Kelly House. Chennai, India
The Kelly House, located on a 4720 sq. ft. plot in the heart of Chennai city, has about 6200 sq. ft. arranged over three floors. The ground floor has service areas, a foyer, and parking space.
Alongside the House, there are an entrance hall, a leisure space, and a fitness center, which open toward the yard. The spaces of this main floor are organized in a volume that cantilevers over this outside yard area, providing the most interesting views of the south of the plot, where most of the outside vegetation is located.
The configuration of the various areas of the house correspond to the vastu philosophy that not only mark the relationship between the rooms and the orientation of the main spaces of the house, but also search for the best views and the best orientations weather-wise for each room. All of the main spaces of the villa establish a dialogue with the yard, which becomes the central element of the house.
