THE COURTYARD HOUSE

THE COURTYARD HOUSE

Architecture and Interior Design for a House in Indore

Project area:  5,500 Sq.ft.  |   Completed Nov '18 

 

Our design – more introverted with courtyard, was completely liked by the client, as they had a very earthy, and traditional liking for his house, Similar to Old Indian houses.

Towards this design where the inside and outside flow into each other.  Volumes, light quality and simple textured, natural stones, survive with exposed Brick walls at some places, Sloping roofs provide an abode close to nature.

The sun rises at the entrance goes along the axis of the house, piercing the windows of the drawing room and sets in the final courtyard of the axis, giving the house its soul.

This house is very earthy and “Indian” in character, is more crafted with exposed brick, set around a small courtyard and minutely detailed with stone work, wood and cast iron furniture.  It begins to incorporate contemporary details, but retains all the elements of an old Indian house.
