This is a four-bedroom house on two levels. The inspirations for the plan, exterior finishes and detailing came from the wonderful stone carvings found at Makli Hills in Thatta, Sindh.

It was not possible to carve these panels but we used the moulding and casting technique on site to cast panels, borders and brackets. The focal point of the house is the atrium that not only forms the central entertaining space but also helps in ventilating the house and providing ample natural light to the areas surrounding it.

The date palm tree that already existed on site was saved and incorporated into the landscaping of the atrium and creating drama in that space. A traditional marble mosaic fountain forms the centrepiece of this area.
