House in Coonoor
Envisioned as a solid with a carved out central courtyard, the House in Coonoor is located on a sloping site opening out to the hilly landscape. Within a site populated with wild vegetation, the courtyard facilitates a secret garden – capturing a space of delight and changing time. The schema thus encourages the users to interact with more than one kind of landscape.
The spaces are designed with a grid of 4.8m x 4.8m in plan. The surfaces are treated without breaking the grid – with private spaces enclosed in walls and public spaces encased in glass.
