The idea to design such a house was developed when SJK Architect’s client expressed his wish to have each room of the house incorporated the structure of a pod. Thus the Leaf House was built such that there are pods that house a guestroom, living room, kitchen and even private courtyards.

With roofs shaped like leaves, there is ample of sunlight and breeze that enters the house. The lack of symmetry in the design allows the walls of the house to be moved and opened whenever necessary. Thus, residents have the liberty to let in as much sunlight or air as per their wish. The aerial view of the property is such that it looks like a few fallen leaves on the ground.

Comprising of a swimming pool and a lily pond, this masterpiece is supported by angled steel columns. Instead of using bright colours on the exterior walls of the house, the architects have made sure that the natural colours of the materials used to construct the property like concrete, steel, linseed oil polished wood and natural limestone complement each other and are used as the only colours on the walls of the house. 

The interior of the house is luxuriously adorned with modern facilities. From branded fittings to designer bathrooms and a spacious kitchen, everything has been carefully planned to accommodate a large family into the property.
