Cubic Volumes

The Cuboid House has been designed by Amit Khanna Design Associates with Amit Khanna in the lead. Knowing they had to create something different yet serviceably aesthetic, the designers discarded the commercialised approach to using up the complete permissible envelope and embellishing peripheral walls with trend factors. An ingenuous amalgamation of two local stones ensures a tantalising combination of shades of grey and sandy brown. The stones used not only elegantly emphasise the cubic volumes of a modern home in New Delhi but also protect it from the fierce climate. Bedecked to affirm elementary yet precise rules of spatial sequences structured around minimal architectural events, the design strength of Cuboid House lies in its imperceptible variation of light and shadow across a series of decks.
