AREA: 300 sqyd.
LOCATION: New Delhi
The project is a G+4 floor residence with two floors for the client’s personal use and the other two for rental. It is a 300 sq.yd. north facing plot. The stilt floor consists of parking, an entertainment zone and a servant room. The above floors were almost typical with the master and the kid’s bedroom in the front, the living and the core in the center and the kitchen and the guest bedroom at the rear.
The facade is designed as a simple contemporary concept with materials like Indian stones, cemento texture paint and raw brickwall. The idea was to break the balconies at each level to create a double height volume at every level.
A vertical green wall is planned on the first two floors in the balcony to bring nature into otherwise a busy urban location. The brickwall on the right has a pattern created by projecting bricks out adding a certain play. The rood being the crown is clad with wooden and edged with MS section.
In the ground floor, which was to be used by the parents, the material palate was kept minimal and very subtle. The flooring was kept light grey and the walls were painted light beige on a white base. As we enter, we first see a sliding folding door covering the puja room with a backlit ceiling. The puja room is separated from the living room with a perforated and customised TV cabinet. The back wall of the living room is clad with Statuario tiles and brushed nickel inlay.
The master bedroom has wooden flooring and a backlit lasercut wooden ceiling to provide for the warmth needed. The backwall of the bed is clad with grey Italian marble with grooving in it. The walls are painted light beige and the TV is planned to be hung from the ceiling with a metal support. The bedroom also has a dresser with a full height mirror next to the TV.
The master bedroom is designed to have dark stone cladding and wooden flooring to create a cozy space. The walls are painted beige and the backwall has dark grey painted wooden battens. The kid’s bedroom is designed with shades of pastel pink in the ceiling, wardrobe and the TV cabinet which extends into a playful study table for the girl. The bed is custom designed with a metal frame and green vines.
