Bringing together the soul of Indian traditions and the finesse of the contemporary, this magnificent home is all that you need for living and loving with family.
A home is not just a wall-bound structure where the weary come to rest, it is at the very foundation of one’s identity and the owner’s of this magnificent house realized. Residing in Bahrain, the owner’s wanted this home to be representative of their values to pass on to their children, thus traditional infused with contemporary was the décor style that Thoughts Parallels chose for this loving family of four.
Located within a private enclave, connected yet away from the chaos of Kozhikode city, the home was designed with the warmth and care appropriate for a familial space. With a harmonious architectural approach, they employed novel and innovative methods to infuse energy into the essence of traditional sciences that they utilized here. In light of the climate factors of the region, sloping roofs and large overhangs are placed to combat the heavy monsoon rains. But also a patio and large expanses of the verandah are provided so that these semi-permeable spaces give the owner’s the chance to enjoy the exteriors and rains too.
Structurally, the house optimizes its linear horizontal lines, vast cantilevered roofs weaving around the resident trees and give an immersive view of the outside using large glass doors. Sliding bi-fold doors and sometimes the lack of doors itself create a seamless space that seems expansive in its continuity. In place of conventional demarcations of spaces using walls and doors, the house is made utilizing the surrounding views and strategically placed rooms.
These rooms have also been specifically designed in order to respectfully accommodate the family’s demand for the clear separation of the public and private spaces within the house. As a result, the ground floor of the house consists of all the areas that are for gatherings and socializing being strategically placed on the ground floor, while the private spaces are relegated to the upper level.
Made rich with Indian familial values and living principles, this project is a true representation of the innovations of the present. The homemade primarily out of steel, for lightness and aesthetics, with modern and contemporary style and engineering, provides an emotionally and visually immersive setting for this wonderful family of four.
