New Delhi-based architectural practice Amit Khanna Design Associates (AKDA) has designed a unique urban family that sits on a 3200 sq-ft site

Located in a rapidly densifying part of Noida, a suburban region to the east of New Delhi, the site is set alongside a series of private family residences, and the zoning plan necessitated sharing a blank wall with the neighbour to the south, with the building line pushed back from the site edge in the other three directions.

The composition is made up of three main design elements:  a circular drum, a triangular wedge and a rectilinear cube. While the drum acts as the primary living space, the wedge juxtaposes this form and houses different service areas, while the cube establishes the boundary conditions.

A perforated brick screen celebrates the famed Indian sun, while providing shade along the front surface of the wedge. The building crafts an identity not only through the geometrical forms, but also through its materiality.
