Architect's statement: The residence stands tall with its unique and sharply angled façade. The client- a well known fashion designer herself, wanted a simple but unique, eye catching house. The main idea was to have a house with large fenestrations but keeping privacy in mind. The north facing 28’ x 58’ has ‘A’ frame in façade- enveloping upper ground and first floor. It stands out as an architectural marvel giving powerful energy to residence in modern style.
The left and right angled corners envelopes a water body attached with main lounge and a green area next to powder room on first floor. Whether seen in day or lit up in evening this bold structure is hard to miss.
