This weekend residence is located on a hill top site overlooking Khadakwasla Lake on the outskirts of Pune. Several options for the design were done. Option 1 uses the sloping ridge on site to locate the house such that views to the east and west can be maximized. The house has three bedrooms and a cantilevered deck with panoramic views apart from the main living-dining space that has verandahs to east and west.
