Sapovilla 116, a villa with a Sapodilla, is an eclectic private residence borne out of intergenerational needs and sensitivities of the extended family.
Located in Raj Nagar, Uttar Pradesh, set on a 1600 square yards site, the first challenge of the project was to find a balance between the built and the existing green areas and, site the building in a way to harmonize this landscape with family living. Critical to the site design process was the preservation of umpteen Sapodilla and Ashoka trees on the site, their integration into the outdoor family experience and maximizing views from interior spaces.
The building exterior is intentionally subdued in color and texture, allowing the lush natural surroundings to take precedence. The stepped massing is driven by maximising sight lines to the greens, solar orientation and carving out multi level distributed terraces.
