Yin Yang house is a symbolic union of the past and the present. A 30+ yr old house was renovated holding the memories of the past and yet clearing it of the unnecessary clutter. The house is the second in the CSEB series. All the new walls built were designed to be of exposed earth blocks and the old structure with its plaster and paint coat. In this manner, the old was given an additional sheen and the new remained as its subdued partner. The openings to the street level are kept minimal and the house reads as a stark composition of volumes, colour and texture.
