Balancing the velvety touch of blue with the subtlety of solid wood and neutral tones makes an interesting color palette for master bedroom and a balcony overlooking towards the entrance gives a refreshing relation with nature.
The Dining and Kitchen are placed next to each other along with triple-height Pooja room and Transitional area. The triple height acts as a light shaft, keeping the house full of light through-out the daytime. The staircase and lift acts as vertical transition to all floors.
A spacious vestibule opens to the drawing room in south-west direction, located next to greenscape. And it allows ample of natural light with a set of contemporary furniture and lighting elements having stone cladded wall as a background giving earthy effect.
The house belongs to a joint family of 3 generations. It is designed to reflect the occupant’s personality, while not losing sight of the home’s overall character and materiality.
The Urban Cuboid house, is a mass of various cuboid volumes that are staggered at various levels making it an interesting self-shading structure. To help shading and privacy, vertical screens are added connecting the floors and the façade is designed with exposed RCC cladding along with wooden highlights as a response to earthy context.
The free standing carved RCC wall in the front façade helps to maintain privacy and gives the decorum to the entrance foyer along with the appealing greenscape.
The elevation limits and divides the vertical massing by staggering the cuboids at various levels such that the constructed area doesn’t overpower the plot area.
