A multitude of massive frames at various levels, spacious semi-covered green terraces at all floor levels getting animated with play of light as it permeates through the geometrically patterned MS trellis at the top of the largest frame and a unique experience of varying volumes right from the entry ... All this sum’s up very briefly the spatial experience of “The Shaded House”.
A coherent and authentic interior has been developed, based upon a thorough understanding of the demands of its occupants.
Entry veranda gives you feel of volumetric difference of triple height to double height. Vestibule gives the impression of open-plan layout that allows for a seamless transition from one space to another.
Engulfed by common activities on three sides, the family room acts as a cosy entertainment room for the family members.
The bright & airy living room exudes a sense of refined taste with its plush, nude-colored sofas, stone cladded wall and sunlight that seeps in through the tall windows connecting the front garden.
The dining is connected with the puja room on the north-east side, acts as a central core with a triple-height space. With intention of allowing an influx of natural light, large windows have been installed throughout the house.
The interiors follow a subtle colour scheme, highlighting the luxurious Italian marble flooring, rich materials and exquisite décor details.
The facade is expressive creating a self-shading structure. The elevated gardens on the south-east are created out of grey cubes-cladded with wooden figured MCM cladding material, while the walls looks astonishing with brick cladding.
The terrace garden to the south-east façade elevates in the front, visually connecting all three levels. The screening in the ceiling bring a sense of ornamentation to the house, and consolidate the architectural language of the facade as the focal point of the project. It provides shelter from the sun and creates different light patterns throughout the day.
