The house is considered as a nano resort in a compact urban setting of a row house. The Glass walls accentuates the pool presence from the lower living level. It act as a trigger to make one indulge into itself.
The challenges were to achieve something like this in a tight small urban plot of 500 sq yard of row house. A stand luxury villa is squeezed and stalked and packed into a small urban home.
The installation and transport of wall was critical due to nature of application as glass would not withstand the pressure. So that was done by non breakable Acrylic. This installation is very few in my country.
