On a very posh area side by side to the margalla hills, the Montage DESIGNBUILD studio has built a typical Pakistani housing in bold new fashion. In Pakistani cultivation the disjunction between the public and private almost reaches absurd levels.

Throwing it out in the open, linking it only through a glass bridge, house remaining is like one solid shell where boundaries are minimal and where every space seamlessly flows into the other. By creating a fourteen feet high ceiling for the living room, different levels flow into one another, thus creating a strong link between the living spaces and the bedrooms on the upper floors.

But the link of this shell to the outside world is again through a bridge that passes over a water body, which acts like a reflection pool at night. The entire basement is designed as an entertainment area and some utilities, but a sunken lawn and green spaces around the basement create lavish seating and dining spaces for guests that can be brought directly into the basement. All of the terraces can also be used for entertainment, from inside or directly from outside the house.
