Overview

A luxurious 11,000 sq ft bungalow in a gated community in Vadodara is designed by Shailesh Parikh in a largely neutral colour palette, while using a contemporary vocabulary.

Goals

The heart of the house is the cantilevered staircase, using MS for the treads, glass and wood. The ceiling of the corridor leading off from the lift is an intricate combination of POP and Cebu sheets. Drawing the eye upwards, it has a three dimensional, sculptural effect, incorporating concealed lighting within the hexagonal shapes created by its design.

Process

The home theatre cum lounge has an entire wall covered in POP circles of 3 inch diameter, their layout recalling the raised bumps of Braille. These create an interesting sciography, which varies depending on which lights are turned on. The ceiling is in a burnt-look veneer, while dark grey leather sofas are perfect to sink into. Connected to this room, an external spiral staircase winds its way to the terrace.
