Scope
Residential
Located on a sloping site, the design for the AHSAN SALEEM residence resulted in a split level house with private spaces looking into the multiple courtyards. These strategically placed courtyards with water bodies act as pockets, encouraging the flow of natural air and a cool breeze which enter the habitable space. Large stone volumes emphasize the permanence of the house while floating slab projections aid in scaling down the massing. To achieve a resort like ambiance; natural materials such as stone and wood have been used, while the landscape pockets and punctures in the architectural forms bring in indirect light in the 3-storied split level  house.
