    (455 Votes)

    Mr. Shah’s residence is an adaptation of a minimal house design theme by Studio VPA in Diwalipura, Vadodara. 

    Editor’s Note: Blue is the color of joy, something that is highlighted in this residence at the entrance itself. The ceiling roofed above the living room extends its range of creative endeavors. The combination of grey, white, and blue sets a defined tone. The staircase is poised as an expressive unit that breaks the singular identity of the themes and colors.

    Minimal house designs have been one of the trending topics for the past few years, Studio VPA seems to have adopted the theme for Mr. Shah’s residence. The design of the entire home is based on individual beliefs that reflect the client’s unique identity and bring forth the ethical essence of Mr. Shah’s style.


    The main entrance door is a major highlight of the house including a safety door in a striking blue color. Where, the safety door consists of a sonic pattern jail, and the main door has a long handle to give a different look. Both the doors are in PU finish to further emphasize the blue color and to make it stand out from other elements in the surroundings.


    Step into the vibe of relaxation with our stunning contemporary living room’s neutral color palette makes this space a pleasant experience. To add some touch of color, we utilized the main door’s blue color perfectly for this minimal house’s interiors. Further, we added a simple pattern to the ceiling in an exposed textured impression that offers a contrast in the minimal living room. 

    Also, the use of sleek contemporary hanging lights makes the space elegant, and adding small elements like customized frames made by our staff, and planters makes spaces lively. 

    Additionally, a simple TV unit design in the living room played in a combination of lower drawers with grooves on it, again in PU finish. It also consists of a simple and minimal sofa set with a modern center table design.


    The Puja area is quite simple as well as minimal. Lower drawers for storage and lamps give life to this beautiful space.


    The kitchen is designed in a clean, vivid space using the color white and contrasting it against greys. Again, in PU finish, that is easy to clean and scratch-free. 


    This versatile kitchen is used for online classes. This is a stylish focal point compared to other areas. It has lower storage in PU finish. A big opening to the sun source and adding some elements like lamps, and frames.  


    Coming to the dining area, the area was not enough, so we decided to keep a round table with only two chairs. Along with a metal partition to keep it simple and clear yet contemporary look for the house. 


    The dog-leg staircase has been carefully designed and detailed and this area is the major focal area of the whole house. In the staircase, the kaditappa staircase was planned from the beginning of the project which was in exposed concrete RCC in impressions. 

    The steps have teak wood treads and RCC texture finish risers with a glass railing. In addition, the back wall lights highlight the decor frames on it and louvers on the wall attract the visitors the most.

    Additionally, the OTS is an excellent source of natural light, right up to the staircase. We gave it a new vision by using cinnamon jails and glass. The center of attraction is this customized metal chandelier which is right underneath the open-to-sky skylight.  


    A careful space, to escape from the humdrum of daily life, filled with custom pieces to continue the minimal house design theme. The bed, bedside tables, and a playful palette were chosen by the architect and client for the furniture of this room.
