Interior Design - Apte House at Pune, by Sanjeev and Mita Joshi Architects 1
Rooms connect with the outdoors through this sitout

 

This 1800 sq. ft house was renovated to give a feel of a weekend retreat. This Pune residence is composed of living spaces that blend into one another – as well as the outdoors – seamlessly. Designed to cater to the client’s extended family and friends, the design strives to create a sense of tranquility within the house; a large living room acts as the focal point– with fenestrations providing views in all directions – and flows naturally into the backyard through a shaded wrought iron enclosure opening into a small garden.

Spatial unity has been achieved by using a neutral and earthy black-brown-white colour palette and uniform flooring throughout the house, with strategic pops of warm colours in the master bedroom and the outdoor seating enclosure to lend them vibrance and emphasis. Adding to this effect are custom-made white-on-black calligraphy panels on the terracotta wall of the sit-out, made by Sanjeev Joshi himself. The furniture in the house follows the same colour theme, with subtle differences in the tint of the wood used lending warmth to the spaces, with earthen colours used for accenting.

A wide terrace adjoining the Master bedroom also opens via a large window into the bathroom, providing an interesting view from the private space and creating a leisurely atmosphere.

Punctuated by skylights, large windows and multiple open spaces, the residence is a great example of the design philosophy of Sanjeev and Mita Joshi.

The architectural invocation project 07, Bijoy Ramachandran, by SEED, A P J Abdul Kalam School of Environmental Design, Kochi

What architectural values do drawings convey? – Bijoy Ramachandran
The Architectural Invocation Project, by SEED, is essentially a campaign of hope towards a more meaningful future for architecture and design. It attempts to articulate critical questions concerning the academics and practice of Architecture through significant practitioners in the country. The extremely short duration of the video bite makes it both challenging and absorbing, thereby presenting itself as small packets of wisdom. As a new school, seed will attempt to assimilate these into an organic academic spirit which is beneficial for the students, parents and the peers.

Hush Café, at Hyderabad, by D2dArchitects

Hush Café, at Hyderabad, by D2dArchitects

Masked by the concrete jungle of Madhapur in Hyderabad. The Hush cafe is an off-beat sight to its contrasting surroundings. Nestled within the lanes of a corporate and residential neighborhood, this cafe beams warmth that one seeks to experience after a tiring day at work or a quick hangout session with friends over the weekend. The location of this recreational spot in the city is expedient to the ease of access for its users. The Hush Cafe is creating its niche in the conglomerate of cafes scattered in the locality. – D2d Architects
