Bettadpura Residence

Balcony is the most interesting part of the entire house as we attempted to create some green space for the apartment. Here we designed a water cascade in strip slate stone cladding and planters at different levels to create a mini-garden. A bamboo framework wall on the parapet with creepers, slate green tiles for flooring intercepted with white pebble tiles completed the look. Bamboo furniture of table and chairs complements the entire setup. Drip irrigation (by ZTC International Landscape Solutions) takes care of the water needs of the plants. The "green-wall" (bamboo framework with creepers) has been designed to create a buffer and cut down some of the harsh western sunlight during the later part of the day. This has been fixed with space in between so that the visual view is not blocked entirely. (We have attached a copy of the balcony drawing with all the specifications) A counter with storage is designed in the corner to cater to the food and drinks need during get-togethers
