AT A GLANCE
Area20 Acres, 58 Villas
The beauty of the villa lies in the simplicity of its design. The concept evolved as a way to seamlessly merge the structure with the surrounding rural character whilst still providing all the comforts of contemporary living. The underlying premise was to maximize – space, ventilation, and natural light and promote the regional building materials and practices. The dual-level plan fits seamlessly into the contoured hillside while providing uninterrupted vistas of the river meandering below.
The public and private spaces are segregated to mirror a resort-style feel of being in the midst of nature versus a conventional compact plan. The common living areas are situated at the highest level of the site and open out to a wrap-around deck and an infinity pool. The individual sleeping areas are separated from the public spaces by a large expanse of open garden areas. Each room has a private dressing and bath area and opens out into its own private garden.
The Gable celebrates the local architecture form. The spaces are woven around the end user as he walks through the house, over and under.
