Casa Rojo at Chennai by Benny Kuriakose

The essence of the building was to be a space which would exemplify the feeling of well-being and tranquility. It was to be a place where one could work, play or socialize without disturbing the harmony of the different elements encompassed within the space. The plan of the house incorporated the existing orchard. The view from the gate is of the main house and Ranjeet’s office to the left. Although the plot is long and narrow, the plan has taken care to position the house in such a way that it overcomes any feeling of constriction and at the same time, provides a spacious backyard.

A residence with a lake view, built of random rubble masonry left exposed in the exterior, and plastered and painted white in the interior. The timber finished door and window frames is a striking contrast to the walls. In the elevation, the little white windows and the and the sloping roof, one over the other, makes the residence more interesting. There is a timber deck in the first floor, overlooking the lake.
