THE WOVEN HOUSE, Residential-multi-family dwelling

Project Status: Completed

WOVEN HOUSE The project is located in Ichalkaranji , small town in Maharashtra. Ichalkaranji is famous for textile - known as Manchester of India. Taking inspiration of citys famous textile weaving, the house is designed with patterns on walls , furniture and art. In the free flowing spaces, the interior decor creates defined spaces & gives warmth through its patterns and textures. White walls and glass also form a pattern completing the feel of Woven house.

Project brief: The project brief was to design a bungalow with large living areas with kitchen and dining. Family spaces with three master bedrooms, two childrens bedrooms and a guest bedroom. The house also needed home theatre, gym, library and a hobby room.

Planning: Spread on the large plot, this house has a simple plan which is derived out of functionality of spaces, catering to clients needs. The public and private spaces are segregated within the house. Original idea was to create boundary-less spaces which flows into each other and then in the landscape. Interior decor complements the idea yet creates defined spaces keeping the flow of the spaces intact. Public areas like living, dining and family are designed around the courtyard. All the spaces in the house flow in the landscape creating harmony with the nature. Double heighted living and courtyard allow visual connection between the spaces at upper level . Glass railings help in enhancing this effect.

Stone Cladding : The walls have been cladded with tandoor stone to achieve high thermal mass in hot- dry climate of the city. Pattern of tandoor stone cladding is inspired from textile. The strip pattern enhances free standing walls and continues from exterior to interior forming elements of interiors.

Fenestrations : The windows are made of teak wood in order to match the rustic appeal of the house and seems as the continuity of the tandoor cladding. Along with architecture and interior even the artwork has been designed by us in same ethos adhering to the theme of woven house.

Mural : Double heighted mural in the courtyard is another artwork inspired by the pattern. The wooden piece of art continues from ground floor to first floor. Wooden strips have been used forming patterns from nature in subtle way. The mural is inspired by the five elements of nature :-
o Ether-(Akash) denoted as a globe.
o Earth- (Bhumi) associated as a plant
o Air-(Vayu)interpreted as bird in flight
o Water- (Jal) 70% of the earths surface is covered with water , hence depicted as Mother Earth
o Fire-(Agni) construed as a burning flame.
The mural and the courtyard compliments each other depicting the five elements in their own term. The space blends at the same time is enhanced by various architectural elements. Even the furniture has been designed with detailing, creating unique style and decor. The pattern has been the soul of the woven house. The self pattern through placement of material on different levels has created beautiful and subtle texture throughout the house.

Customized Sofa : Grey checkered pattern was an inspiration for sofa design. The square module is used creating seating at different levels. Grey floor, wooden carpet & grey shades of fabric sofa create an interesting element in the formal living area.

Bedroom1 : Master bed has siporex art mural as the background wall. The organic form is generated as if the fabric is hanging on the wall. The curves and unevenness of the fabric is superiorly depicted through siporex mural.

Bedroom 2 : Master bed with texture back panels and indirect lighting.

Green features: Climate responsive architecture Ample daylight and ventilation - Common areas naturally ventilated Courtyard planning & Landscape as micro-climatic modifier Large overhangs to protect from solar radiation Thermal mass through stone masonry
