Located in India’s bustling Hyderabad, Collective Project’s Lakehouse affords its owners a respite from urban life. Sitting at the peak of a steep rocky slope, Lakehouse overlooks the Durgam Cheruvu Lake.
While the property is firmly embedded in the heart of the city, one of its great qualities is that it feels entirely removed from the restless hub which can be seen across the lake. HiTec City, the nucleus of Hyderabad’s activity, is a main feature of the panoramic view from Lakehouse’s huge windows.
The building looks out onto the Durgam Cheruvu Lake from three large teakwood portals that rotate and shift to frame unique views. While the lake-facing side of the property is kept open, the street-facing facade and sides are clad with slabs and thin ribs of local grey granite to create a subtle play of shadow while maintaining privacy from the neighbours.
