N House | Artisan Design Studio | Nellore, Andhra Pradesh
A renovation project inclined towards increasing the current area by 3000 sq-ft, in order to face lift for the house. located in Nellore, a port city in Andhra Pradesh.
The design concept was to modernize the architecture as well as interiors keeping in mind sustainability and passive design while considering the hot and humid temperature of Nellore. Narrow windows with large opening over north and the white paint around the house helps to control heat gain while playing with shadows. Contrasting the built-up mini garden plays the role of reducing the heat island effect.
Providing a contrast through façade, by including sliding foldable aluminum fins extending till terrace in order to maintain privacy and contain the view. While vastu played an important role in zoning, planning and redefining the entire house, grandparents master bedroom fell in the south west direction over the ground floor along formal living, kitchen and dining.
Along with informal sitting area the first floor resides bedroom of son, daughter and guests. The gym, a home theater to serve parties falls under second floor. Hence each floor holds different functions and meaning over the section.
With silver river Italian marble adding drama and lifting up the space, artefacts collected panels behind the formal living complements the veneer display shelves. When angular wall paneling breaks the monotony white painted walls adds to the beauty.
Tactile textures and soothing colors acts as aggregate to the developed cozy corners. Minimal and sleek was the theme to maintain unity and ambiance of the space.
Grand Parent’s Room
Located in a manner which gives easy access and view to all common spaces of the house. Oak veneer adds warmness to room integrating through the figures carved over, in order to prevent sharp edges highlighting the design. Seating ledges contrasting the black marble acts as a fun element and connecting to the nature.
To provide a vision of entry and exit through elevator, it is located in the center of kids, guest and office area. Black and white patterned pallet merging with marble cladding on the wall bifurcates the space and provides a unique identity with green chair and little pop of color. Center chandelier is adding drama to the space.
Walls, floor and bed painted in shades of grey define a union. Being the major size room of the house, zoning was parted in three functions (bathroom with dresser, bed area, study area). Considering client’s fondness for gaming, a study area housing two screens and gaming collectables was designed. Living the experience through RGB light was the design aim.
Bringing the fresh and elegant feel through texture paint and golden accents. Tropical wallpaper accompanying green texture breaks the monotony of grey wall and foregrounds the corner. Golden framed mirror over adjacent wall compliments and brightens the rooms with golden strips flowing along the bed.
Bright yet contemporary feel with the use of walnut veneer paneling. Voids over bed, tv section and ceiling provides warm ambiance with the help of indirect light.
Client being a jewelry manufacture required the office with two separate entries divided in two levels for the staff members.
A multi functional space which holds space for a family get together along the gym and entertaining people through home theater. A space of all is the design vision with blend of dim and bright lighting serving various different purpose.
Plumeria rubra plant invites through the entrance, guided by the stepping stone leading to sit out area which was designed to generate front facade aesthetically. Sit out area merges with the front facade and acts like main element of the design, by providing a fresh view to the sight.
