A house planned in a tight plot with only the minimum set backs left open, required landscaping and interior design. Given the narrow spaces left, the concept was done trying to give as much a feeling of a big garden. The entrance area has a cascade from a spout, a little dry garden and a sprinkling of plants. The East part has an elevated clear fish and lily pond along the length of the verandah with very lush vegetation around. Granite benches, boulders and decorative panels in the wall niches complete the outdoor feeling. The entire compound wall is cladded with pink sandstone in a pattern with joints of varying sizes.
