Scope
Architecture design and top supervision
This single family house was designed for flexibility with a construction methodology that had to be both time and cost effective. Hence, the idea of using load bearing walls with cement precast beams, slabs and lightweight cement board internal partitions. These elements have been made a part of the exterior and the interior aesthetics. The bold green precast beams have been juxtaposed against the textured grey plaster in the exterior. The exposed T-beams in the interior of the house celebrate the construction methodology and the terracotta/wood flooring, along with light painted walls, give the interior spaces a warmth and character.
