The residence was designed in traditional style. The major constraint in the project was to create spacious feeling interiors in a narrow plot of just 32' width.

Many walls enclosing spaces are curved walls. This residence is provided with a basement parking above which is a courtyard with palm trees.

The residence includes 3 bedrooms, a study room, a foyer, a family room, a dining room overlooking the courtyard, a pooja room and a modern kitchen with a utility area. The courtyard has a central stone meditation platform and is covered by a glass pyramid atop. The glass pyramid resembles the proportions of the pyramids of Giza and benefits the health of the person meditating. Palm trees were planted to give a feeling of ground floor level.

Traditional aspects were incorporated for the pooja room and interior treatment.
