11 K Vaks Week End House by Ketan Jawdekar

Home > Winners > #35657


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
11 K Vaks

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Week End House

INSPIRATION:
Located as it is amidst the rice farms all around, the inspiration for this home, very naturally came from the surrounding paddy fields. The entire house and its landscaping were designed following the principal of Less is More. And this also reflects the lifestyle and preference of the client. Also, the topography of the land became a major driving force on how the design evolved.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Simple, straight and elegant spaces have been created along horizontal planes with the highlight on split levels. Taking advantage of the natural contours, three distinct levels have been created for the house. Also the rainwater harvesting and underground water storage have been successfully connected to the natural ground water here.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The spectacular view of the Khadakwasla backwaters is hidden from the gates till one reaches the living area which opens up to the panoramic sight beyond. Spaces opening to the pool create an effect of continuing the backwaters inside. The open plan of the house allows plenty of spaces that are visually connected to each other. The entry level has the porch, living, dining, open kitchen, kids room and the pool deck, master bedroom is at the upper level and the mothers room is at a lower level.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project started in 2013 and got finished in 2014 and is located on the outskirts hills of Pune an IT hub of western India.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Taking advantage of sloping site a technique of cutting and filling was used where ever necessary. the natural contours were used to create different levels in arranging the rooms. Structure is a RCC frame structure. Central courtyard acts as a vent chute for better ventilation.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The house is built on 1 Acre of land. Total built up area is 450 square meters.

TAGS:
week end house, villa, bungalow, contemporary house, house, straight line architecture.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Since it is a sloping land, the topography was used to an advantage by drawing inspiration from the step fields one commonly sees for paddy cultivation. Following the creed of Less is more, different levels have been created for the different areas in the house.

CHALLENGE:
The project started out with a few challenges that were also its biggest advantage. The sloping topography, while being a construction trial, was an architect’s delight as it gave us the opportunity to experiment with the design. Another challenge was the brief from the client that the house should not be seen from the road. Major compulsions were to plant 450 trees on the land, and create a home for three generations of the family.
