Client had a simple and clear brief of 4 BHK Bungalow and was seeking a lifestyle that evolved harmoniously between man and nature. They wanted the house to have a connection with the garden, plenty of natural light, and lively interiors.

As one enters the house, the built form reveals its   framed facade closely.

This concept of frames is introduced with intent   to maintain the privacy of the user.   The planning allows for integrating    a linear parking area. Since the house shares   a common wall with adjoining bungalow on the south, a beautiful garden has been provided in the north.

A hierarchy of three frames create   an interesting mass of volumes.

The ground floor is an exciting and cozy space with prudent openings.  The first frame marks   a refreshing entry to the garden as well as   to the house with double height volume, with fresh views of the garden & lots of natural light and air. One lands into   a vestibule that gives glimpse of the spaces leads to the drawing room.

The drawing room opens to the views of garden and has  a swift connection and a nature inspiration theme. The dining and kitchen space are placed  opposite to each yet allows   significant visual connections with main entry and drawing room as well.

What I love most about this house, is   a stunning family sitting with a huge void space above connecting the ground floor to   the highest ceiling of the house. With an artificial vertical garden in its backdrop, this space becomes even more   appealing and colorful.

This volume creates   a drama of light and shadows through-out the day  across the interiors with   the triple height window. The parents’ bedroom is drawn towards the south and   has its own garden with pergola.

The journey to the upper level happens   through the circulation facilities like  the staircase and a lift, placed towards the south.

The first floor is a brightly lit space   with the natural light striking the passages   that lead to the master and son’s bedroom. The passage overlooks  vertical garden wall &   the family sitting below. The master bedroom expresses   warmth of the wood and the combination of bronze mirror   with white MCM cladding material and   its significantly large size allows   visual connections with the ground floor entrance and the garden below.

The Good, the Bad and the Aesthetic - Bhopal

The Good, the Bad and the Aesthetic

This essay delves into how municipal corporations envision creating Western cities (instead of responding to the Indian context) and end up creating cities that only appear to work, instead of actually being more socially inclusive, dynamic and publicly active. The Smart Cities Mission then caters only to the rich and this becomes evident in not just the visuals they use, but also the manner in which they describe their vision of a World Class Infrastructure. This essay by Avani Mittal is amongst the shortlisted essays.
