Private Residence 02, Bangalore


The private residence for a family is situated on the edge a picturesque lake and reserve forest, right outside Bangalore. The building is designed as a series of indoor spaces and outdoor pavilions. The design had to strictly adhere to the principles of Vaastu. Building elements have been kept simple and the mass is minimized with the extensive use of steel to compliment the rustic setting. The house, on one side,  faces the lake, and on the other, looks inward into a courtyard. The ground floor houses a guest bedroom, living room, outdoor lounge areas and a kitchen with landscaped areas and a large lotus pond adding to the ambiance. The guest room is set apart from the main house to limit access and to enable its use independently. The upper floors house the bedrooms and yoga porch. Operable, louvered panels and the many open areas maximise the benefits of living next to a lake.
