A young couple approached us, with the dream of living around a courtyard. And so we stacked all their spatial requirements along a strong central axis, with a courtyard that functions as the lungs of this indoor outdoor house. Almost every room on all levels overlooks what has been planned as a lush green pocket.

The clients' love for patterns in brickwork has long been cherished for its durability and timeless appeal. They wanted bricks to serve as a nod to architectural heritage, creating a sense of connection to the past. So when we combine them with intricate patterns, these walls become true works of art that tell stories of craftsmanship and creativity.
