JAVIER CALLEJAS SEVILLA
Sited on a plot with challenging zoning and height restrictions in southern Chandigarh, Residence 145 is a play on the fundamentals of urban residential design. Conceptualised by Charged Voids for three generations of a family, the layout of the house is centred on the idea of connected living. A strong connection with the outdoors is established through internal courtyards, with the interior spaces framing sunny views of the landscape.
The home is designed to support and reinforce the interpersonal lifestyles of multigenerational, joint Indian households. Elements of nature—bright daylight through the skylights, floral fragrance, the gentle sound of quietly flowing water—are introduced with the intention of visually and spiritually invigorating the space and its occupants. With this project, Charged Voids endeavours to continue the search for the original form of space—imbibing the fundamentals of simplicity and efficiency while rejecting superfluous ornamentation.
