Loft house is a hill cottage located in the beautiful surroundings of Junglia gaon with forest on the left & magnificent views of valley and distant mountains in front. The house has a loft in the middle overlooking living on one side & dining / kitchen on the other. Dormer windows in the roof bring in valley view from loft at the same time making roof interesting & complex. House was oriented to receive views of terraced fields in valley and is designed for hill character both inside & out. This gives a break to users from urban life & helps them connect with nature bringing them at ease. Owing to its hill character, house beautifully sits in natural surroundings with roof echoing the shape of distant hills. Raw exterior having exposed brickwork & unpainted GI roofing sheet blends well with nature. Space planning, openness & visual connections have governed design.  As one enters house from veranda, one can see from one end to the other. There is hardly any differentiation between inside & outside.  Sliding folding doors & large openings bring outside inside while capturing views of nature. House is a composition of varying heights, which makes the entire experience of being there interesting.
