The client’s specific wish was that the trees on this long rectangular block of land should be kept undisturbed. Keeping this in mind, the modern home design that developed was linear in form so that it could co-exist peacefully. The residence has a split ground level which takes one down to the rear garden through a corridor with a steel and timber grill, which continues right through to the first and second level of the house. The first level houses the master bedroom and children’s bedrooms along with a shrine room and the second level has a library and an utility area. Both levels have separate terraces which are to be linked at a later date.
