Casa Forma at Haldwani, Uttarakhand, by Renesa Architecture Design Interiors 1

Set against the foothills of the Himalayas – Casa Forma is a residence deconstructed in volume to reveal moments that elevate the notion of ‘home‘ . Providing unobstructed views through perforated volumes that layer up to form the front façade , Casa Forma is an open land based structure on the downward slop terrain with the south facing facade view.

Concept Visuals

Casa Forma derives its name from the Italian word “Forma” meaning the form of the existing surroundings , which in this case being the Himalayan range helped the architects replicate the layering of the existing mountain typography through its volume and extensive horizontal line play in its Facade design ideology. The Floating Elevational walls create an immediate impact through its monumentality and isolation from the main volume of the structure to provide transparency and protection as well as add to the aesthetical value of this residence .

The House is a radical exercise of horizontal architectural line play against the natural vertical peak ranges set as a wallpaper to this site. The emptiness between the volumes and the slabs creates a beautiful design rhythm and improved lighting and ventilation throughout the day. Under the layout , the house has been made with two programmatic boxes , the ground being the public interface zone with a 2 room suite for the owners and the top floor plate being for the services , gym , tv , playrooms and another 2 suites located at the extremities to provide flexibility in terms of natural light and air to the rooms.

The Interiors are made of low and solid wood furniture and the layout of the spaces leaves enough space for free circulation between the furniture and the panels and allows for an individualized reading of the space along with its pieces.
Casa Forma’s layered assembly provides an architectural understanding to make way for green pockets and air corridors that capitalize on the rich environment of the existing foothills. Through a new typology of residential architecture, Casa Forma hopes to become an example in the understanding of growing cityscapes in the foothills.

The Atrium Project, at Pune, Maharashtra, by OHA STUDIOS

The Atrium Project, at Pune, Maharashtra, by OHA STUDIOS

We were approached by the developers of this mixed-use project to design the interiors of a commercial atrium, residential lobbies and common spaces. The developers were quite keen on exploring something that was different from the traditional atrium designs.

This 2500sqft Atrium – a double-height space in the commercial complex, was the blank canvas that we were to design for. As the entire volume was very rigid and orthogonal with shops at the entry level & offices at the first level, our design concept was to soften this rigidity. Accordingly, we introduced fluid forms into this bounding box. – OHA STUDIOS

In Nature // Sanvina in the Sun!, at Mechkarwadi, near Karjat, Maharashtra, India, by Cluster One Creative Solutions Pvt. Ltd.

We believe that, as architects and designers, our role is exceptionally interim in nature. And by “in nature”, we mean both, the inherent characteristic of a person, as well as the collective physical world around us. After all, for all the glorification we grant to ourselves, we are, eventually, only a means to an end which will exist long after we are gone. Fully aware, and accepting of this interplay of the past, present, and future, we have come to understand that everything we do, is going to interact differently with the evolving sensibilities of the people, the landscape, and the weather, at that point of time, on that given day. – Cluster One Creative Solutions Pvt. Ltd.
