Largely developed by private financiers, the emerging landscape of Vasant Vihar has little coherence in architectural intent. Trends change every five to seven years and design intents are abandoned with the same pace as they were adopted. On a typical street, one might find a 15 year old classical design next to a 10 year old contemporary design and a 2 year old Palladian Villa.

Location:                Vasant Vihar, New Delhi

 

Typology:                Residence 

 

 

Area:                      800 Sq. Yards

 

Principal Architect:  Amit Khanna

 

Completion Date:     2020

Within this landscape of conflicting context, lay an aging building on a site of 350 Sq.Mts. The owners wanted to rebuild to elicit maximum benefit of the area offered by new regulations. This would not only allow the owners more space, but also to reaffirm the status of the property as a family home for the next generation.

 

Six apartments were planned, laid over 4 floors. Additionally, four workspaces were created in the basement, along with dedicated car parking for eight cars. The building was designed to provide common amenities, but complete privacy to the occupants from one another. To achieve this, a common entrance lobby on the ground floor provides access from multiple access points to the main stair and elevator.
