parallel planes house
The site located in Talegaon, Pune, overlooking the Indrayani River is spread over an area of around 14 acres on which the 4000sq.ft house is situated. The primary aim while designing this house was to provide maximum benefits of the river view while using the sloping topography of the land to its advantage. These concerns paved way for this structure to be designed with a concept of ‘Parallel walls’ with all the functional spaces positioned between them. Four such parallel walls cut through the slopes on the site perpendicularly orienting the entire house in the North – South direction, facing the river. As a result all the spaces inside enjoy panoramic views of the river and the valley beyond. The house was holistically completed in 2011.
