The Lakehouse by Collective Project is a private lake retreat designed as a space for entertaining, and as a respite from urban life. Located on a steeply sloped and rocky site overlooking the Durgam Cheruvu Lake in Hyderabad, the property is embedded in the heart of the city while still feeling completely removed.

Due to its topography, the site has prime views across the water to a nature preserve and the contrasting density of the distant HiTec City — a 150-acre tech park that has become a prominent part of the urban landscape. Contrary to the standard architectural response in Hyderabad to fill, level and clear the site, the Lakehouse hovers above the ground, allowing the natural terrain to become a celebrated focus of the architectural experience.
