Sitting at the corner of an inner street in a peaceful suburban neighbourhood in Bengaluru, this structure gracefully reveals itself gently through lush green plants. A home that invites greenery in, Mukund’s Residence is an ode to the client’s love for nature, and the family’s desire to stay connected with natural elements without compromising on their privacy. Within a simple grid layout, a water courtyard centrally cuts through the formal and informal living rooms, keeping the house cool and serene as well create an inside-outside connection. Natural light penetrates the home through a combination of cut-outs, shafts, windows and skylights. The upper floors have large terraces enabling expansive views of the surrounding landscapes and the nearby BBMP Garden from the bedrooms, bringing in more natural light. This determines the home’s form. The water courtyard, staircase with a light shaft, and copper screens on the Western façade, are the key highlights of the project. The Principal Architect walks us through the home, insightfully breaking down the scale, materiality, and construction process of major spaces and elements.
