villa in an urban context
The client brief was to design a comfortable and easily livable home without missing out on all the luxuries and trappings of a modern lifestyle.
The specifications of the house and its interiors match the vision of the well-travelled and discerning client leaving no stone unturned while trying to achieve a level of perfection rarely seen in the industry.
Almost half the site in the front is a large landscaped garden.
Functionally, the house revolves around a spacious central courtyard with a glass-covered skylight. A grand double-height rough stone wall is the focal element here contrasting with the rest of the interiors and acting as a backdrop for the steel and wood staircase. The Puja room takes centre stage in this courtyard. This has come in very useful for several ceremonies and occasions.
The floor plans are derived and based on the principles of Vaastu Shastra. The formal, informal lounges, a home office, dining spaces, kitchen and a guest room are on the ground floor. Three other ensuite bedrooms, family room, gym and spa are on the first level. The house is amply supported with staff quarters, car garage and other services.
