Muzaffarnagar’s Hem House: A Functional Yet Calming Retreat

Muzaffarnagar’s Hem House: A Functional Yet Calming Retreat

Hem House, designed by Portal 92 in 2022, is located in the bustling town of Muzaffarnagar, India.

This residential-refurbishment and redevelopment project spans an area of 3400 sqm (3,400 sqm). The fa├žade was cleverly reconfigured to give the two asymmetrical residential structures an illusion of oneness. An imposing portico greets visitors as they approach the Hem House and leads into the central common space. The stone and wooden louver details have been carefully designed to imbibe lightness, warmth and create a sense of organized asymmetry. On the exterior, a horizontal stone volume with plants flowing through it serves as an extended balcony and recreational sit-out area.

This house is a face-lift of its former self, crafted with revived meaning, to cohabitate in harmony.
