Rolling Stones Estate
A group of 5 friends serendipitously came together a when a beautiful site in the Nandi hill range fell into their laps. This 5 acre plot is unique in its location with a feel of being ‘nestled’ within hills and a distant horizon. The sacred Nandi drop forms a large part of the panorama and offers the place its holy energy. A slope of about 35 degrees and a scatter of rocks set the tone for the built type to emerge.
It was decided to keep the houses as compact as possible in footprint, allowing spaces to be organized vertically, to experience the shifting perspective vision this dynamic site had to offer.
The lower space is a hollowed out open verandah, conceived as semi-public in nature and works well to interact with the helper community and large crowds, keeping the private spaces at higher levels undisturbed.

SANDEEP’S WEEKEND HOUSE
In keeping with the compact footprint, hovering over concept, this house is an added expression of a cantilevered living room, again allowing a unique underbelly entrance plaza to the house replete with multiple use possibilities of adventurous living in landscape.
REDDY’S HOLIDAY HOME
A HOLIDAY HOME vertically organized volumetrically, with a minimal footprint, allowing a hovering over expression and creating a lower space for multiple use and get-togethers keeping living areas private.
BALI’S PEACE SANCTUARY
This third hovering holiday differs from the other 2 in being an assemblage of 3 pavilion boxes. A central finely crafted staircase ascends upward to the sleeping areas from the living plane.
