The architecture of the house explores a play of volumes, materials and stark play of light & shadow. The volume blocking is strong & rigid with a further accentuation through contrasting materials – the stunning corten steel with stark whites. Corten steel is used prominently on the façade with seamless joining techniques following a strict geometry. The monotony of white blocks is broken with sharp block patterns created through aluminum grooves.

The house performs multi-functional role to suit the lifestyle of the clients – metamorphosing its spaces in a live-work-play system. From a cozy family den, to a design studio to spaces to exhibit their love for art and a space for hosting soirees for large group of guests – the house was to serve a multitude of purposes leading to a smart segregation of functions for privacy as well as creating transformational spaces to suit a variety of situations.
