The site is on the outskirts of Ahmedabad with farm lands around. The brief given by the owner was to design a house that would have open spaces within and a greener patch on the outside. The proposed design is a central courtyard house with spaces around it and interspersed by open to sky spaces to connect the central court to the peripheral open spaces. The beautifully designed central court is the soul of The Monolithic House having a sitting deck and bit of plantations surrounded by loose brown mandana kapci. The court has remote operated fabricated roof which is mostly kept open during the day for natural light and ventilation.

The upper floor houses bedroom for the 2 son’s bedroom which spill into terrace and overlooking the east garden. Further it has 1 guest bedroom and 1 kids room. All tied through a semi open passage over looking the central courtyard.
