Patel Residence India

  • New construction of a private residence
  • Ahmedabad, India

House of generations

Living together with as much privacy as possible – that was the guiding theme in planning the residence for an extended Indian family in Ahmedabad. In order to create an intimate garden despite the high neighbouring structures, buildings surround an interior courtyard. Immediately adjoining are the living quarters of the parents and grandparents, whose façades can be opened up. From the outside, the building has a rectilinear appearance, with movable shades that span the height of the rooms. All those dwelling in the house have their own entrances.
