Courtyard House, Bangalore

The building sits across a large garden dividing and engaging the landscape.  The high water table allows the plinth of the building to be raised onto elevated decks.  The ground floor is open to views through the building where as the upper floors engage the sky through rooflights.  The circulation between the two levels is engaged through a courtyard that captures landscape and sky.  The thinness of the building is a response to maximizing its interface with the garden.
