The center holds ‘the house’ which is the heart of the residence and the four radiating arms orient the bedrooms or ‘cabanas’. The spaces in between this massing organization are the transitional spaces which define the essence of the overall experience by blurring boundaries between inside and outside. These spaces have been articulated uniquely as decked spaces, open dry courtyards, covered canopies, reflective pools, connecting pathways etc. Save this picture!Ground FloorThe access to the residence is celebrated through a six meter wide pedestrian ramp restricting the vehicular movement into the site. This ramp elicits the sense of distinctiveness and tranquility. The slow approach delays the sense of arrival and serves as a transitional zone between the hustle bustle of urban life and the calmness in solitude. Strategically aligned pigmented concrete landscape walls dictate the movement pattern within the residence in congruence with the position of the existing trees. Save this picture!© Krunal MistryThe ‘house’ and the ‘cabanas’ are the main components of the design. Each of these built components is wrapped with a distinct corten steel portal so that their fragmented spaces get artistically composed as one entity. The portals not only bind the elements of the ‘house’ and the ‘cabanas’ but also act as a common expression throughout the site. They mark the position of these components in the scheme of the “swastika”. The filtration of light from the high canopies of the trees inspired the design of the perforation pattern of the corten steel panels. This helped achieve a contrasting expression of crisp metal surfaces with organic and soft canopies.Save this picture!© Krunal MistrySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Krunal MistryTaking forward the concept of the ‘served and the servant spaces’ each built component is split into two volumes, where in the services are housed in lower volumes and the livable and functional spaces are contained in higher volume.Save this picture!© Krunal Mistry‘The house’edifices public spaces such as living, dining and recreational areas. With the intent to extend the living areas into transitional spaces, there is no formal entry. Instead large openable surfaces in clear glass across the sixteen meter long north facade encourages uninterrupted visual and physical flow between the inside and outside spaces. The presence of a rock face Jaisalmer wall across the open courtyard within ‘the house’ directs the connectivity of these transparent spaces.Save this picture!© Krunal MistryThe ‘cabanas’ are designed to be studio bedrooms organized as an open plan for living, studying and sleeping spaces. The unconventional higher ceiling height of the studio space provides a connection with tree canopies at all times. The presence of the landscape pigmented concrete walls dominates the collage of these materials to create dark and intimate private bath space in a rather more open studio lifestyle.Save this picture!Cabana DiagramSave this picture!House DiagramOn the whole the residence is a demonstration of grandeur of space built with humble materials. The transitional spaces connecting the components of the residence value add to the livability of the design. The raw and rustic natures of finishes respond to the nature of the site thus providing its occupants desired open and free lifestyle.Save this picture!© Krunal MistryProject gallerySee allShow lessCrevice House / ThEPlus ArchitectsSelected ProjectsFloating Veranda / TA architectSelected Projects Share “COPY” Manufacturers: Corten, Nitco Limited, Brazialian Teak, Chickoo Stone, Convow, Hybec, Ritikaa “COPY” 2017 Architects: Reasoning Instincts Architecture Studio Area Area of this architecture project Area:  665 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeReasoning Instincts Architecture StudioOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUmargamIndiaPublished on September 27, 2017Cite: “The Portal House / Reasoning Instincts Architecture Studio” 26 Sep 2017.
