The house is ideally located on a large plot surrounded by greenery. Large openings bring in the exterior into the house. The juxtaposition of materials like stone and fundermax or stone with large glass panels give the exterior of the house its identity. An artist was specifically called to design the feature wall which stands tall besides the swimming pool and the Buddha statue within the home.
The square form translates into clean straight lines, while the large openings connect the interiors with the surrounding landscape. Close attention to structural design ensures large column free spans. The two existing coconut trees act as an archway to the entrance of the house. Luxury is shown through expansive spaces. Upon entering the house the double volume space is revealed which is only a part of the living area culminating in a 10 feet high Buddha structure on the upper floor. The living room is completely open to the expansive green views through large sliding glass windows. The pool area is shaded by the pergola framing at the upper level thus keeping the interiors cool in the hot and dry climate of Hyderabad.
The tactile interplay between the wooden, marble and varied exterior flooring, gives the house an all-around feeling. The use of wood finishes in the façade, windows and pool deck area create the warmth needed in the stark contemporary white and glass façade. The stamped concrete stucco mural of leaves which is the backdrop of the pool is a reflection of the expansive trees and plants in the garden. The house is designed to have open and clear circulation making it interactive, more spacious, keeping the house more arid to combat the hot climate of the region.
The floor to ceiling heights are 14 Feet. This is done not only to bring in a sense of scale but also high ceilings translate to cooler temperature indoors. The back drop of the pool is a floral pattern stamped concrete feature wall done by an artist. The bedrooms opens out to a frame of thick tropical greenery, making the lifestyle one with the nature. The dining area snuggly knit in between an open Italian kitchen, outdoor patio and the living room. All the bed rooms are designed to be on the periphery of the building to bring in ample sunlight and also have a view to gaze.
The design divides the functions of the house unbiasedly among the two floors to make sure it engages entirely family on both of them. The ground floor houses common spaces like foyer /lobby, public living, swimming pool, dining open breakfast area, Italian kitchen wet kitchen, utility/ store, bar area and pool change rooms, along with the private space of master bedroom containing a walk-in wardrobe and a plush bathroom. Furthermore the upper floor also houses private living space, two bedrooms with walk-in closets and toilets, and common spaces like home theatre, gymnasium, Pooja and a study. The two floors are connected by a single stringer beam open riser staircase. 
This house, surprisingly on a very chaotic neighbourhood gives a feeling of seclusion and a tranquil experience, similar to the countryside, bestowed with generous greenery that creates a microclimate at this site and reduces the temperature of the surrounding comparatively. The view from the outdoor Alfresco breakfast area is serene greenscapes on one side and the double height living room with a clear sight of the Buddha statue hoisted ten feet high, on the other. The floor to ceiling windows creates a luxurious volume to live in which also connects the interior and exterior seamlessly. The mix of materials like fundermax, concrete and glass gives the house a contemporary look from the outside.
