Platform House

Sustainable Architecture Travancore

Platform House - Travancore

This home was designed to integrate the extension and existing building with a steep site, and to thereby give an excellent connection to the garden and park views. The split level home has a series of platforms over five different levels that link internal spaces with each other and with the outdoors to allow for changing levels of privacy and flexibility to each space.

Courtyards and rooftop gardens maximise landscaped areas, create cross ventilation, and integrate the garden closely with all living spaces. Glazing faces north, high level operable windows allow the ‘stack effect’ to cool the home in summer, and the rooftop garden allows for additional outdoor space, and views to the park and city.
