This modern family residence in New Delhi, India is designed for three generations of a family. Architecture and design firm Morphogenesis created an energy efficient home that allows air movement and light to flow throughout the house. The lap pool helps with heat absorption on the top terraces. The skylights above the interior garden creates a green sanctuary within the house. Interior spaces are divided into three categories — private domain such as bedrooms and breakfast room, inter-generational spaces such as the kitchen, dinning areas and family room, and public domain where visitors are invited to participate in cultural activities.
The Olive Tree Residence in Los Altos, California sits high on a hill in the Costal Range with sweeping view of the Santa Clara Valley. Architect Mark English created this modern home design with an open plan that takes full advantage of the spectacular view. The clean modern design and simple palette is balanced by a brightly coloured kitchen.
