The Weekend Home is a 4-bedroom residence in a gated community with a built up area of 6500 sq ft, and has clearly delineated visitor and private areas. The plan is a simple configuration of rooms around a courtyard. This central open space contains a kund and a large shade tree which breathes life into the surrounding sheltered zones. The emphasis here is on creating a constant dialogue between the inside and the outside.
Materials chosen are local stone, brick, exposed concrete, timber and glass to create textures and colors which are natural and bring warmth to the house.
