The design concept was to modernize the architecture as well as interiors keeping in mind sustainability and passive design while considering the hot and humid temperature of Nellore. Narrow windows with large openings over north and the white paint around the house helps to control heat gain while playing with shadows. Contrasting the built-up mini garden plays the role of reducing the heat island effect.
Providing a contrast through façade, by including sliding foldable aluminum fins extending till terrace in order to maintain privacy and contain the view. While vastu played an important role in zoning, planning and redefining the entire house, the grandparents' master bedroom fell in the south west direction over the ground floor along with formal living, kitchen and dining.
Along with an informal sitting area the first floor resides in the bedroom of son, daughter and guests. The gym, a home theater to serve parties, falls under the second floor. Hence each floor holds different functions and meaning over the section.
