The Lateral House in Bengaluru, designed by Gaurav Roy Choudhury is a pristine white space whose layout sets up a smart play of height, space, and functionality. This home sports the sunny personality of a Mediterranean town house. The sweeps of pristine white are many, and it indeed dominates the visual spectacle of the house. This is a structure that at face value seems to break down the conventional arrangement of homes, but is actually a cleverly built shell that creates a sense of connected openness, even while hiding private spaces of escape.
This residential project plays an intelligent game with scale, light, material and interior layout to maximise every fundamental idea behind a home. The ‘Lateral House’ is just the right mix of unconventional and traditional. It also is a good balance between the minimalist school of design thought, and the more functional and well-stocked approach.
