Vertical Louver House

Project: Family Residence

Location: Baroda, Gujarat

Status: Construction Stage


A family residence of 4200sqft situated within a gated community, that focuses on the exclusive spaces for every family individual.  The design highlights a floating first floor with full height windows that are screened with vertical louvers. This composition of design elements allows sufficient daylight while avoiding clear vision. The peripheral narrow form faced concrete walls are one of the key design and structural elements. The arrangement forms a vertical courtyard in the center, which is conceptualized as the heart of the house that connects public and private spaces.
