Pool House – New Delhi
Conceived as a ‘pebble in the grass’, this house acts as an extended entertainment center to a previously existing home. It has been designed in congruence with its context by using the same material palette nonetheless managing to express the shift in time of both buildings by virtue of its design. Asserting its presence with a singular, bold and robust frame, this house sits impressively within its surroundings with softened edges and a slight tilt. The construction system is shell based so cantilevering the block was not a challenge.
It almost seems like it is tucked into the lush green landscape within a stunning pool court.
Developed from a sturdy concrete shell, glass on either side of the elevation makes it visually balanced and transparent becoming the best example of a manmade object beautifully blending with God made nature. In the heart of this design lies its service core, the lifeline of any building, masked with a wooden block. This combination of wood and concrete renders an expression which welcomes its guests while dazzling them.
