Architecture Design of Weekend Getaway House

Description About The Project

Weekend Getaway House has been completed by SAK Designs, is an ambitious contemporary dwelling project in Pune, India. This project designed as a home for a family that prefers the raw and rustic experience over a luxury mansion type of dwelling. Even though this home feels rather modern, it is surrounded by the owner’s farm. Also, a common theme in this design is the direct access to the outdoor spaces and proper landscaping around it.

As simple it is, in plan, the architect tried to play with levels in and around the house. Then, creating artificial contours within the landscape, the pool that sits on a level much lower than the house, the cantilevered deck, the floating balconies, and a manmade lake. Indeed, the façade reflects minimalism. While the scale and details of the built-form resonates optimism as one walks down the unpaved contours of the house. Opening the West – facing blue wooden door, one feels welcomed by a low height foyer embraced by an open courtyard.

In addition to this, the courtyard bifurcates private and semi-private areas, which connects to a series of sitting spaces, an open kitchen, a dining, and bedrooms with built-in furniture. Few steps down, and one is amazed to see the beautiful view of the lake with a calm pool and local landscape allowing the house to sit quietly within its context. On the other hand, with the use of few materials like stone, bamboo, and the uneven plastered walls making interesting patterns, this house caters to all the requirements for a comfortable living.

Text by the Architects: “This particular project for us has been not just architecture but an approach in designing experiences or merging nature or nature living. When we want to run away from the city, we want to run away from the feel of it mostly and what better escape can it be than this.”
