Apartment 5212 | Yellow Door Architects | Bangalore
The Client was looking for a space that reflects warmth of a home with a dash of Luxury. We have tried to achieve this by the juxtaposition of materials and textures used. For example, there is a hint of brass in the walls, hanging lights, customised TV unit, where brass represents luxury and the earthy cement texture clad walls represent the warmth of the space. We have tried to marry the two elements to provide an outcome that suits the client and for him to be able to call the space his home.
The apartment presented us with an elongated floor plan. A linear corridor leads you to the common living spaces. We used the corridor as the starting point of the design story which gradually transitions to the main plot, which are the common spaces. On the left, the corridor is flanked with timber slats of charcoal finish complimented by the grey marble flooring. The vertical slats welcome you to the home and create a sense of curiosity as to what lies ahead of it.
It is multifunctional in nature; it houses the Puja unit in it to. It also acts as a camouflage for the utility door and electrical panels. Continuing the mood created with the timber slats, rest of the walls are treated with a lovely cement texture which are adorned at intervals with brass strips. Complementing the walls is a low lying timber ceiling, which adds warmth and intimacy to the living spaces.
The living spaces have an open floor plan. The kitchen, dining and living spaces merge as one. We have tried to keep the essence of each space according to its function while also trying to keep the overall design language consistent across the spaces.
The master bedroom and children’s bedroom lie at the end of the corridor. A private dressing nook is created in the master bedroom using the wardrobe as a screen, and it also helped in providing a minimal look inside the bedroom. The theme of the house continues behind the carmine headboard with brass strips inlayed in the light timber panelling.
The colour and material palette are contrasting in nature. The colours are bright and bold whereas the materials and textures have a subdued tonality to it. The balance is achieved by play and layering of the contrasting elements.
