• Aspects of Traditional and Earthy Design with Minute Attention to Details Encompasses this Residence | Hiraya Design Studio

    Brick House is a project located in a street parallel to the very busy 100ft road in Koramangala, Bangalore. The home is a 30 year old structure with a brief renovation that happened 18 years ago on the ground floor. But this time around, there was a need for the entire home to be done up right from the façade in terms of windows and general colour of the façade. Aspects of traditional and earthy design with minute attention to details encompasses this residence.

    Editor’s note : “Embracing a captivating fusion of the past and the present, this house exudes a timeless charm while staying true to its traditional roots. The mustard yellow interiors, complemented by rustic brick and wooden accents, breathe new life into the space while preserving its southern allure. Ingenious touches like banana fibre blinds and repurposed sarees showcase creativity, while vibrant tiles playfully adorn the rooms, adding a touch of eccentricity to the otherwise remarkable abode.” ~ Venessa Thomas (Co-Editor)

    Considering the site located parallel to the very busy 100 ft road in Koramangala and all the noise and hustle you would experience at the outside of the site, the materials used in this space is planned in a way to transform you into an extremely calm, quiet and cosy atmosphere, the moment you step in.

    Unlike how a basic expected result and material to be procured is decided on during the concept stage in any other project, we had to work differently on this one. Our sourcing trip ranged from vising several tile, façade material, furniture and antique stores etc. Once we procured all of the above, we worked backwards by accommodating all of it in our project!

    The few elements that played a major role in creating the aura of the home on the ground floor which we had to carry on to the rest of the home.

    We repurposed old unused sarees of our client in different ways and areas in this project.. the blinds that you see here are the one’s made with a combination of a saree border that we’ve used as blind borders with natural banana fiber in the centre portion. As there are multiple elements in the space already, the blinds that came in at the very end definitely had to make a bold statement but also in the most subtle way!

    We were looking for a permanent solution to a kitchen that was affected by flooding in the area and a stainless kitchen is what we turned to! Let us know what you think.

    The client fell in love with a tile we saw in one of these tile stores which has printed tile inserts in between them. Since we wanted to use them, we planned the rest of the room décor around it.

    We pulled out a combination of green, mustard and pink sarees from the clients wardrobe that were unused and didn’t want to dispose and got it stitched in a pattern to use it as the wardrobe shutters. The borders from the pink saree were combined with banana fiber and converted into blinds.

    The bathroom tiles were kept simple with a row of English tiles used at a 4’level to go with the rest of the room décor.

    The daughter’s bedroom has yellow printed tiles used in patched with a contrasting cream tile in the rest of the areas. The furniture in this room is procured from Jodhpur which is in a distressed finish making the space feel more casual and breezy.

    The wardrobe shutters are made with an arch like profile with cork sheets sandwiched between them which makes for an interesting element in the room. For wardrobe shutters, we have used 3 knobs instead of 1 on each shutter in a yellow colour that would match the yellow on the printed tiles.

    The toilet in this room is a combination of yellow/mustard subway tiles and Spanish tiles in a black and grey combination.

    We have worked out different concept for each room ensuring that they all feel like spaces of a single home when looked at the whole picture. In the guest room, we have used wood as the dominated element and toned them down with three different colours of tiles making a carpet effect around the bed.

    The blinds are a combination of the clients unused sarees again in a blueish tinge to blend in with the blueish green tiles used as flooring.

    All the common areas have an extremely loud patterned tile being the dominating feature of the space. We have converted a cradle into a table top material by mounting them of wood legs and placing a glass countertop on it.

    The sun room has a wood sofa with a really loud yellow upholstery to blend in with the tiles and feel of the space.

    The client wanted to only rectify 2 out of 3 toilets that were completely days functional, change the kitchen shutters that were warped due to water from the floods entering the home and accommodate a gazebo cum meditation area on the terrace.

    During our sourcing trip is when the client changed her mind and decided to do up the interiors of the entire home. Since elements like brick and stone were already present on the ground floor which already dictated the aura of the home, everything had to be planned in a way that would complement these elements.
