straight house

Ahmedabad outskirts, Gujarat    2006

The house runs the length of the plot, dividing it into 2 unequal portions. Along the length of the living space, sliding doors open to a sheltered passage, connecting the 2 outdoor spaces through the interior. At its end, the arcade rises as a ramp circles the space and arrives on the terrace whose glass table top skylights peer up while a small balcony pokes out to peak down at gatherings below.
