Project Brief

DP House is a proposal for a farmhouse located on a 3-acre plot, in Silvassa, Gujarat. The proposal emphasizes on the form of the house, as it tries to locate itself in this huge piece of land. This was our second exploration with walls and masses in a residence

The non-parallel walls become the key structure element, and the spaces to be inhabited, becoming masses that puncture through the walls. The formation of these walls create unique experiences throughout the house, as in some spaces the walls diverge while in others they converge. Hence, in some views, one sees a space that is similar to a court, while in other views one sees the walls opening up to a vista. The north side of the masses are more open as compared to the southern ones, hence creating a sense of direction the house faces.
