OM Shiv | LG Associates | Bhavnagar
OM Shiv bungalow is a residence for a family of five members which is in Bhavnagar, Gujarat. The client was expecting their dream home to be simple yet luxurious and unique innovatively knotted by LG Associates an architectural design firm. Aims to get an exquisite look with modern designs which are eccentric in their structure, and can embody timeless beauty. This house is all about open design, luxury, and visual connectivity between the interiors and exteriors of the house. The luxurious residence uses a variety of materials that give it a unique appeal.
The Principal Architects share that the house was designed for a joint family, with three generations and their different likes and requirements. Hence, we felt an Eclectic theme would be an answer to the design of this expansive house. The clients wanted a warm and relaxed, contemporary aesthetic design in calm tones for their bungalow.
The facade is expressive creating a self-shading structure. The walls look astonishing with earthy tone cladding stone while simple white frames as a base element are stretched up to the highest level. Placing a striking white geometric sliding screening adds character to the design spaces by creating a magical play of light and shadow. The signage ‘OM SHIV’ on a grey concrete façade forms an eye-catchy element to the front elevation.
The client wants some old type “Khadki” unique entry door. And it can give a different identity to the house so we design the “Khadki door” and paint it a shade of blue colour which gives it a unique identity. The journey starts from a huge wicket gate that opens to the main entrance of the house which represents the spiritual side of our client. The walkway is covered by A space frame to create a sociography leading to the main door. – added by The Principal Architects.
