House With A Wall Of Light

Gurjit Singh Matharoo


This home has a classic touch by Gurjit Singh Matharoo that exudes an aura of refined luxury. As one moves through the foyer of the home and discovers various niche spaces within Shantham House’s larger residential cum business program, one finds a story slowly unravelling: about time-honoured traditions and the dominant bonds of ethnicity. The house by Matharoo Associates blends the dichotomy of a multi-program house set upon an anonymous plot without deviating from its main aim of being a lesson in simple, clean and dynamic lines even as its structure is supported by a complex geometry as far as the landscape is concerned. Its contemporary design philosophy as created by the architectural team reflects the requirement for exercising extreme restraint, acute problem solving and honesty of material expression.
