Entry Description

The basic concept of the pent house was to create a different atmosphere with the help of sun and its shadows. The lattice work, trapezoid panels, and curtains are used to create the play of light and shadows throughout the day according to the changes in positions of the sun. An attempt is made to play with a non orthogonal geometry, an exercise involving volumes and sections that arise out of a response to the sun path. Entering the house through a single-height lobby and proceeding past the guest suite, kitchen and dining areas, there is a dramatic expansion into a soaring double-height living area overlooking the living area with attached terrace. Horizontal louvers are used in windows creating an intriguing pattern of shadows within the spaces.
