Architecture Design of Banyan Tree House

Description About The Project

Banyan Tree House designed by Tales of Design studio, located in Mampully is an elegant home for a young family. In this house, spaces positioned to establish visual connection between themselves and landscape without compromising privacy.

Three bedroom house is a single storey-ed structure with a Mezzanine floor and has a built-up area of 2000sqft. Neighbourhood faces rising water levels during peak monsoons due to its close proximity to the river. So as a precaution built spaces positioned on the highest point on the elevated site. Hence, this helped in creating a large sloping front yard, a buffer zone with fruit and flower bearing native vegetation to protect the house sound and dust from on road traffic.

Once insides, doors, windows, brick jali, porotherm air vents and skylights strategically placed to enhance the indoor comfort level through cross ventilation, stack effect and natural lighting. Also, Geometrical shapes carefully rendered into various elements of the design, thus creating a distinct design language. In addition to this, Southern side of the house has fewer openings and high sill windows to counter solar heat gain. Full height windows are mostly oriented towards north to gain more indirect natural light in interiors.
