On the lower floor, the volume to the east is occupied by formal program as the Entry foyer, formal Living room and the dining area. The part to the west is more of a private living zone which also building helps in shading the central courtyard during summers. This coupled with the pool creates a cooler microclimate in the center that further enhances natural ventilation in the house through this space.
Simple textures and materials were chosen for the paving materials, decking such as granite slabs and cobbles for the external landscape, conferring a very minimalist reading to the spaces.
