House 43

Project Year:2021

Typology: Residential 

Area: 6125 Sft.

Location: Islamabad

House is based on a footprint of 60’X90’. The client’s brief was to incorporate light and ventilation as a basic concept, with a central living room connecting its surroundings. Maintaining the existing flora of the plot, central space is scooped for a seating side deck facing a mango tree. The front of the house is lined with a double glazed 14’ high window which holds a living room space on the first floor meanwhile a metal grid structure holds a layer of plantation for reducing direct sunlight in summers. The main custom 12’-6” door opens up into a well-lit entrance foyer looking over a small metal grid patio.
