft home of a closely knit nuclear family with exclusive breakout zones to each public or private spaces.

This is a two storied single family residence which celebrates an existing tree by identifying an entrance courtyard and a water feature. All the public spaces of the house are kept connected to the tree framing its beauty in parts or in whole.

 

The flying roof of the building mass allows to make a dialogue with the canopy of the trees, opening the internal spaces to the sky and shade of the tree together. The house has a special terrace in form of a green space that doubles up as an entertainment area or an elevated lawn while hugging the tree.
