The Hariyani Residence is located about 45 kms from Ahmedabad at Aaloha. In this heavily contoured site the house is sited on a natural plateau from where it overlooks on to a valley. The house itself is slightly elevated so as to hover above the ground plane. This allows for uninterrupted flow of the natural systems including vegetation and water. The house is composed of two blocks and a pedestrian walkway. A larger block and a smaller block, the main living spaces and bedrooms for the family are located within the larger block overlooking the swimming pool and the valley beyond. The smaller block is the guest house for out of town guests spending the weekend at the residence.
