Purasaivakkam HB2. Chennai, India
Purasaivakkam HB2 House is organized in two blocks with two different programs: private house and semi-public office. The approximate area is 4300 sq.ft. and it is distributed in three levels. Purasaivakkam House is located in an exclusive neighborhood of Chennai in Southern India. The House responds to the broad and diverse functional needs of the client, a respected accountant who needs a direct connection between his home and his main office.
As a consequence of these requirements, the house is divided in two different blocks that are joined at the center by a staircase connecting all levels of the building and inter-relating the two blocks in a single line. The housing unit, made mainly of concrete and glass, opens fully to the outer space while the office has suitable light for working purposes thanks to two side-walls in translucent U-glass.
