• A Bungalow Style Home Characterized By Rooms Flooded With Natural Light | Raheja Creations

    Our client envisioned a timeless bungalow style home characterized by expansive rooms flooded with natural light and ventilation. With a deep-rooted belief in Vaastu principles, the client emphasized adherence to these principles in the design of their home. Additionally, the client expressed a desire for the residence to exude grandeur, commanding attention within its surroundings.

    Mediterranean Style of Architecture

    The design concept embraces the timeless elegance of the Mediterranean style architecture. However, honoring the client’s deep-seated belief in Vastu principles, the concept of “shoonya” is central to the design philosophy. “Shoonya” dictates that the central-most zone of the building must remain unoccupied, ensuring a sense of openness and balance.

    To adhere to this principle, the central axis of the building is intentionally left vacant. Thus serving as a spacious lobby area that acts as the heart of the home. This central void not only fosters a sense of connection and continuity throughout the residence but also facilitates direct visual engagement.

    Thoughtfully Curated Spaces

    Furthermore, all other spaces within the home are thoughtfully connected via this central axis, promoting fluid movement and interaction between different areas. To enhance the sense of grandeur befitting the client’s vision, double-height spaces and architectural elements are strategically integrated, imparting a majestic ambiance to the bungalow’s interior.

    The design process for the bungalow began with a focus on creating a grand entrance. The main entryway features an impressive double-height porch towering at 22′, designed to provide a sense of grandeur upon arrival. Embracing a European aesthetic, the porch boasts a gracefully arched ceiling adorned with an exquisite chandelier. It is furthermore, elevating the welcoming ambience.

    From the entrance, attention is drawn to the foyer, located in a separate block and clad in natural stone to accentuate the sense of arrival. This foyer serves as the gateway to the double-height lobby, leading seamlessly into the spacious drawing room.

    The ground floor layout is meticulously planned to accommodate essential living spaces, including a master bedroom suite, a guest room, a puja room, and a well-connected kitchen and dining area.


    Intelligent subdivision creates distinct zones in the kitchen, including the main kitchen, washing area, and spice kitchen, with direct access from the outside lawn for the convenience of household staff.

    Master Bedroom

    The master bedroom features a dressing area with dual access doors leading to the ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobes. Every room and lobby on the ground floor opens out into verdant green zones, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces and fostering a harmonious connection with nature.

    Centrally air-conditioned, the bungalow ensures year-round comfort, while the generous 12′ slab height imparts a sense of grandeur to the interior spaces.

    The second floor features a home theatre and gym area, dedicated to recreational activities. Separate servant and utility zones at the rear of the second floor ensure privacy and security for the residents.
