Art House, Residential-Single family dwelling

This house is designed as much for Art, as for its inhabitants. The project is conceptualised by incorporating the heritage character of the structure in the creative process. The right backdrop had to be created for art display in various spaces of the house. The entire space can be broadly classified into two blocks at the lower level (for art and family) and terrace (as a party zone) at the upper level. The objective was to maintain sanctity of the heritage structure, with all the modern facilities built in the design. The mosaic flooring blends with marble and wooden flooring through different areas; and wooden rafters on the ceiling being comfortable with a modern setting of imported furniture in the living and dining areas.

One of the challenges was to build and re-enforce the columns to incorporate the displays, which led to a lot of structural interplay at work. Another interesting aspect was the use of state-of-the-art technology without hindering the traditional look of the space. The HVAC system needed to control the humidity for art display, as did the lighting systems to create the right mood. Rest of the elements had to be simple and easy on the eye so that the focus always remains on the art.

The terrace has a little bar and a serving area with a green wall in the background and flooring in slate tiles. The rotunda that is the bar at the lower floor becomes the smoke room or a lounge here. The seating lounge on a slightly raised platform can be kept open or enclosed with the air conditioning for comfort. The terrace completes the home, creating the right balance between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The most striking feature of this project is the old-world look being at home within a modern setting. A balanced blend of two worlds the traditional existing with a contemporary home, making it a visually aesthetic experience.
