Under Construction. Size: 8,000 s.f. New Delhi, India
Floating just above the ground on thin concrete plinth, this low profile residence is as light as it is monolithic.
Three volumes rest on a concrete plinth, one for each way the home-owner shares their residence with friends and family. The central spine is a grand foyer featuring an extensive art gallery that will rotate with a growing private collection. One wing is a collection of rooms to entertain guests that ends in two living rooms with floor to ceiling folding glass walls that open onto the grounds and overlook a 16 meter pool. The opposite wing houses a number of suites for everyone to retire to after a long day of enjoying each other’s company. Book-ending this wing is the master suite providing the home-owner privacy when needed.
