Client: Jagatjit Industries

Status: In progress

Size: 17 acres

The project is based in Siolim, a village in Goa, situated around the Chapora River. Being located around the river makes this an extremely challenging project and a great location for the design of residential villas. These were the key determinants of the master plan and villa design. To enhance and optimally utilise the vegetation on site, certain significant axes are formed to optimize and achieve the best views throughout the site. The site has been divided into 14 plots each of which has a unique design and layout, to ensure best views from each plot. Villa locations and re-contouring is maintained in order to retain the maximum number of existing trees and ensure that the landscape merges between the plots. Each villa is a sculptural object: Due to the large expanse of land, immense foreground on site and a relatively low built volume, the design approach is to create each villa as a single sculptural object using horizontal planes to climatically screen and shade the built volume. The planes are offset from the building to create wind scoops that help channelize the wind into the building. The roof plane and the building skin are significant design features that respond to the climate and enhance the house as a sculptural object.
