At every point in the house, one can feel the presence of the five elements of nature: water, air, earth, fire, space. The house is spread along the East West direction, facing North. The spaces in this house flow and merge with each other, courtesy of the two level open to sky courtyard with a water body – ‘Totti’, open kitchen and dining with a double height. There are three bedrooms and a drawing room, around the courtyard, which helps in cross ventilation. It has three skylights – one above the courtyard, and the others above the kitchen and verandah towards east. The first floor consists of two bedrooms with terraces and balconies.
