The Edge

The topography of the site primarily decided the design development of this 3000sqft residence in Calicut, Kerala, India.

The plot had two distinct levels formed out of a previous excavation on a laterite valley. The form was conceived in such a way that excavation was kept minimum and all the existing trees were maintained to resist soil erosion.

The idea of the elliptically shaped driveway played a significant role on the form. Care was given to utilize the view to the valley from all the rooms.
