Dr. Richard Residence

The Richard Residence, a distinctive residence located at Uthandi, Chennai spans an area of 227.61 Sq.m. The residence embodies a concept rooted in thoughtful utilization of levels to visually capture varying perspectives of the sea, alleviating the monotony of viewing from the same elevation. This deliberate planning takes full advantage of the beach views.

The entrance is adorned with a paved pathway and deck, leading to a welcoming garden space, coupled with convenient parking for two cars. A sunken area for living, adjacent to the dining space, fosters a social atmosphere. The open kitchen in the northwest corner optimizes space, while the swimming pool at the rear end strike a delicate balance between privacy and aesthetics.

The interiors boast a sleek minimalistic design with a rustic touch, featuring windows meticulously designed to usher in natural light and ensure cross ventilation in every room. The material palette is a symphony of RR Masonry, and Grey tiles on the white walls. Embracing the traditional approach of rubble masonry for passive cooling, the residence becomes a sustainable haven, enhancing the micro-climate within. Timber windows and doors further contribute to the timeless and traditional ambiance.
