Refurbishment and extension of an existing home to convert to a dual home. Lower home for aging mother and an upper home for Son and his family incorporating a lot of garden spaces at every. The project demonstrates a transformation of an old single-family house, into a dual family home on a 40ft x 70ft plot.Save this picture!© Manoj SudhakaranSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Manoj SudhakaranThe Neighborhood displays identical row house typology for all its occupants that have undergone constant transformations and yet managed to retain a sense of Dominant Green. Each house shared one common wall with the adjoining house demanding that extensions be made adhering to light and ventilation needs carefully.Save this picture!© Manoj SudhakaranHowever, for the expression, we relied on Casuarina, a construction scaffolding material, which is the most cheaply available wood, for creating an aesthetic of unfinishedness. A contrasting façade element, in times where ‘sleeker the smarter’ mantra rules. The lower house for the aging mother draws upon the nostalgia of her lived years through a mud finished gateway,  while the upper house for her children, poses a duality by staying modernistic in its treatment through partial glass boxlike exterior to the living room.Save this picture!Elevation and Section ASpecial ElementsLiving in a garden feel is continued into the house by careful use of rustic materials and through elements like skylight lit stair courtyard that further leads to an added terrace room for leisure and terrace gardening. The very rustic yet contemporary feel dominates the house by the expression of steel girders that remain natural lacquered and overhangs that express exposed concrete, creating a strong overall blending with Green. Rainwater harvesting is a dominant expressed too.Save this picture!© Manoj SudhakaranProject gallerySee allShow lessTapa Tapa Restaurant / Quarta & ArmandoSelected ProjectsEVOA – Environmental Interpretation Center / Maisr ArquitetosSelected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officeMeeta Jain ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentBengaluruOn FacebookIndiaPublished on October 13, 2019Cite: “Casuarina Fence House / Meeta Jain Architects” 13 Oct 2019.
