This site is an east facing property measuring 30’ North to South & 40’ East to West located in Uttarahalli which is a suburb of South Bangalore city, India. This is a typical site in the urban limits. The building is a column & beam structure with solid cement blocks as the wall materials. The roofs are basically concrete slabs with steel reinforcements. The external & internal surfaces are cement plastered.

The building facade has been extensively treated with stone & glass to create a balanced composition of positive & negative spaces. The structure symbolizes modernity & imparts an element of sleekness in design.

The internal finishing materials are a combination of vitrified tiles & granite for flooring, granite for the staircase, ceramic tiles & granite for the bathrooms. This, being a contemporary house plan design, has a lot of steel elements – some are structural and some are aesthetic.

A small skylight near the living pebble court brings in natural light through-out the day. The larger skylight above the dining area is covered with frosted glass resulting in a diffused light which is easy on the eyes. Two small patches of greenery near the living and the dining area brings nature closer to the inhabitants.
