The house is divided into four floors with the focus on spatial planning. The ground level contains an office space, parking area and a multi-purpose space along with a kitchen designed to transition seamlessly into the garden space.

The first floor is dedicated to the family with all private spaces like the kitchen, dining and living spaces located there. The second floor is designed to be completely private with the bedrooms located there. The stairs continue up to a third floor that provides access to the entertainment zone that houses a home theatre, gym and a roof garden.

Sections have been kept simple across floors. Upper floors have been designed to accommodate large open spaces to ensure daylighting has been taken care of.

Addition of skylights and double height spaces makes the interiors more stylish with a hint of sophistication. It also ensures that each space receives ample amount of light and ventilation.

The terrace roof is one of the highlights of the building, it has a fluidic design with the primary element being steel.

The facade design is minimalistic with plaster finish horizontal grooves incorporated along with vertical wooden slats to give a modern look to the built form. The voids within the built form lend it character in the form of fenestration and accommodates features that are both aesthetic and functional.
