Home > Winners > #53073


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Pool House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration- “PEBBLE IN THE GRASS” Response to the context in terms of the existing architecture:- a post modern building constructed in exposed concrete about 20 years old.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It was primarily an extension of the existing house to accommodate a home theater, lounge, pool, changing room, a gym and addition of two suites with dressers and toilets Building is like an object or a sculpture not bound by any classical archetypal or conventional construction system. The form is just like a natural peal from the landscape. The pool house is overlooking the green, its perched, the construction system is shell based.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It's an all concrete shell construction, no beams, no columns just a wrapping shell in concrete. The floor is the same concrete polished. It has no plaster / paint / waterproofing or finishing render. The interiors a bare with just a single block cladded in wood internally and externally housing a toilet and a pantry. The toilet is finished in terrazzo cast in-situ, the concrete used is a designed mix without any artificial pigments and enhancers. We wanted the concrete to breathe and weather naturally.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2012 in New Delhi and ended in January 2015

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The entire building is an example of minimalism, every unwanted thing is either concealed / embedded or invisible:- This required extreme Detailing at a principal level :Designing shuttering to hold an inclined RCC wall weighing 8.5 Tons: we made a proper unit like a 3D frame to hold the weight of concrete, Getting fair faced concrete good enough to be able to handle polishing on the floor. Designing wooden frames in a curved section with wooden doors surrounded by glass on all sides: this was an experiment where we developed a freestanding wooden door frame. The toilet is finished in singular in-situ terrazzo, we had to get masons from eastern UP who work on doubly curved terrazzo surfaces.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
4500 sq ft of total built up area, in which the home theater and lounge of 2000 sq ft, the changing room and gym in 600 sq ft and 1250 sq ft for two suites with dresser and toilets.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Building is like an object / a sculpture not bound by any classical archetypal or conventional construction system. The form is just like a natural peal from the landscape, The pool house is overlooking the green, its perched, the construction system is shell based so cantilevering the block was not a challenge, imagine the unit to be like a sliced section of a pipe its so strong in it self due to prestress that minor stresses and strains are inconsequential. In theory the building had to be a very bold statement for it to read as an object, so we decided to keep it very singular in its form and finish. The softening of its edges and the tilt were a result of trying to blend this stark object with the scape, imagine a lone pebble in the grass. It looks distinct / beautiful and yet blends in.• In order to align with the architectural vocabulary the interior design had to be singular as well. The wooden paneling forms a floating media unit completely concealing all the devices and screen, this how ever is reciprocated with a curved panel on the other side defining the seating space with the island bar.

CHALLENGE:
The entire building is an example of minimalism, every unwanted thing is either concealed / embedded or invisible:- This required extreme Detailing at a principal level.
