A couple with two children asked us to design a house for them. With one son in a wheelchair, the house had to be accessible. All the areas that are used on a daily basis, such as bedrooms and family spaces, are located on the ground floor. Less frequently used spaces, such as rooms for entertaining and guest bedrooms, are located on the upper floor. A large central courtyard, covered with a skylight, brings plenty of light into the centre of the home.
Located in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India. The plot size is 450 sqm (538 sqyd) and the floor area is 595 sqm (6,398 sqft). The project was completed in Apr 2007. Structural engineering by GRC Structures. Services engineering by Integral Designs.
