164 Villa | Roaish Architecture + Design | Chennai
Project 164 Villa is located on East Coast Road, Chennai designed by Aishwraya Krish, the Principal Architect of Roaish Architecture + Design. This project is a 12,000 Sq. Ft. Villa tucked away from the bustling city just a few hundred meters from the Bay of Bengal. This home design presents a splendid amalgamation of unique design, climate-responsive forms, and contemporary spatial arrangements. The minimal form of the house follows the singular aesthetic while surprising visitors with contrasting elements.
The White and brown exterior of the building Compliments the vibrant use of colors inside the Villa. The exterior ambiance achieved is contemporary, and at the same time, reflects a calm and positive vibe. The finest light fixtures were selected to provide the desired light intensity and quality while adding to the aesthetics of the facade. Splashes of meticulously chosen intense colors act as highlights against the otherwise neutral palette and set the color schemes for the various spaces in the villa. Potted plants placed at strategic points add to the liveliness of the spaces.
A modern understanding of geometry was designed with fuchsia seating in the foyer space. As soon as guests enter the villa, they are invited to a volume of double height Informal living space that is located in the center of the space in terms of proximity. The 30′ high feature wall is cladded with sea blue tinted Onyx stone that lights up in multiple permutations and combinations. For the acoustic solutions, we ran beige suede upholstered panels to the entire height of the wall in parts. The ballerina floor lamp was specially procured to accentuate the onyx. The TV panel on the opposite side of the onyx wall is 15 feet in length, which houses the TV on a fluted paneling made from MDF and is flanked by open curio shelves. The cement texture paint brings character to the designed unit.
The Transition corridor spaces that connect every part of the house, A plum grape color with a linear texture on the first half of the wall, and the grey chair rail run along the bottom length of it. The resin art that enhances the plum wall was done by the client themselves, adding her exclusive creations as décor for the villa.
Formal living area
The Formal Living of the home is adjacent to the Foyer space, A pastel pink wall with a play of capsule mirrors is the backdrop for our curved sectional sofa. The grey seating in the living room is planned such that any formal conversation can take place at ease. Opposite to this is the Designer’s favorite flamboyant flamingo floor lamp.
Dining area and relaxing space
The dining setup that the designer customized from the furniture vendor. The dining chairs in pastel color upholstered with brass base compliments the interior décor. It is an artistic retreat for the client to pursue her love for resin art. The designer had matched the unique color of the wall to one of the shades in the drapes and contrasted it with a lemon-yellow two-seater sofa. The faux wall we created has LED lighting that runs along the entire length of the aperture.
The Master bedroom of the Villa houses two parts to it. An informal seating area and the bedding area. The purple wine color is the feature wall of the space and it is balanced out with a fawn color 8ft high upholstered headboard with a dispersed lighting strip around it. Two grey-tinted wall sconces flanked on either side of the bed add to the accent lighting of the room.
Guest room 1
On the other side, Adjacent to the lift is the Guest bedroom with a light color palette. The minimal beading on the wall painted the same color brings a plush character to the space. A cove-lit detailing was designed for the headboard, with an arched upholstered panel finished with a piece of sky-grey suede fabric.
Guest room 2
Keeping in mind a similar fluted pattern but variation in color, designers curated the design for the second guest bedroom. The Pastel blue color gave a cool palette to the space bringing about its own theme. The drapes across the house are a similar pattern but a different color making it a unifying factor across 12000 sq. ft of space.
Home study area
Coming to the Home Study, the ocean blue textured wall with its equally spaced beadings brings about a minimal yet serious vibration to the space. The 12ft long study table to seat two was customized with thin 4mm grooves running lengthwise off this curated piece.
The foyer leads to the secondary terrace, cladded with Kandikal Stone and finished with a coat of pristine white to house the colorful wall decor elements.
All in all, the designer have created a spatial experience that borrows a balanced amount from modern, trendy design tools as well as conventional devices in order to make the best use of a space that is both homely and comfortable but also induces immense awe and adulation.
