Located in Ludhiana, a major town of Punjab, the design language of the Accord House is largely an exploration of a visual of clean magnificent form with the main material being the concrete, in dark coloration, with a texture that extends to the wooden elements complemented with the landscaping. It has been designed in a way where the grand interior resonates with the contemporary façade of the residence. A variation of steel screens, louvers and a combination of granite and wood are integrated with the elevation of the project. - Planet Design and Associates

Accord House, at Ludhiana, Punjab, by Planet Design and Associates 1

Located in Ludhiana, a major town of Punjab, the design language of the Accord House is largely an exploration of a visual of clean magnificent form with the main material being the concrete, in dark coloration, with a texture that extends to the wooden elements complemented with the landscaping. It has been designed in a way where the grand interior resonates with the contemporary façade of the residence. A variation of steel screens, louvers and a combination of granite and wood are integrated with the elevation of the project.

The classic interior of the residence is planned over three floors with the built-up area of approximately 650 sq.mtrs. The ground floor accommodates the drawing room along with living and dining areas that has been tastefully designed with handpicked furniture from Arte Furniture in New Delhi and lighting from HYBEC. The powder room, on the ground floor, employs contrast as its prime feature and is fitted with handpicked fixtures, sitting well against a darker background, and handcrafted flooring from Tecnografica. The kitchen area is combined with the utility space which adds a volume to whole space and carves out the required storage areas. With two bedrooms on the ground floor, this floor also accommodates service spaces such as parking and carwash area. The guest bedroom and the home theatre are designed on the first floor, along with the son’s room, while the top floor houses the servants.

The stairway leading to the first floor is an interesting feature that has been highlighted with a glass railing lined with hardwood and a chrome outer stringer. The double height stairwell features a striped ceiling with alternate bright and dark bands that lends a proactive accent to the space and adds to the relaxed tones of the interior of the house.

The master bedroom, on the ground floor, is sophisticated and soothing with soft textures and colours, clean lines and modern furniture pieces picked to resonate with the personalities of the occupants of the room. The lighting has been carefully positioned to add a sense of calm to the whole space. The master bathroom feels like an extended design language of the space with materials and fixtures chosen to exhibit splendour and opulence.

The design of the son’s room, on the first floor, has an experimental approach with wall cladding in different materials and artworks and bright use of colour in the furniture that helped to elevate the character of the room. On the contrary, the guest room, on the same floor, has been engulfed entirely in shades of beige, making the occupants feel at home.

A rich, warm feel has been incorporated in the home theatre, located on the first floor of the lavish Accord House. Acoustically treated walls and an intelligent, automated lighting system complete the entire look of the space.

Traditional Kerala homes are rich in memories; of the long-forgotten smell of the first rain, the sound of raindrops falling in the courtyard, people sitting and conversing around it, the feeling of the warmth of mud walls and wood,  the coziness of spaces;  one may find him or herself drifting into their nostalgic memories of yesteryears every once in a while. – Finder Studio
