The dimensions of the site are brought indoors with an open area plan of the house guided by minor changes in flooring patterns and ceiling heights to differentiate spaces. The two floors of the house are well connected with the central double-height dining area. The residence has 4 bedrooms – one on the ground floor with a garden patio and three on the first floor with balconies. A large home office with conference facilities is an added feature of the Vaswani residence.

A simple yet impactful design element of the project is the sculptural staircase made of steel and wood with teak wood handrail, and floating treads detailing. The house creates a visual as well as a physical connection with the outdoors and nature. The north-facing glazed surfaces are covered with overhangs to prevent heat gain in the north.  The facade of the Vaswani residence is designed with a series of vertical louvers made of bamboo.
