Architecture Studio / Architecture Studio

The project is a home studio for architect couple. Both practicing architects and share the passion for architecture, music and painting. The site has an extent of 3 cents and has marshy soil condition. Space needed to be flexible and work as a workspace, place to practice music and discussion space.  Designed needed to be compact and modern in its material and construction. The budget was a major concern along with construction time. Initially our idea was to have separate space for music & architecture. The triangular profile of the design comes from attic, a space that doesn?t requires walls thus reducing the need for a heavy foundation and thus cost. The whole space is divided into two levels ground floor and attic level. Which act as workspace and leisure respectively.

Conceptual Sketch

Traditional Architecture of Kerala
The characteristic regional expression of Kerala architecture results from the geographical, climatic and historic factors. The most distinctive visual form of Kerala architecture is the long, steep sloping roof built to protect the house?s walls and to withstand the heavy monsoon, normally laid with tiles supported on a roof frame made of hard wood and timber. Structurally the roof frame was supported on the pillars on walls erected on a plinth raised from the ground for protection against dampness and insects in the tropical climate. Gable windows were evolved at the two ends to provide attic ventilation when ceiling was incorporated for the room spaces.
