The house design is based on the East Indian planning principle called Vaastu—which was then modified to adapt to California outdoor living for an “East meets West” fusion. The wooded site is triangular-shaped and is squeezed between the street and a creek. To fit on the site and address Vaastu, the final building form evolved into a three-wing solution; The wings skew at a 15-degree angle to each other thus allowing gardens and daylight to penetrate the house in unexpected ways; The center wing, orientated on the cardinal compass points, has large folding glass doors on two opposite sides which allows the terrace to flow thru the house from south to north. Inside, high light monitors provide natural daylighting for optimal lighting for the modern East Indian art collection.
