Architecture Design of The Civil Engineer House
Description About The Project
The Civil Engineer House designed by LID Architecture is a stunning home, sits on a 40’ x 60’ rectangular site facing North. This house extracted from others in engineering and architectural prospects. Since the site situated in a sub-tropical area where the temperature difference between low to high is around 12°c (28° – 40°). In order to harvest the coolness during the night-time, large openings have been proposed at the ground and first floor roof levels with ventilators at the double height areas to let out the hot air during daytime as it rises up due to the stack effect and helps in constant ingress of fresh air into the building.
In order to retain the absorbed coolness during the nighttime, the designer has avoided having windows at the outer periphery, during the daytime, the temperature inside the house is 8°c cooler than outside across all seasons. The Island kitchen and exposed concrete staircase are visually appealing.
Besides, customized steel fins deliberately designed to obstruct any direct view from the outside and provide minimal vision from inside to the out. Hence, the outside noise level reduced due to the design pattern of the steel fins. The volcanic ash layer plastered over the all exposed walls including the rooftop, recycled furnace brick flooring laid in the car park to avoid heat radiation. Also, entire rainwater harvested in the sump with a measuring scale.

Text by the Architects: The client is a civil engineer with an in-depth knowledge of construction techniques and energy modulation and has constructed more than 4000 houses in this region. We gathered the inputs from the client and developed a concept that gave maximum comfort from an energy efficiency perspective. In the shuttle wise white boxes with customized steel fins on the exterior, an arithmetic representation of the house number inscribed on a stainless steel rotating cube. Also, the House no.26 has been cut out on the front floating slab to create a beautiful night view projection. Creating a minimal, Unconventional and Captivating Elevation.
