B-99 House Design by DADA and Partners, in Gurgaon, India

June 24, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Designed by DADA and Partners, located in Gurgaon, India.
The courtyard that forms the center of the house faces south and is overlooked by living and bedroom areas on the ground and first floors. Adjacent to the courtyard is a steel staircase connecting the upper floors. On the ground and first floors, rooms at front and rear are connected by ‘bridge-like’ spaces running along the courtyard. Also running in parallel is a two feet deep wall that at places acts as a shading device for large windows or incorporates built-in timber benches overlooking the open courts.
