Jalan Beach House
Located along the coast of the Arabian Sea, the proposed weekend house aims to blend to into the shallow waters of the bay area. The rectilinear site, with its narrow edge facing the beach required careful planning to make optimum use of its location. The main floor plane of the house is raised to provide a seamless connection with the ocean. The living areas and the pool, open out into the sea facing side, while parking and private areas face the rear edge of the side. The A- hip roof is devised to enable natural ventilation and against the incessant rainfall during the monsoons. The use of local materials and minimal finishes fits into the client’s brief of a suitable weekend home.
