Ahmedabad-based (India) design practice Hiren Patel Architects have completed The Courtyard House project. Completed in 2012, the stunning property resides in Ahmedabad, Gujrat, India. The Courtyard House was designed with a grid of 7’x7’. The house has been designed in such a way that all living spaces and passages face the  garden, which was also the main design concept, thus creating a central courtyard which holds the reflection pool making it a major design element. This also makes the design an introvert one, leaving the garden at the back of the property but still visible and accessible from all the rooms of the contemporary Indian house.

The formal living room comes first along with two bedrooms followed by a 9in wide passage parallel to the central courtyard and reflection pool. The passage ends with the dining and family room. This area is is utilised to its maximum, thus has a big verandah on all three sides, which adds the value to the north side garden. This luxury Indian property has a large size of openings and skylight to allow ample amount of light to flood the rooms throughout the day. It is also a crucial feature in Ahmedabad climate. Light is essential but not scorching heat. Screens and deep verandah protect these huge openings from the harsh sun. Verandahs also become wonderful outdoors spaces during relatively cool evenings and mornings. The contemporary Indian property is made of RCC roof structures covered with wood. Also verandah and upper rooms are covered with wood. Floors are covered with natural marble stone and wooden planks. Custom designed doors and windows are made of wood and laminated glass.

Heaven… Or Las Vegas?


Brooklyn based, Chilean Artist, Iván Navarro has created ‘Heaven or Las Vegas’ a collection of neon light wall sculptures that are built from the floor plans of twelve of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers, including the flatiron building in New York and the Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai.  Chosen not only for their ambitious innovations in engineering and design, but also for their historical relevance and influence, the series features western-style structures that range in scale and span the world.  Through a positioned play of mirrors and light, viewers have the experience of looking up into the interior volumes and contours of each building. Suspended within each piece is a simple phrase (such as surrender or abandon) which echo, like subtle commands through the illusory depth of each object.
