Zero Maintenance & Sustainable

Cityspace’82 Architects designs a house with robust attributes and voluminous light-filled living spaces

house with robust attributes and voluminous light-filled living spaces

The design and construction of this house is completely based on the zero maintenance and eco-friendly design concept. The boundary wall is treated with dry stone cladding delineating a glamorous detail where the slab was scooped out to boast stellar like profiles, giving an illusion of bent stones. The entrance gate – as one of the most utilized elements - is installed in porcelain, a scratch-resist and water and termite proof medium, aiding to the longevity and zero-maintenance characteristics of the house. The driveway has an array of integrated directional lighting which also act as mood lighting at night.

A façade reflects the nature of an architecture project. It is the most recognizable and acknowledged feature of a structure that becomes a part of the collective imagery. It also evinces an era or a period of architecture for future generations and demands as much aesthetic quality as the interiors. A well-designed building exterior exhibits a unique identity while also enabling optimum interior functioning as it shields the interiors from the external elements

The facade was installed by omitting smaller cubes from the bigger ones providing the building with openings and punctures that allow natural light to touch every corner of the house. A terrace in the form of a cantilever renders a floating powder-coated aluminium web and forms a dramatic feature. The cantilever is designed to be 3m wide to accommodate small social gatherings.

The apparent convergence of the building with the sky was achieved by Fibre Optics lighting integrated with the white painted wall on the front facade which grants it a glistening effect of twinkling stars with different intensities. In fact, this residence is the first in India to have fibre optics in the facade. The house can be lit with planter lights, fibre optics, and lights from art installations via a single control.
