THE TALL HOUSE, Residential-Single family dwelling

Project Status: Completed

Tall House: Armed with a carpet area of 484 sq m, this spacious bungalow is nestled in the residential colony of baner, Pune. The house is built for businessman and his wife with 2 grown up kids and his parents. Ar.Sunil Patil believes that the clients brief and architects design instincts should be in sync in order to design space with a soul. We calls this residence- Tall House.

It was a typical urban scenario where plot size was not enormous but clients expectations were. Congestion in metros and bullish trends in land cost have forced independent bungalows to grow vertically. Hence the challenge was to design spaces vertically (with a basement as required) with three levels, ensuring interaction at all levels. The outcome was a triple heighted courtyard and family lounge, parents bed, kitchen dinning on the ground floor. Two bed rooms - masters bed and daughter bed on the first floor and on the second floor a swimming pool gym Home Theater and sons bed room on the third floor. Heres how the story unfolded. Decor is simple ornamental and contemporary.

The residence is unique in its urbanism yet basic principles of sustainability have been incorporated with courtyards, water bodies, ample of light and ventilation in the design. The exterior is simple massing with geometric composition. Yet the 35 feet elevation looks very arresting with prodema- exterior veneer cladding facade. The grey granite steps give an elegant look to the entrance. The other gate at the entrance leads to the basement where car parking is given for 2 four wheelers. The interiors have been designed not only to suit the classic taste of the couple but has been fuss free and functional. Black and White theme has been used throughout. Paint has not only spruced up the spaces but also has gives a dramatic effect on the mind and body of the dwellers.

The landscape is designed with perfect resonance with the design and its surroundings. The mystery of the tall house revels itself once you are inside and you see this magnificent triple heighted courtyard which segregates the living room into formal and informal family lounge. To enhance the visual dynamics of space, the family lounge stretches till the walk out where a beautiful water cascade has been created, bringing light and nature in and giving a sense of openness. The end result being a tall house, where space flows with balance between openness and functionality.
