House/2017

The residence was commissioned by a teacher who wanted to convert her existing family home into a multi-generation home to accommodate their growing needs. This was an interesting project for the Studio as it was an observation on Delhi’s common builder floor homes. The resultant was thus two independent apartments spread over four floors.

The material palette came from the original building made in exposed brick & concrete accentuated with timber panelling. Our adaptation of the same used exposed concrete and readily available ECO-Bricks made using brick industry residue for the walls and polished red sandstone for the floors. The use of wood through out the building breathes life into the otherwise pale palette, enabling visual connectivity between the spaces.
