JP Apartment

In this ground floor apartment, our challenge was to improve the integration of the interior spaces with the garden outside. The goal was to bring more light and the fell of the garden to the inside the apartment.  Evellyn Muller To achieve this, a wood structured roof was designed to occupy part of the garden and under it, the new kitchen area. As it is, it feels like a veranda when the glass doors are open, surrounded by garden on both sides.  Evellyn Muller The former kitchen used to be where the dining room is today. This change made it possible do remove all the walls except for the existing raw concrete pillars. With no interruption from the walls, we were able to reach the light from both sides of the social are... More

house madhuram

House Madhuram by Kacholiya Architects is an urban outstands in the local landscape. The design speaks for itself in terms of the urban style adopted; located in a rather dense locality, the site is neighboured by G + 2 storey structures on either sides, posing as a hurdle in terms of space & light restriction. Placed with a 30’ x 60’ alignment to the plot, the designer has managed to draw up a built-up area of 4240 square feet within a plot area of 1770 square feet.

A 39

Set in New Delhi, A 39 is a contemporary dwelling, reflecting on the family legacy. The third-floor apartment is renovated, extended and punctured to connect with a timber cabin on the rooftop. This is flanked by the formal garden on one side and a water body with a fountain on the other. The client belongs to an old Rajasthani family with a lot of ancestral heirlooms such as art, artefacts, silverware, glassware etc.  The brief was to take the general theme of a typical builder apartment where materials that generally feel expensive and rich such as Italian marble are taken, but generally tend to hesitate around everything else. Thus, the design intent was to heighten and exaggerate such materials. Aranmula mirror, the traditional mir... More

Milwood Residence

Located in heart of the Venice neighborhood, the Milwood Residence is a 3,800 square foot single-family home created to connect its occupants and their surroundings. Sensible programmatic adjacency and an open floor plan define the spaces at ground level. Occupants can move freely between common spaces which extend to exterior spaces as well as vertically via a central circulation 'void' to the roof deck. The 'void' was achieved via a custom operable skylight which fills the space of the circulation core for the home and allows access to the roof deck. This solved an architectural problem common to homes in the area. Many homes in Venice have roof decks, however, the code only allows a small amount of space to extend above the bui... More

Tall Wood Housing

Wood is a concept that mimics the natural growth behaviour of plants. The story of the structure begins where a tree is planted. When a tree becomes material for various structural purposes, the materials become a building and then the building decays with time and diminishes back into nature, creating an organism like lifecycle which exists without resisting and working along with major forces within earth’s natural ecosystem (more resilient architecture).Boom, acts as seed that spontaneously impregnates in nature. It sprouts to create symbiotic relationships between architectural culture and industry. When the system grows enough to create a cultural breakthrough, it starts to sprawl though the urba... More

ANALYSIS1.  A groundbreaking architectural vocabularyDefining the POINT and the LINE, W. Kandinsky and P. Klee have identified rich symbolic and conceptual content to these archetypal engravings.

OKU Rectorate Housing

As the building is expected to serve both institutional and private functions, the design focuses on the potential relations between of these two uses of different requirements. The first mass to be recognized upon approaching the building houses the reception chamber of the rectorate.

The reception unit and the house are connected via a bridge that houses a private study room for the rector.The structure provides separate open spaces both for the reception unit and the house, and allows spontaneous use of both. Both units are contained in modest masses to allow a spaci... More
