BUNGALOW AT MUMBAI
The client is a HNI and wanted to build a lavish & opulent bungalow with a huge double height living room and a big master bedroom with a separate dresser room. These were the only specific requirements given to us. We were given a freehand to develop the design concept with an acceptance to use the gold color in living room as desired by him.
The layout plans of the 4 storied bungalow were laid out with basic principles of vaastu and a prominence given to the double height living room as per the clients requirement which can be seen in the elevation of the bungalow too. The entire material & colour palette for the bungalow is very earthy with use of Indian natural stones like dark multi-coloured stone (Kumbhal Lava) for the façade, leather finished kotah for the steps, tumbled shahabad paving, and natural brown veneers in combination with gold, silver and copper like elements. The main concept of the double height living room is developed around the use of Indian ethnic floral pattern. These concept reflects in the entire bungalow from the compound gate, entrance lobby, along the staircase doors, into living dining, informal seating, entrance foyer of the bedrooms and upto terrace doors. The floral pattern is laser- cut in the veneer and golden laminate is inlayed into the laser- cut pattern to give an effect of golden flowers blooming all around the house. The same floral pattern is gold printed on the glass film and embroidered on the curtains to maintain the overall concept. The golden inlay floral pattern is continued in the ceiling of the entrance foyer of the living room which houses the ductable air- conditioning system and the same panel terminates upwards to form an interesting railing composition of glass and veneer with golden flowers creating a soothing visual to the opulent 900 sq.ft. living room. The main feature of the master- bed is the cork veneered surround which starts from the king size bed, bends upwards towards the ceiling, moves across the ceiling over the bed and then terminates downwards to the floor as the backdrop of T.V. unit . This natural cork- veneered surround is accentuated with oxidised silver painted laser cut zali in acrylic with amoeboid shaped patterns to give an artistic appeal.
