“Light ; An intangible element creates paradigm shift in the character of space, catalyzing the essence of tranquility in ARCHITECTURE” Designed for a young couple, reflecting the dynamics aroused between the extroverted and introverted nature of one’s self.
CASA LUX is conceived as a space of dramatic light located in one of the older part of Tumkur .The road is on the eastern side and it also forms the longer edge of the site. Surroundings consist of a coconut grove located on northern edge of the site. The dwelling unit is aimed to respond to the requirement of the client with formal and spatial solutions. The efforts are made to attain the spatial quality.
The built form is conceptualized from a triad namely surfaces, openings and cubes. The circulation is accommodated through skylights and landscape. Attempts are made to blend together the site and the built form, incorporate the landscape into the built form, and make use of every bit of the site. The interior extends into the exterior and the entire site is transformed into a space as precisely assembled as craft work.
The languages arrived allows for a clear reading of the archetypal elements of solid, void and planes with the use of devices such as screens and light courts. The vocabulary caters for the specific programme and specific lifestyle and for rudimentary concerns for comfort and shelter.
