If our client wants a cottage style home that's what they're going to get. If they want a modern office then that's what we're going to deliver. Sometimes a client wants just an addition other times we're hired to work on a complete re-model of the project or at times on a new project. What's great about us is that we're affordable and offer quality service at each level.
The house is situated at upper class residential district in New Delhi itself. Though it is plush location but it is packed, quite congested from all three sides except the front obviously. We can even say it is a high density residential zone area in Delhi.
Therefore the architectural planning becomes very important which actually remains very close to the nature because of its direction/location i.e. 65 degree East. Basically the core concept was to avoid the house of swarming mood due to location in that area. As an architect I totally agree that outdoor living spaces if tackle correctly play vital role in both aesthetics & functionality in any residential buildings. Thus allowed me to think basic plan of the house around one central court which is actually integration of nature, aesthetics and concrete in form of courtyards vitalizes interiors, stifling these three sides enclosed building.
The courtyard itself becomes a great amenity serving as a beauteous passageway, an urban garden, a shared lawn, a secluded space of tranquillity and beauty amalgamating water, lights, walls, plantation/ tree. The attention has been given to architectural detailing in terms of openness, choices of overall materials used to create calm and sophistication in living spaces characterised by luminosity and elegance. A special thanks to the client as well who had actually sacrificed the space if we really think in a commercial way but now no regrets.
This particular house is also an amalgamation of latest innovation & technological oriented products which actually makes house more energy efficient in modern lines & safe since beginning of construction at site
Nevertheless this house is also planned inside out completely as per vaastu shastra in totality.
CNC Work throughout the house has embarked the spaces so well that actually where ever used has created lot of interest and simply pleasing with richness overall.
Though glasses use is extensive in this house but it has been used really carefully because it also connects places very well and gives you the feel of openness.
Transitional spaces are created in such a way that it connects other areas so well that actually in one go you are able to see many activities while moving one place to other in the entire house. Probably you as resident of the house will never get bored with spaces created, materials used and the connectivity of spaces. Also double heighted transitional spaces create volumes visually, in other spaces sizes if you visualize are relatively bigger what it actually appears.
