An Affair with Nature

Spread over 5000 sq ft, the house attempts to stand apart from the neighbourhood. Elements and materials are juxtaposed to create balance. The entrance boundary wall is ushered by greens, adding to the aesthetics. The main gate is linear and patterned in grey. The interplay of light and materials is evident in the design. It was a requirement as per Vaastu to leave a free space in the north side. The design firm provided a service passage while incorporating a water fountain. Mirrors on the side walls of the passage enhance the space.
Principal Architect Thakur Udayveer Singh
The client’s brief was to design a house which maximizes space efficiency, has an affair with nature, is minimal, and in compliance with the norms of Vaastu. The design is unconventional; it is fluid, providing a sense of flow and continuity of form - not usually seen in the precincts of Punjab

An Affair with Nature

Detailing is seen in the furniture, wooden paneling on walls, chandeliers to light up the spaces, and in the uniquely designed bedrooms, metal artwork on walls, the puja room, the bar area with its artistic use of metal rods to form a bottle rack, gold designed counter, wooden flooring and an arched wall design. A minimalistic façade, functional and spacious planning, and sophisticated interiors achieve a balanced design. Dressed in a colour palette of whites and greys, the façade symbolizes purity and fluidity in form.
