This project was an intresting brief as this was a makeover with an extension to combine two existing houses and transforming them into a upmarket dwelling for a family for 10 people.
The challenge here was the road was the road from which we saw the main veiw of the house was soth facing and hence required least amount of opening. Experiencing the onsite situation we felt the need to bring balconies with fins that allows them to enjoy surroundings without getting hot. This promotes well-being, health, and emotional comfort. Architectural language for this soothing house adopts an open-air concept:
The house has primary functions of living, kitchen, dining and bedrooms on the first a floor respectively. To bring in the traditional art and craft of village as contemporary outcome, the living room is transformed into double height space in plain palette contrasting to the colorful patterned fabrics and rug. The proportions of openings bring in the required light and ventilation, preventing the harsh sun. As an alternate to monotonous kitchen interiors, here to depict the theme based, a contrasting color palette of brown is used distinctively with white shade.
Through this project, we incorporated simple methods to create architectural spaces, use of common local material to clad and color palette of pop out shades which enhance the beauty of mass. From every position outside the house, one can see different large openings for ample of airflow and natural lighting into the spaces, to create a warm feel.
