The owner’s initial brief for the new house included a preference to avoid a rigid box formation, a mention of life style that was mostly outdoors, and a dwelling that would be a container for collection of artifacts, paintings, Persian rugs, books and ancestral furniture. The proposed design weaves and integrates the above concerns.

The fluid curvilinear formation is reinterpretation of imagery of old ancestral house and also to reiterate the existing natural formation on the site. The house bends to allow views of the lily pond and simultaneously engenders an element of surprise in the experience of interior space.
