These two stunning modern Indian villas, created by architect Moriq, each feature peaceful courtyard designs within them. One has a combination of green space and a multi textured floor, which acts as a border of privacy between the entryway to the home and the main family living area. The second features a pivotal water body that greets the family when they come home, and welcomes in guests. A connective bridge between living volumes on the the first floor overlooks the reflection pool and lawn, and a projector screen that provides outdoor entertainment. The two tours also feature impressive interior spaces that are steeped in contemporary elegant luxury.

The projection wall can be viewed from various points in the house, including a bridge that connects both the houses. | 21 |.

The main feature of the home is the modern courtyard design that lies between the front yard and the living room. Because this is a north facing plot by vaastu principles, the living space had to be placed to the north east side. Any entry from the north east side would encroach on the family’s privacy, so the interior courtyard between the front garden and the lounge was introduced as a buffer zone. | 5 |.

A combination of simplicity and understated luxury shapes the home, and allows the family to remain grounded and be close to nature. It is a direct translation of the personality of the well travelled and elegant couple. | 3 |.
