The Humble House


Architecture and Interior Design of the Bungalow for Mr. Yogesh Patel at Surat

Area: 5360 sq ft (498 sq m)
Year: 2014 (completed)

• This house design is based on the ideologies that the client believes in and is a modern follower of Gandhiji. The architectural feature of this project is a stack of the simple boxes with different materials enclosing various spaces on each other. All these boxes are oriented such to have different views of the outside. The clients aspiration of a very simple house is where we were striven to compile the material palette of kotah stone, form finished concrete, white paint, polished teak wood, granite, glass and aluminium. Kotah stone is well explored in various avatars in this house specially the bathrooms. Every light fixture is customised and fabricated as a unique piece of art by itself. Client being a modern follower of Gandhiji, an attempt is made to capture his ideologies and reflecting them in the art installations in various spaces of this house making it feel their and one of a kind.
