House On A Tea Slope

This weekend home on a three acre tea slope, overlooks the beautiful valley between Kotagiri & Coonoor.
The client wished to have semi-open spaces to enjoy the unique, ever-changing climate of the hills as well as the spectacular views.
The entrance & services are located off the higher slope on the rear. This allows for untrammeled views of the valley from all the living spaces & bedrooms. The french windows play a vital role by offering a variety of experiences, relating the indoors to the landscape.
The ‘flat-slab’ construction technique is used here to avoid beams & to insulate from the cold. Exterior walls have cavities to insulate the interiors & protect the windows from the rain.
