The family comprises of the husband, wife and their son. The husband works in ESSAR while the wife is the CEO of a NGO. With the son shortly moving to London for higher studies, the spatial requirements of the family were nominal. This gave them the flexibility to convert one of the bedrooms into the entertainment room.
The architect says,
Spatially, the spaces seamlessly flow into each other. The living & dining cum bar at one end opens to multi-purpose room.This room is cleverly separated from the living area by a sliding-folding door. The living & dining cum bar also opens to the kitchen & creates a path for the bedrooms.
Living + Kitchen
The key takeaways of this home would be the clever use of pastel colours and compact furniture to make the space appear larger. English gray, pastel green and teal are used repeatedly throughout the house giving it a sense of homogeneity.
The entertainment room has loose furniture with window on one side & sliding folding door on another leading to the living, facing towards wall with grooving details with randomly placed shelves.
The material of the project is simple, defining the three main elements that make it up: the flooring changing as per the functionality of the space, the entire space except the living has wooden tiling creating a defined color contrast in the spaces. The living room has overall tiling effect with solid 6mm brass strips.
Brick cladding with different finishes is used across the house from the red bricks in kitchen to grey exposed ones in the son’s bedroom.
The paneling of the master bedroom is in art deco style while gray makes a strong comeback in the son’s room.
