    From India with Love :: Hyderabad House :: Andhra Pradesh

    Rajiv Saini + Associates converted this 1980 Victorian property into a modern residence, located in Hyderabad, India.

    The existing building was slated for demolition, with the property owners wanting a more contemporary residence, instead of tearing it down, Rajiv Saini embarked on a large-scale redesign.

    The final 12,500 sq ft home includes additional rooms, cleverly placed on cantilevered volumes over the existing structure, as well as a copper clad gym overlooking the garden.

    The existing marble spiral staircase had to be replaced by a more contemporary metal and stone one and the 10' diameter hole this created was transformed into a generous skylight for the entrance living areas.

    A new pool and pavilion were also added to the garden for the residents to enjoy Hyderabad's hot and dry weather in style.
