Every now and then, an architect meets a project that makes him/her pause and think. To question every sinew of design ethos adopted so far and to introspect what’s learnt to unravel the unlearnt. The Naked House has been one such project redefining minimalism.

Don’t we continually strive to achieve balance in every aspect of our living? As designers, we mention luxury, minimalism and trends. Studio TAB makes for an immersive experience for minimalism. Perpetually expanding our thought processes and appreciation for finer things in life, is how the Naked House welcomes you. Cast-in situ furniture along the structural elements, zooming in to asymmetric knothole handles in the tv unit to the live-edge wood headboard are not just adaptive measures towards attaining a minimalist living space but mindful stripping away, focusing on more important matters and accepting alternatives. Minimalism has in fact brought about profound joy in simplifying life, personalizing experiences and to detox the currently hectic lifestyles. Afterall, we can only shrug off possessions sans grief if it’s in abundance, or perhaps Abundance Is the Cause of Grief? Untangling life with immersing in qualitative living and originality creates a blissful simplicity that Gives Back More Than It Takes Away.~ Yamini Vaswani (Editor)
We were commissioned by a young NRI family to transform their Bangalore home into a simple and minimalist holiday home.
Minimalist design has always been a subjective narrative. We wanted to explore what really defines minimalism.
By stripping off every pretentious layer, every embellishment, every unwanted facade that shields the need; we unravelled the state of spatial nakedness.
A home so distinctly stark and monotonous, and yet a home in every sense. Of a palette devoid of colors, of wood that is in its most bare form and a naked layout consisting of only the essentials.
Nakedness reveals the brutally honest nature of the design in its purest form with nothing in disguise. A paradoxical project where one had to maneuver through complexities to deliver the simple. And simple surely has been most satisfying.
