‘The Vertical House’ / (Sambod Residence, Kochi) sits on a tight plot of 7 x 11 meters ( 1.7 cents) which prompted sectional explorations in the design process. Conceptually, the house starts with the social spaces of the house on the lower split levels while more private spaces on the upper levels. The staggering section also helps the spaces to flow into each other rather than isolating them. The sliced isometric of the project enables us to understand the key vertical relationships between various spaces of the house, as manifested. The slices also helps to understand the changing sections across the shorter side of the house as a layered user experience.
