A HOME BY THE PARK is a beautiful house with an infinite visual connection to the Park (neighborhood Park outside the Plot).

Nature-loving clients asked us to design a house that resonates with nature and expresses personality throughout the home. We have taken advantage of the Public Park in front of the site to extend the nature beyond their plot. The inclusion of Public Park into our design made the house stay inside nature physically and visually. We connected inhabitants physically with a series of themed Gardens – Front Serene Garden, Central Rain Court, and Private Back Garden, whereas Public park connected visually and seamlessly.

The Front Garden welcomes the guests with a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. To forge a connection between the park and the garden, it has been raised to a level where the Park and the Garden form one vast Visual Greenscape. Though these spaces are separated, they are connected visually.

The visual connection is carried along to the Central Rain Court which is strategically placed at the center of the house. This double height Lung space provides a good connect with the front garden to the Public park. The collection of diverse plants and the fresh water aquarium along with diffused light from the court forms its own Microclimate. The aquarium is constantly engaged by a sheet waterfall which burbles, setting a serene mood through the house.

All bedrooms open to either the front garden or view of the Park, yet they are designed as private enclosures. The Parents Master Suite opens to the rear garden on the south-west as per the principles of Vastu. The upper balcony bridged to the family room opens out to the view of the Park.
The Front Garden, 20ftX30ft in size, invokes the sense of serene and calmness when you enter the house. Front garden and the Park, that seamlessly camouflaged. With the raised Garden, the public and the private spaces are separated, yet they are connected visually.

The Rain Court, in Centre of the House, is a double-height Lung space, serene light well for family and it connects all Living/Common spaces at all levels. The open-to-sky Central Rain Court brings in diffused light from the double-height enclosure creates the microclimate that brings the essence of a home. The Court changes with seasons, with its variety of flowering plants and shrubs. The water body and water sheet fall fountains with the Fresh Water Aquarium are a visual treat. The tree at the Rain Court binds the space with spatial volumes. The external security envelope ensures that the internal Rain court’s windows are grill-free.

Rear Private Garden

All the Bedrooms are Private and open to outdoor gardens or view of the Park. The Parents Master Bedroom opens to the Rear garden on SW as per Vastu.


  1. Being outside in nature provides numerous health benefits, and when the sun shines, it is simple to enjoy the outdoors and relax in our gardens. But creative design with a wonderful garden view allows us to enjoy our outside spaces and vistas of nature regardless of the weather. This might be as simple as moving furniture to make a window seat in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. Alternatively, use the opportunity of a home remodelling to seriously consider how a garden view may be framed. Calgary handyman can help with all your home renovation needs.
