Framed House, at Bangalore, India, by Crest Architects

 

Located within a gated community in North Bangalore, the square-shaped plot of this residence abuts the road on southern and western sides and enjoys views of the encompassing greenery. Based on the client’s requirements, our approach was to design a modest house with specific emphasis on natural light and ventilation.

 

 

The design process and choice of materials for construction were influenced by a cost-effective budget. Our approach was to create a compact layout that accommodated the requirements of the client while also establishing a sense of spaciousness to create a balance of connectivity and privacy. The open floor plan consists of a living, dining, kitchen, puja and three bedrooms are spread across two floors.

A semi-open puja adjoining the dining has been designed with a sense of verticality to enhance the volume of the space. The solid wooden railing wrapped around the central staircase adds a dramatic effect to the interiors. The double-height living and dining spaces are opened up to get a view of the landscaped garden and glazed skylights allow ample natural light to infiltrate the open scheme of the house. The southwestern façade was kept almost entirely plain with narrow slit windows to avoid the harsh sun. These windows are accentuated with Sadahalli stone chajjas which frames compelling views of the surrounding landscape.

The exposed concrete finish and white plastered walls induce a subtle ambiance in both the interior and exterior. The building form was developed as an abstraction of cubes with planes extracted along different surfaces to produce an exquisite structure. The striking vertical masses harmonize with the surroundings and articulate the function of the house creating geometric elevations. The rustic character and design language throughout the house is intended to be simple that reflects the lifestyle of the client.

Architecture in the labyrinth of South Asian and  Southeast Asian culture. an article, by NANDINI BISWAS

Rapport in 1969 had stated that “The primary determinants of indigenous architecture of any  place are the culture and climate of that place.” The word culture derived from the Latin word  ‘colore’ which means to tend to the earth and mature, blend in and nurture. These are the same prerequisites we believe architecture in its entire existence should abide by and, as Frank O  Ghery had mentioned, “Architecture should speak of its time and place but yearn for timelessness”; this sheds much light on the para-importance of individuality and uniqueness of place and its impact on the people and culture.  – NANDINI BISWAS
