The 1,200 sq ft corner site presented us with the classic urban scenario. The site was abutted by houses on two sides and flanked by low income housing on the other two sides.

The question thus posed to us was, “What would be the relationship of the dwelling to the outside?”

The stand taken by us was to incorporate the “outside” inside while the building shuns the surroundings. A classic diagram of this would be the traditional courtyard house. Taking this classic diagram we moved the court to the corner to create new spacial and formal effects. By moving the court to the fourth quadrant of the square we cold magnify the boundaries of each program flanking the court i.e. the living room, the dining and the bedrooms would not only feel much bigger but also would have sectional relationship with the open to sky court.

The court is further articulated by placing a sculptural element that would serve as an informal dining area as well as a tub housing a tree. The jali wall cast in-situ completes the fourth corner to accentuate the experience of the court.
