Kamat & Rozario Architecture is a Bangalore-based multi-disciplinary firm, specializing in interior designs and architecture designs a courtyard house with giant wood louvers in the front façade for their recent project. The plot was 40 feet wide and 75 feet deep. This project is an attempt to maximize the dialogue with the outdoors as you navigate the depth of the plot. Therefore, it was imperative to interrupt the plot depth with punctuation marks of sunshine and air.

Upon entrance, you walk through a small garden and move on to the open living and dining, which is the heart of the house. As you arrive here, you see that you are flanked by an internal courtyard on the side and a small urban garden on the left.
The internal courtyard partners up with the main stair as it culminates into a crown, letting in dappled light and fresh air. Consequently, the center of the first floor where there is a balcony, lets in the urban garden and permeates light into the bedroom.
The designers create massing of the building in such a way that gradually steps up from the roadside. Talking about the first floor, the daughter’s bedroom steps out into a large open terrace overlooking the street on the north side, whereas, the other bedroom overlooks the entry garden, where there is a wooden operable screen the highlighting element that acts as a playful substitute for a curtain for the first-floor façade.
The lady of the house hails from Punjab, therefor, the triangular motifs seen through different elements of the house are a subtle reference to the beautiful Punjabi folk embroidery known as phulkari, which she wears with great pride!
