Text description provided by the architects.

The courtyard house is designed with a grid of 7’x7’. The house has been designed in such a the way that all the living spaces and passage face open space and garden, which was also the main design concept since its inception, thus creating a central courtyard which holds the reflection pool making it a major design element. This also makes the design an introvert one, leaving the garden at the backside but still visible and accessible from all the rooms of the house.

The formal living room comes first along with 2 bedrooms followed by 9’ wide passage parallel to the central courtyard and reflection pool. The passage ends to the dining room and family room. This area is a maximum used area, thus it has a big veranda all three sides, which adds the value to the north-side garden.

This house has a big size of openings and skylights to allow an ample amount of light to be entered into the house throughout the day. It is also a crucial feature in Ahmadabad’s climate. Here the light is essential but not scorching heat. Screens and deep veranda protect these huge openings from harsh Sun. Verandas also become wonderful outdoor spaces during relatively cool evenings and mornings.

Courtyard House is made of RCC roof structure covered with wood. Also, veranda and upper rooms are covered with wood. Floors are covered with natural marble stone & wooden planks. Custom-designed doors and windows are made of wood and laminated glass.

Basic principles of Architecture have been applied to the house and the use of art & art-objects makes the spaces of ‘timeless’ quality.
Architecture, Interior & Landscape Design is done by HPA, thus synchronized well with each other.
