LAKHANI RESIDENCE

This private residence is located in Koregaon Park, Pune. Approximately 10,000 SF in size, this house speaks minimalism in all aspects. A central sculptural circular stairs pivots the floorplates and provides access to both the levels. With lush green trees surrounding the site, the project was planned to look out at the green spaces in all directions. Large glass windows stretch the full height of this house. Wooden louver panels on the outside slide to close and secure the entire house when the residents are away. Vertical roller blinds add a second layer of covering to seal the house from dust when not in use. The geometric straight-line design of the house is deliberate, and enforces it in plan and in elevation. It is designed like a shell structure supported by shear walls.
