Mr. Ajith’s Residence
A Contemporary Way of Living
This 50’X50’ contemporary house features grey stone cladding with two framed balconies which gives an extraordinary view of the house. Each volume is oriented in a way to provide the exterior view without any obstruction. The basic concept is creating volumes with projections along with a combination of horizontal members and vertical bars. The semi-open spaces with vertical slats and flat roofs with semi-open pergolas give the house a contemporary vibe. The vertical and horizontal bars balance the contemporary look. Balconies are placed in the corners for better ventilation and light to enter. This way the bedrooms can get maximum sunlight. The semi-open pergola is used for sun shading on the terrace helps to reduce heat.
The entrance is approached by a ramp going towards parking and landscape around, making the environment calm and water cascade features adding to it. The water fountain being the enhancing element of the house, adds aesthetics to the house.
