A Collaboration Between Traditional Elements And Contemporary Look | Modo Designs

“The Terracota house harmoniously brings the outside in. It makes us realise the heightened power of visual connectivity with our outdoor spaces. The humanized and soulful corners of the house have the ability to become a reflection of our innate selves.”- Nishal Sevak(Co-Editor)

This house for a family of four is a part of a gated community on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. The family earlier had their weekend home on this plot where they have now shifted their permanent residence moving away from the densely populated localities of the city. The idea was to have a collaboration between traditional elements and contemporary look.

The house is a ground plus one structure along with a basement which is meant for entertainment purpose. The corner towards the garden is opened up by a verandah which has become the family’s favourite relaxation spot.

The front bay has a more transparent facade connecting the spaces with the garden. The spaces on the ground floor are formed around a central narrow courtyard reflecting a similar nature to the ones in the pol houses of Ahmedabad.

This courtyard stays open to sky for most times of the day and year and consists of an openable fabricated roof to prevent rain and excess heat from coming inside the house.

The ground floor houses the living, dining and kitchen areas along with the parent’s bedroom and daughter’s bedroom.

The upper floor has the master bedroom, son’s bedroom and a guest bedroom along with a huge terrace which overlooks the garden and is used for hosting parties.

The basement is segregated into two zones the tv area and bar which opens up into a small courtyard which brings in the natural light and air in the basement.

The materials used externally are exposed concrete and brick, wooden paneling and door windows, kota stone flooring creating an earthy palette. Internally there is a play of exposed as well as finished surfaces.

All the materials have been locally sourced and have been fused together in a way to keep the spaces connected to the local roots.
