Status: Built

Size: 17,000 sq ft

The Art house was designed in close consultation with the clients who are great patrons of art and wanted the house to be a backdrop for their art collection. The site is located in the Lutyen’s bungalow zone in New Delhi, with considerable site restrictions. Hence, the site planning and layout proved to be a challenge. The residence is developed on basis of two curved planes enclosing a large green space with bigger rectilinear blocks offsetting the curved lines. Keeping the initial client brief in mind, the surface treatment of the façade is predominantly with glass to facilitate transparency and visual integration of the outside greenery with the inside spaces. This enhances the view towards the artwork on clear, large walls that are lit effectively from the outside. The glass walls also help to underline the depth of the house with the amount of daylight flowing inside through the skin. The entry foyer on the ground floor opens into a courtyard consisting of a backlit installation wall to showcase artifacts and a transparent vista runs across the house with a shallow water body to display various artistic sculptures. The living room is minimalistic in design with a customized wood wall equipping the bar with hints of foliage imparting an ecological backdrop in all the common areas.
