Dr Kulkarni's House in Ahmedabad was built in 1960. This two bedroom house on a small suburban plot has two dominant elements in the elevation - an extended plinth, remniscent of the otla in the traditional Gujarati house, and a projecting roof which shade the walls. The structure is of load bearing brick walls. The flat roof is designed for ponding to reduce heat within the house during the day and cool the roof top for sleeping at night. The total area of the house is 150 sq. m. and cost of construction was Rs. 36,000.
