    A CONTEMPORARY BRICK HOUSE IN MYSURU | ARCHITECTURE PARADIGM

    Contemporary brick house , located in Mysore city in a municipal layout the site measures 50 X 80 feet with the shorter side facing the road along the southern edge.

    An L-shaped planform helps us organize the diverse programmatic concerns of a house for a family of four which is an amalgamation of function and desires; individual vs collective, public vs private, formal vs informal, immediacy vs slowness, largeness vs intimate, openness vs security etc. The shorter arm along the east-west direction houses the public spaces whereas the longer arm along the north-south direction over two levels houses the more private needs of the house.The L-shaped plan also helped us appropriate the unbuilt into an identifiable private rear courtyard or the outdoor room and the transitional forecourt addressing the street. The private courtyard can be seen as an anchor around which the house works. These spaces extend out into this outdoor room which is treated as a pleasure garden punctuated with water, trees, and decks encouraging informal engagement with the natural.

    BRICK HOUSE DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM TRADITIONAL KERALA ARCHITECTURE | KAMAT & ROZARIO ARCHITECTURE

    The design developed from the client’s brief, which was to have a modern house inspired by the family’s roots in Kerala, India.We looked towards traditional palace construction of Kerala for inspiration.

    We noticed a few key features that most of these structures portrayed, such as – the veranda that wrapped the living spaces all around, the appearance of a heavy masonry base on the ground floor, with thick arches and carved columns and a first floor which appeared to be lighter in terms of materials and overall treatment.

    The Agraharam House was designed for Srikanth and Gita who were looking for a traditional South-Indian ‘agraharam’ house, well ventilated with courtyards. This was the design cue that was taken forward in Srikanth House.

    A traditional agraharam house is a long rectangular temple street house stacked around the four streets that bound the temple. These street-fronted houses have a deep social and cultural value in their organisation of space – being narrow and linear, the hierarchy of rooms range from public areas up front to the more private family spaces deeper in.

    Design Work Group has completed a family home in the Indian port city of Surat, which features a gently undulating brick facade that offers shade from the sun.

    The building’s location at the intersection of two roads informed the architects’ decision to divide it into two contrasting zones – one encased in concrete and the other in brick.“The site is a part of the residential area on a corner plot approached from the road on the west edge,” explained the studio, which is based locally. “The layout was organised so that the private zone was at the inner side, and public zone at the front.”
