This house in the upscale neighborhood of Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad is characterized by its accentuated and cantilevered timber clad trapezoidal roof forms that hover above the main spaces. A series of staggered rooms with slopes in different directions orient towards the privacy of an internal garden.
The spatial layout maximizes the use of the linear site by dispersing the built form and greenery in equal measure along its length. The family required a segregation of public and private spaces and that was achieved in the vertical section of the house. Public spaces such as living, study, dining, puja, kitchen, guest room and home theatre are housed on the ground floor while the first floor has a master bedroom, two children’s rooms and a family area.
