Suchina – Residential Project | Int-Hab Architecture+Design Studio | Bangalore
This project is a five-bedroom residence located in the heart of Bengaluru city. One of the key elements considered during designing was spatial organisation, with the circulation core being the focal point and all other spaces designed around it.
The house is divided into three floors and is enhanced thanks to the visual connectivity between all of them. the ground level contains a spacious foyer, home office, home theatre along with a courtyard overlooking an ornate skylight and a vertical garden provided near the entrance.
The first floor is completely dedicated to the family with all private spaces like the kitchen, dining and the bedrooms located there. The second floor is designed to be completely private with three bedrooms located there. The stairs continue up to a third floor that provides access to a large roof terrace containing a host of amenities along with a green area for hosting gatherings, which was an important aspect of the brief.
While the form of the building is based on a cuboid, the relationship between the solids and voids are conveyed effectively in the design throughout the fenestration.
Clever and well-designed fenestration become the style statement of the building. The custom designed jalli with a geometric design of interlocking hexagons to form an elegant honeycomb complements the green surroundings and is one of the highlights of the project.
Inclusions of skylights, double heights, huge doors and windows in the design of the building ensures that each space receives ample amount of light and ventilation.
