K. Shetty Residence


The linear atrium space generates an axis through the middle of this plan, focusing one’s view on the lake and the woods, and providing an elegant transition from the automobile arrival level on the high side to the main living spaces at grade on the lower level of the house. The house is arranged on the steep site south-facing slope in such a way as to follow the contours of the land and to take advantage of earth sheltering and direct gain passive solar strategies.
