The master bedroom and the guest bedroom have a foyer each, which opens into the court in the living, giving quite a rare feel while breaking all conventional notions about a bedroom. Interestingly this space can be used as a reading corner, for ironing or for dressing. The foyer seating is design with inbuilt storage below the. This space attached to bedroom help double the space visually. The bedrooms have a raised platform, which doubles up to take the bed. These platform beds have ample storage space below them. Just Above the platform the bedroom ceiling splits, to add an additional 0.9m height to the room. The higher point takes the air vents and the exhaust to keep the air circulating, which ensure the comfort levels in the bedrooms.

Having combined the dress and the toilet, a spacious feel is achieved which is accentuated further by the colour band running from the floor to the ceiling and back. The reference lines that run throughout the house are very visible, as the grooves done on the doors are also carried on to the window and wardrobe shutters. The simple design of the doors is further enhanced by recessing in the wall that takes it, that gives it a larger and unconventional feel. The family space doubles as a home theater with the screen placed on the double height wall that springs from the dining. The acoustical quality of the design gives a consistent audio output anywhere in the internal open space of the family deck as well as the dining and the living below. The various unobstructed volumes of spaces around the family deck, in the first floor, render it as a platform suspended in mid air. The openness of this, keeps the house well ventilated.
