Villa Agra

Building Giants

An extremely challenging design brief created an opportunity to work around the basic functionalities and requirements of a client in a location where time, energy, money and exposure were unlimited. Agra is an upcoming Tier 2 town, with restrained access to resources; one could dare to dream an idea and it stood a good chance of converting itself to reality. Through this project, Archohm focuses on innovation and fresh design to meet new urban challenges, while making optimum utilization of space and resources.

A tight site in an eminent neighborhood of private residences results in a distinct skyline and vocabulary. The façade is designed to establish a blank, bold and clean statement, using it as a tool to express style, while respecting the privacy of the owners and confronting the design typology of front gardens and glass.

The house is conceived as a complex composition of interconnected spaces that flow into each other. A play of views is developed through fenestrations that are placed strategically in the form of north lights, top lights and structural glazing. An introverted layout is planned with family living and dining spaces opening into a central courtyard that lends controlled light and views into this private residence. Formal entertainment spaces on one side and private sleeping zone on the other define and shade the courtyard.
