The Lucknow Project – A Modern Mansion In Disguise

Four buildings were purchased in Lucknow city to create one whole plot for a single new luxury home. The build site is situated along a busy arterial road, and neighboured on three sides by a tightly packed development of private homes. Therefore, a large home would have seemed out of place, or perhaps even brash. To combat this, Sanjay Puri Architects broke this bespoke home design into pieces: Split living spaces and sleeping volumes were imagined, to cut channels to a large courtyard for a blissful through-breeze. Decorative screens based on traditional 'chikan' embroidery were installed to visually fragment the modern home exterior further, and serve purpose in shading the interior from the searing sun.
