Dear Sefiens,

I give my advance thanks to read this post. We are planning to propose an Additional first floor in the existing ground floor villa, But the issue is the existing villa was a Load bearing masonry structure (There is no Columns and Beam frames, Except Lintel & Sunshades) and the major slab possess one way direction directly rest on masonry wall.

Is it possible to propose an additional floor with modification in wall patterns, different from ground floor? I have attached here with Existing ground floor plan and proposed first floor plan. Please suggest me is this is Structurally safe and Stable? (Age of structure 20 Years, In Very Good Condition, No Cracks and Leakages)

Thanks & Regards,
Mohamed H

Dear Sefian,
Kindly note that there is difference between concrete masonry and brick masonry.
I presume that you are referring to brick masonry.
Brick masonry is strong in compression and cannot take tension, moments and bending stresses. Hence eccentric loading is not possible. Therefore you can raise first floor over the ground floor exactly vertically. You can refer to IS Code SP 20. You can download from net
