Chandelier House

Ahmedabad, Gujarat | 2015 - ongoing 

The House is conceived as a four storey structure which illuminates on the inside with natural light. This is done by introducing light well in the form of through and through cut-outs in the building which helps the ground floor receive direct light. 

The illumination which lets the house act as a chandelier is done with the materiality and planning of each floor. With typical first and second floor plan connected with an internal staircase, the circulation space acts as a divider of common and private spaces with marble partitions which help light up the space. The attempt is to let the simple plan of the house breathe and let it develop a character of its own by the play of light and different material as a defining element.
