Minimal Melange House, Residential-Single family dwelling

THE CONCEPT The brief of the client was to design a budget house in sleek and contemporary style. As he is from the Chettinad region of South Tamil nadu, a touch of traditional chettinad feeling is infused into the design by way of the interpretation of the traditional courtyard and extensive woodwork in stair handrails. THE COURTYARD This south facing house has been designed with a central sky light with staircase around as in the traditional houses. A contemporary style corner 'L' shaped courtyard designed in the dining room gives an aesthetic appearance to the area with its stacked slate stone finish and niches on its bright walls. This courtyard helps the occupants of the house to enjoy the changing nature throughout different seasons. This courtyard is divided by a large glass wooden doors which can be opened to bring in the breeze. Due to this the entire house is cool and comfortable even during the summer months. Pergolas placed over the corner courtyard create a play of light and shadow. THE FINISHES Interiors of the house are kept simple and minimal which gives a spacious and open feel. Hand rails designed in dark wood and clear glass finish with wooden trellis highlights in this all white colour scheme. Decor of the house is kept minimal with only few ready-made furniture. Family room in the first floor has an informal seating with a customized swing which matches with the concealed pooja unit and the handrail around. THE CHETTINAD TERRACE The traditional feel is complete with the recreation of the Chettinad House in the terrace. All the materials like the 'Aathangudi' flooring, terracotta tiles, wooden rafters and stone pillars were specifically brought from Karaikudi in south Tamil Nadu.
