Oasis of modern architecture in the midst of south Indian fabric.
A renovation project inclined towards increasing the current area by 3000 sq-ft, in order to face lift for the house located in Nellore, a port city in Andhra Pradesh.
The design concept by Artisan Design Studio was to modernize the architecture as well as interiors keeping in mind sustainability and passive design while considering the hot and humid temperature of Nellore. Narrow windows with large openings over north and the white paint around the house helps to control heat gain while playing with shadows. Contrasting the built-up mini garden plays the role of reducing the heat island effect, while Vastu played an important role in zoning, planning and redefining the entire house.
With silver river Italian marble adding drama and lifting up the space, artefacts collected panels behind the formal living complements the veneer display shelves. When angular wall paneling breaks the monotony white painted walls adds to the beauty.
Tactile textures and soothing colors act as aggregate to the developed cozy corners. Minimal and sleek was the theme to maintain unity and ambiance of the space.
Located in a manner which gives easy access and view to all common spaces of the house.
Oak veneer adds warmth to the room integrating through the figures carved over, in order to prevent sharp edges highlighting the design. Seating ledges contrasting the black marble acts as a fun element and connects to nature.
To provide a vision of entry and exit through the elevator, it is located in the center of kids, guest and office area. Black and white patterned pallet merging with marble cladding on the wall bifurcates the space and provides a unique identity with green chair and little pop of color. Centre chandelier is adding drama to the space.
Walls, floor and bed painted in shades of grey define a union. Being the major size room of the house, zoning was parted in three functions (bathroom with dresser, bed area, study area). Considering the client’s fondness for gaming, a study area housing two screens and gaming collectables was designed. Living the experience through rgb light was the design aim.
Bringing the fresh and elegant feel through texture paint and golden accents.
Tropical wallpaper accompanying green texture breaks the monotony of grey wall and foregrounds the corner. Golden framed mirror over adjacent wall compliments and brightens the rooms with golden strips flowing along the bed.
Bright yet contemporary feel with the use of walnut veneer paneling. Voids over bed, tv section and ceiling provides warm ambiance with the help of indirect light.
A multifunctional space which holds space for a family to get together along the gym and entertain people through home theater. A space of all is the design vision with a blend of dim and bright lighting serving various different purposes.
Plumeria rubra plant invites through the entrance, guided by the stepping stone leading to a sit out area which was designed to generate front façade aesthetically.
Sit out area merges with the front façade and acts like the main element of the design, by providing a fresh view to the sight.
