Private Residence for a Large Family

The inspiration for this project comes from the client’s background, with the design inflecting a contemporary mood to their traditional communal lifestyle. Large, airy volumes serve as common spaces for the family to meet among themselves and the constant stream of visiting friends and relatives. An internal skylit court in which a large tree flourishes completes the design intent that aims to recreate the ambiance of a traditional "hallikatte" within a modern house.
