The design philosophy revolves around the art of crafting little oases around the home, that temporarily whisk the residents away from their bustling lifestyles.

The concept revolves around inviting nature into living spaces. Watch the complete video on Buildofy.

Stacked on a stilt floor, the lower ground floor ingeniously accommodates a rental unit, and a duplex dwelling above hosts living spaces for its owners. Trailing the same thematic division, a horizontal grid separates the distinct zones within the home. The Architects adeptly tuck away the private spaces on the southern façade, ensuring balance of public and private spaces.


The entrance gracefully resides in the north-east corner of the dwelling, concealed by an imposing boundary wall cum entry gate. Upon entering, a wide flight of steps, juxtaposed in contrast greets you, flanked by a lush bed of greens.

The contrasting staircase at the entrance doubles as a hangout space. To watch the complete home documentary, click here.

Beyond the green haven, is a water feature that is topped with a planter box. The botanical box introduces tranquil elements housing a contemplative Buddha statue beneath the shade of a temple tree, bearing resemblance to a garden. Perched on the upper level, is a swing, a profound testament to the family’s roots and rich culture.

On the upper ground floor, the green courts are elegantly perched on a level above from the public spaces. The dining area, adorned with low seating, is an ode to the rich Indian culture. The pièce de résistance is a centrally carved dining table, accommodating a temple tree at its end, allowing its branches to spill into the double-height space beyond. The dining court boasts of double-height ceilings with skylights and perforations that filter and diffuse patterned light, transforming the space into an ethereal realm. The planters and seating invite the residents in for an unhurried and mindful evening.

The pooja space featuring skylights and water feature exudes angelic vibes. Visit Buildofy for the video of the complete project walkthrough.

Adjacent to the dining court lies the Pooja space, its double-height ceiling and use of marble imbues a sense of sacred aura cherished by the family. Radiating angelic vibes, this space features a slit on the backdrop wall, climbing up to the ceiling. Through this slit, filtered light cascades, illuminating the marble and the idol. A water body plays the role of the co-star, further enhancing the spiritual ambiance of the space.


The bedrooms are safely tucked away on the first floor. With a warm embrace of wooden flooring and expansive seating of the platform bed, the master bedroom adds subtle touches of cordiality. A pop of colour through the pastel green finish in the kid’s bedroom enlivens the space.

The home flashes earthy palette throughout complementing the concept. Visit Buildofy for the video of the complete project walkthrough.
