Architecture Design of Flying House

Description About The Project

Flying House designed by Studio LAB is a beautifully designed home with the unique shape of exterior. This house laid out along a 75 m long North – South axis facing the valley view. Two distinct East – facing building volumes separated by the infinity pool and garden.

In this house, the single level North volume houses the common social spaces and the two level south block have private bedrooms with decks. The two distinct volumes connected by a continuous deck that wraps itself around the periphery of the house. Also, large glazed doors slide away to connect all the internal social spaces to the decks and pool. In addition to this, the house built for the open plan social spaces to open up to the context of the natural landscape.

The roof of the lower social spaces lifts up to fold over the two-story bedroom block. The roof is designed to protect from the long monsoon rains and strong winds. Indeed, the structure of the house expressed and bare. Exposed concrete columns, exposed brick, and metal truss structures give a raw and elemental feel. Also, textured limestone flooring connects all the spaces of the house with little surprises embedded in the stone floor.

The form of the roof creates a crown line on the ridge, echoing the recognizable silhouette of the ghats. The folded metal roof planes float above the two distinct blocks of the Flying House.
Large cantilevers of this Flying House give shelter to outdoor decks.

The Flying House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: Set on the ridgeline of the Sahyadri hills, this holiday home overlooks the dramatic western ghats. This linear Flying House is laid out along a 75 m long north-south axis facing the valley view. The 75 m long solid western wall is clad in copper slate stone that shimmers in the western setting sun. The robust wall protects the house from the westerly winds and rain; making the eastern facing decks habitable all year round. Two distinct east-facing building volumes are separated by the infinity pool and garden.
