Sample House, Spaceboard That Defines Your Moodboard | Anand Patel Architects | Gandhinagar
The sample house of Shivalay Sharnam developed by Shiv Infrastructure located at Kudasan, Gandhinagar, is an exhibit of liveable spaces. The designers of Anand Patel Architects have tried to convey an unconventional touch of warm colors that symbolizes varied personalities who would pay a visit to the place, in search of a perfect home.
Integration of different colours, and balancing its overall impact within a space was challenging during the conceptual stage itself. Yet, imagining much beyond how the compositions might look, the main idea was to create an atmosphere of how the spaces would make you feel amid the chromatic palette.
As you enter the house, the hexagon metal screen is bound to distract you for a moment since it creates a classic yet contemporary look, that partially separates the living room and dining space. Moving further while you step into rooms of vivid color scheme, you would realize how the design connects to our emotions and daily activities. The proportionate arrangement of colors within the room layout creates a design statement expressing stimulation. Colours like blue, yellow and red are bold and dramatic that encourages communication, with a feeling of light and space into action.
Other than the idea of using colors in interior design, it is true that “Nothing is finished without the art. It’s what designs the space”, once mentioned by an expert founder of a very well-known design brand called Martin Waller. For the sample house, the architects worked with artists to bring out some interesting artworks based on room colors, proportions and each within a specific theme to create an artistic language to the space. The idea was to create an inspiring place for the inhabitants by bringing the whole room together quite effectively. The visual element of each room is appealing and of extreme importance.
Apart from the beautiful styling with wall-arts, another major highlight of the exhibit was its lighting accessories. “We provide lights in the living and dining room to give a feel good factor. It’s a signature pattern”, writes the designers themselves. One more interesting parameter designed in the house is its vertical garden wall in the balcony. Landscape, being an important part of our lives; it brings to mind nature, peace and harmony. Due to lack of efficient green space in the neighbourhood, the thought of providing one inside the house became a concern. The architects also made sure that the artificial green wall would not come in direct contact with the sunrays for its maintenance purpose.
Overall the sample house implements the color palette, decorative artworks and the fabrics which communicates the purpose of creating a positive feel to the interiors. It is a house that welcomes many moods, and not just one in particular.

About Anand Patel Architects
Anand Patel Architects, founded by Ar. Anand Patel in 2007, is a multidisciplinary practice that renders professional services across various scales of architectural and interior design projects. Laid on the foundations of a humble beginning, our practice has evolved to standards which are indigenous and stems from the socio-cultural realities of our contexts and surroundings. Mentored by the principal architect Anand Patel, our studio at Ahmedabad strives towards achieving a timeless quality of architecture.
Inspired by the original proponents of Geoffrey Bawa’s works and his design philosophy, our practice has evolved from its vernacular roots towards a design movement in which sensitivity for local context combines with the principles of modernism. We believe in a realistic and pragmatic design approach. It helps us to directly collaborate with our clients and derive a product, tailored to cater their needs and satisfaction. The idea is to cultivate a synergistic alliance between the built and the surroundings. Our grit on excellence, technology integration and data driven approach allows us to look at context as a storehouse of resources to evolve and exist not just through preservation but more so through evolution.
Working hand in hand with various agencies, APA architects venture towards specific design solutions for each unique context, integrated with a thread of sustainability. The design process initiates with a brief from the client which is carefully evaluated and further researched by our team. Through collaborative efforts, inputs are drawn from a unified work of the architects, structural and environmental aspects from the onset of a project. This translates into an enhanced design solution, thereby, inhibiting knowledge from various expertise.
Our studio provides comprehensive professional services, including site analysis, site planning, architectural designs, services design (storm drainage, water, sewerage, electrical and air conditioning), specifications, quantities, execution drawings, site supervision along with other subsidiary services that goes into designing a project from inception to its competition. This allows the team to resolutely focus on the core competence of conception, creation and realization of great design projects.
With the narrative of ‘intimate immensity’ imbibed into the works of APA, we are a group of creative, passionate and innovative minds. We are committed towards delivering an outcome that asserts its existence, rested in a belief, that each design emanates from its cultural context and conveys a design sensibility through the lens of contemporary architecture.
