The ground floor is an exciting and cozy space with prudent openings.  The first frame marks   a refreshing entry to the garden as well as   to the house with double height volume, with fresh views of the garden & lots of natural light and air. One lands into   a vestibule that gives glimpse of the spaces leads to the drawing room. - Shayona Consultant

URBAN FRAME HOUSE, at AHMEDABAD, by Shayona Consultant 1

Client had a simple and clear brief of 4 BHK Bungalow and was seeking a lifestyle that evolved harmoniously between man and nature. They wanted the house to have a connection with the garden, plenty of natural light, and lively interiors.

As one enters the house, the built form reveals its   framed facade closely.

This concept of frames is introduced with intent   to maintain the privacy of the user.   The planning allows for integrating    a linear parking area. Since the house shares   a common wall with adjoining bungalow on the south, a beautiful garden has been provided in the north.

A hierarchy of three frames create   an interesting mass of volumes.

The ground floor is an exciting and cozy space with prudent openings.  The first frame marks   a refreshing entry to the garden as well as   to the house with double height volume, with fresh views of the garden & lots of natural light and air. One lands into   a vestibule that gives glimpse of the spaces leads to the drawing room.

The drawing room opens to the views of garden and has  a swift connection and a nature inspiration theme. The dining and kitchen space are placed  opposite to each yet allows   significant visual connections with main entry and drawing room as well.

What I love most about this house, is   a stunning family sitting with a huge void space above connecting the ground floor to   the highest ceiling of the house. With an artificial vertical garden in its backdrop, this space becomes even more   appealing and colorful.

This volume creates   a drama of light and shadows through-out the day  across the interiors with   the triple height window. The parents’ bedroom is drawn towards the south and   has its own garden with pergola.

The journey to the upper level happens   through the circulation facilities like  the staircase and a lift, placed towards the south.

The first floor is a brightly lit space   with the natural light striking the passages   that lead to the master and son’s bedroom. The passage overlooks  vertical garden wall &   the family sitting below. The master bedroom expresses   warmth of the wood and the combination of bronze mirror   with white MCM cladding material and   its significantly large size allows   visual connections with the ground floor entrance and the garden below.

An elevated garden facing west has been provided   on the first level, being enclosed directly by   the highest façade frame,    it becomes a double heighted garden. The son’s bedroom towards the south   displays a blend of dark earthen elements.

On the second floor, a guest bedroom and a compact leisure room is placed adjoining to a vast elevated party lawn.   This terrace garden gives the users a chance to get closer to   the ultimate height of uppermost frame.

Combination of stone, wood, Italian marble for flooring across the house .and   the contemporary furniture pieces, add luxury and comfort to the spaces. his Urban Frame House is a   unique combination of   spatial planning;    extensive spaces and  expressive lights,,   helped visualized   the dreams of our client.

The Bombay House, at South Mumbai, by RC Architects

The Bombay house is a unique typology that has existed since the colonial times. The space is restored and redesigned to its true time but creating opportunities and interactions for today’s use. A unique blend of time and function. The sequence of spaces within the house forms a loop. One enters the house in a library and then moves through a verandah to reach the living spaces. A passage from the living room leads to the bedrooms and the kitchen. Through the bedroom one again reaches the verandah that completes the loop. The design interventions intersect within this sequence enhancing the experience and creating opportunities within the house. – RC Architects

TIGER TIGER is part of a series on animals and their implied symbolic narrative appropriated politically and socially.

Conserving The Commissariat Building, DR DN Road, by Vikas Dilawari

Mumbai was the first city in India to have heritage regulations to protect its living heritage. This listing and the corresponding regulations binding these precincts would also protect these old areas from burdening the fragile infrastructure with high-rise buildings. These precincts, more than individual structures, puts forward each city’s uniqueness. Heritage awareness is certainly increasing on paper with more nominations of World Heritage Site ensembles. But in reality, its protection on the ground is decreasing at an alarming rate.
