• A Powerful and Expressive Microtopping Against the Zealous Wood and Cane | Jetsons

    Jetsons is a Mumbai-based design studio, who recently completed interiors of an Ahmedabad abode where Microtopping is the hero material.

    The site is in the west of the city, Prahladnagar, one of the most prominent and exclusive areas of Ahmedabad. It is a developed locality with a mix of residential and commercial projects, offering a walk-to-work concept to its residents. The inspiration of the house comes from traditional homes of Ahmedabad and has a vibrant and modern look.

    Editor’s Note: The greys and browns of the post-modern contemporary home amalgamate into one another like two halves of a whole, connected yet divided. The curved concrete walls visually soften the sharp lines of cane furniture. One can feel the striking balance of contrasts while the hints of green distract the gaze. The seamless blend of colours and materials creates a soothing, raw aesthetic—the perfect Yin and Yang. – Gopika Pramod

    A Powerful and Expressive Microtopping Against the Zealous Wood and Cane | Jetsons

    Talking about the design process, the client & his mother were always keenly involved with the design process and especially the details. Certainly, they always trusted us with our take towards a post-modern contemporary Ahmedabad house. says Jeet, principle designer of Jetsons.

    About ‘Curves, Concrete & Lines’ :

    We were lucky with the clients as they came to us with an empty slate. And they did not have a specific brief or mood for this project. The only brief given was to create a space which says ‘home’ the moment you step into the space, says the principle designer, Jeet. Hence, the residence is an amalgamation of three major elements; Curve, Concrete and Lines. These elements repeat throughout the house in various mediums in regards to material palettes, texture, edges and finishes.

    Curves replace the perpendicular edges with soft rounded surfaces. In contrast to concrete Microtopping, used as a base material, that ties the house together. And lastly, the repeating line detail functions as a binding element throughout the house.

    Soft edges, rounds and curves are the main elements that help to pack the space with warmth and leisure. Along with microtopped concrete, cane, and wood of different textures on the ceilings, walls and furniture pieces, show the relation of materials in various forms.

    Besides the gorgeous material mélange, major highlight is the sliding-folding partition screen in the living area. It separates the living and dining space into two areas when needed. Again continuing the material pallet of concrete Microtopping, teak wood, cane, and fluted glass.

    The screen is a folding system of interconnected collapsible partition systems which can be arranged in six or more combinations. And the apartment also has traditional materials integrated with modern contemporary furniture. Besides the traditional and modern material mix, Olive, Nude, Yellow and Grey are the four prime colors of each room. Eventually, congealing with teak wood and birch ply to create a complimenting neutral color scheme. 

    The key idea of this curvy concrete apartment is to create a flow-through in diverse spaces of materials. Additionally with furniture which complement each other in a minimalistic manner and bring the space to life.

    One of the most crucial aspects of this project was the execution of the collapsible sliding-folding door system. The 9′ ft. height of these humungous shutters with added fluted glass, computed the challenge of its movement but our main man and head carpenter Mr. Suresh Gajjar made it possible like a piece of cake.

    This set of doors separate the dining and living areas, and as it unfolds itself, it displays a tease of the dining space through the fluted glass. The blend of teak wood and cane with its integrated detailing along with the vertical flutes and a few open windows, makes it a highlight of our house.

    Soft edges, lines and curves are the main elements that help to pack the space with warmth and leisure. So, concrete, cane and wood of different textures are on the ceilings, walls and furniture pieces to show the relation of materials in various forms. The apartment also has textures like cane and fluted glass integrated with modern contemporary furniture pieces. Consequently, the ceiling is in its raw form of concrete Microtopping slabs with matte black light fixtures. Some walls are in a palette of grey in concrete finish, whereas, others are in white as a simple paint finish. The half-rounded flutes and curved surfaces are the key features of the wall which deliberately repeats throughout the house.

    The design and aesthetic inspiration was from a typical old-school iconic Indian furniture. However, it has a touch of post-modernism to it with the play of different materials. In addition, each piece of furniture depicts the amount of time and detail spent behind it, from the way it looks to the way each texture feels, everything had a thought. The idea behind such intimate detailing was to create a home where the furniture and the materials used would not only define the given space as home but it would make it feel like a home.
