One of our highly published projects, Ishavasyam, was in the working stage when Mr. Khare, their soon-to-be neighbor, approached us. He was very keen on doing something rustic but not raw. The only thing they were firm on was bricks and no wooden flooring. Being an art enthusiast, the owner agreed upon the play of brick and clay jalis in subtle ways. Thus, the concept was narrowed down to design a minimalist home with rustic material palette and the play of brick and clay jalis, with not more than two color tones.

“An earthy symphony of brick and clay jaalis with mixed color assortments has an impressive and homely quality to it. With custom-made impressionable furniture, J Architects have evoked the feeling of attachment one wants in a home, through their design sense.” – Nishal Sevak (Co-Editor)
Each area has a different vibe. You will be welcomed at the minimalist entrance by nine clay men-inspired art pieces crafted by a local artisan with a backdrop of RCC textured wall. Layered with calming colors, earthy walls and custom-made rustic furniture, the living room and dining room share a very similar vibe.
The cactus green colored sofa layered with mustard yellow cushions add a fresh hint of color to the space. All other furniture is customized in ply and wicker, the dining with Corian table top.
This space blends beautifully with the single-toned kitchen finished with acrylic sheets and black lacquered glass shutters with black profiles.
Since there was no provision for a Pooja room, the store room connected to the kitchen was converted into a Pooja room. Its entry was shifted to the front side after diverting the main electrical line which ran through the front wall. The glass door was then flushed with the fluted paneling on the wall. The mandir console finished with a Corian top was given an aesthetic backdrop of Kalakarihaath wallpaper.
The owner wished to take the brick concept to his bedroom as well, hence, the master bedroom has a very strong identity. Following the no wooden flooring brief, the existing wood finish tiles were changed to RCC texture finished ones.
Complimenting the exposed brick walls, the study, dressing unit and TV ledge were interestingly designed with a metal framework and zero wall paneling.
Collaborating with yet another local artisan, the striking wicker bed was made to order and surprisingly painted grey to maintain the color palette. The wardrobe was designed similarly
The main idea for their son’s room was to make it timeless yet playful enough for his age. After many samples, a perfect light blue color was finalized.
The study space has a fascinating display wall with storage. Keeping it single-toned, the wardrobe, the TV ledge and the study unit are all painted in the same blue color but the backdrop is RCC textured continuing the primary concept.
The two guest bedroom were briefed to be different from the ongoing theme and so different material palettes can be witnessed.
One room is designed in a rich olive green tone with monochromatic kitkat highlighter tiles for the headboard. The other can be seen in bold black satin paint and veneer finish making it stand out.
