Pool House (Residential) by Rudraksh Charan
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Inspiration- “PEBBLE IN THE GRASS” Response to the context in terms of the existing architecture:- a post modern building constructed in exposed concrete about 20 years old.
Creativity
It was primarily an extension of the existing house to accommodate a home theater, lounge, pool, changing room, a gym and addition of two suites with dressers and toilets Building is like an object or a sculpture not bound by any classical archetypal or conventional construction system. The form is just like a natural peal from the landscape. The pool house is overlooking the green, its perched, the construction system is shell based.
Design Challenges
The entire building is an example of minimalism, every unwanted thing is either concealed / embedded or invisible:- This required extreme Detailing at a principal level.
Production Technology
The entire building is an example of minimalism, every unwanted thing is either concealed / embedded or invisible:- This required extreme Detailing at a principal level :Designing shuttering to hold an inclined RCC wall weighing 8.5 Tons: we made a proper unit like a 3D frame to hold the weight of concrete, Getting fair faced concrete good enough to be able to handle polishing on the floor. Designing wooden frames in a curved section with wooden doors surrounded by glass on all sides: this was an experiment where we developed a freestanding wooden door frame. The toilet is finished in singular in-situ terrazzo, we had to get masons from eastern UP who work on doubly curved terrazzo surfaces.
