Tejal House

Ahmedabad, India

Year: 1994


A private house must respond to the culture and lifestyle of the user.

In the case of Tejal house, the architect had to search for two specific identities; one of his son-in-law, a Parsee, and Tejal, his daughter, both having different sensitivities and aesthetics.

The ground floor represents Tejal’s social moorings through a split level living and dining overlooking the garden.

The upper floor with two bedrooms and a common space are clubbed through a common family room and a long verandah, a characteristic borrowed from the Parsee bungalow.
