The client built this house celebrating the life of his just deceased father. The site is an island surrounded by roads on all four sides. The entire property historically belongs to the Firodia Family. The project is situated on a flat site within Ahmednagar city and envisioned as a home having expansively treated spaces defined by linear parallel walls overlooking landscape on all sides. The entire plan has been kept simple and yet dynamic, with oscillating volumes as you pass from room to room. The theme has been carried over in the interior which reflects the dramatic personality of the clients arising in a series of vibrant and charismatic living areas. It is a four level house with five bedrooms spread over roughly 15,000 sq. ft. plus an outhouse containing two bedrooms.
