CLIENT : Mrs. and Mr. Raghu
This house on a plot of 30’x40’ with a built-up area of 2400 sft was designed for a family of 3- Dr. Raghu, Mrs. Anitha Raghu and their son mrinal. It was kept extremely simple with minimal cladding both internally and externally. The beauty of this house lies entirely in its uncluttered simplicity. The minimal cladding has helped make this house seem more spacious than it actually is.
The north facing house, being on a corner plot, both north and east elevations are clearly visible from the road. The orientation of the house also facilitates the best quality natural lighting entering the house. The external material palette consists solely of grey and white paint and wood finished louvers. The double-height living room with a large fixed glass window at the upper level helps bring in maximum daylight giving the space a vast and airy feel. The ambiance achieved is warm and positive. The bedrooms have been kept minimalist and with minimal dark colours, thus adding to the illusion of spaciousness. Rich coloured fabrics and cushions with Indian prints help enhance the contemporary Indian feel.
