A Home Around a Pool
Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan
Interior Renovation, Built
30,000 Sq. Ft.
This home is for a ceramist and a painter. The couple wished to have spaces in which they could each create their art in a specific and solitary way. As a design strategy, the home is divided into a studio and living unit. A screened courtyard in the middle allows for ample light and cross ventilation. It serves as an interstitial space that separates but also connects the two sections of the home.
These planes are crafted out of curated pieces of teakwood, which would have otherwise been discarded as waste on construction sites. The pieces are carefully composed together, making each tray unique. The wooden base lifts the tray slightly, allowing one to enjoy the natural undulations of the different pieces beneath. The wood is finished with an all-natural, wholesome polish, adding a silky sheen to the surface.
