J House, a con­tem­po­rary house de­signed by Spa­ces Ar­chi­[email protected], has a lot of open spa­ces for vis­ual con­nec­tiv­ity between all floors and in­flow of abun­dant nat­u­ral light and air

This house is an ex­pres­sion of In­dian con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture with min­i­mal us­age of ma­te­ri­als, and in the ur­ban con­text, has a strate­gi­cally planned out­ward look­ing in­te­rior space, aptly screened, for pri­vacy Kapil Ag­gar­wal

The house has a dis­tinc­tive style ex­press­ing modern In­dian ar­chi­tec­ture and a min­i­mal ma­te­rial palette. Am­ple use of lou­vers and screens give the house the re­quired pri­vacy. The three-storey house is in­ter­con­nected by triple height spa­ces that al­low light to travel through­out the house. This triple height space is char­ac­ter­ized by rough In­dian Gwalior stones placed in dif­fer­ent sizes, adding a sub­tle tex­ture. The mono­chrome walls are off­set by splashes of bright colours in the art­work and fur­ni­ture.

The el­e­va­tion is driven by the func­tions of the in­te­ri­ors. A few blocks have been carved out from the el­e­va­tion to ac­com­mo­date mul­ti­ple ter­races - semi-open spa­ces cov­ered with wooden lou­vers. Cus­tom-de­signed wooden and metal el­e­ments, a stair­case treated to be­come a dis­tinc­tive fea­ture, front wall pan­elled with large glass panes and shaded us­ing wooden lou­vers, and an ab­stract can­tilevered roof el­e­ment above it, char­ac­ter­ize the de­sign fea­tures.
