Designed as an ode to old Bangalore Architecture, this residence adopts the traditional use of the courtyard as the heart of the home and weaves contemporary details to express and allow for a modern way of living. All levels of the C-shaped home connect to the generous courtyard for a strong tie with the outdoors. The roofs interspersed with skylights creates a play of light within the space. The home begins on the first floor with arrival onto a large raised garden, thereby increasing the privacy of the home from the road.
The interiors is themed around a vintage modern style – adorned in abundant wood to bring in warmth and luxury. Furniture and quirky mood lighting add to the intimacy with a sandstone feature that holds the central courtyard space together. A variety of spaces such as the internal courtyard, outdoor greens, a mini bar counter, pool and spa on the terrace are detailed to accommodate for varied layers of entertaining.
