This project following the ultra-modern design lines is all set to rise out of the soil of capital city, Islamabad. Our client Mr. Jamil Ahmed wanted a three floored house which should have connectivity as its integral part. The floors were to be linked through voids for visual connection, but the challenge was to designs voids while keeping the typical requirements of number of rooms intact.
Apart from the entrance triple height lobby, the central atrium overlooks the pool at basement and goes all the way to roof with a skylight.
The double height lounge is placed at the back as it can overlook the central atrium with pool underneath at one side and rear void area at the other.
Also the double height windows of the lounge will allow a view of mountain range from back side of plot (as long as the rear plot is not occupied). The basement multi-purpose hall right below the lounge can be physically combined with the two open areas at its both sides.
The angles of masses in the elevation, provides the required drama and aesthetically pleasing sight apart from being functional to avoid the south-eastern sun through these angles.
