The residence is a multilayered three story residence with a roof garden and gym on the the 4th level. The private and semi private spaces are planned around a two storied courtyard that open towards the rear green yard viewed from all sides and terminating to a natural mountain at the back.
The design team was able to clearly differentiate between the main house which comprises of the basement, ground and 20% of the first floor with an independent access to the roof garden.
The 80% first floor is subdivided with an external entrance as an annexe and part of the overall program since the first day.
The rectangular building block is subtracted both horizontally and vertically to marginalise each and every space that looks at a green garden or water body with cross ventilation and natural light which is a signature of the father/ son duo’s.
They however have tried to explore more materials and in this case the travertine stone is used in 5’x2’ large format for the entire building exterior facade and repeated in the Interiors in all levels.
Suhail & Fawad Architects is known for their bold yet simple approach.
