The client was extending his existing house to make it more vaastu compliant & wanted to design the interiors incorporating the vaastu principles.
Spacious and “upscale” interiors in a modest budget.
To ensure that the central void that was required from vaastu perspective unified the space.
To create a single interior volume and also retain the individual functional variations.
We collaborated with the architects’ for the project & and created a linear vertical void cutting the house into two halves. A free-standing staircase at one end, curved tip wood ceiling on the 1st floor and the curved gypsum ceiling on the ground floor were then introduced to unify the space & create a single volume.
The entire house was conceived as a single transparent space with bedrooms as the only opaque elements.
The staircase & its landing, the “tipwood “rafter ceiling extending out into the utility space behind & the entrance porch on the front and the skylight connects the central void with the outside both visually and physically.
On the ground floor the curved gypsum false ceiling in the living, dining & the open kitchen helps to connect the three spaces on either sides of the void. Similarly the clear glass partition in the gymnasium & the TV room on the first floor, wooden staircase along with tipwood rafters expand the central void visually.
Bold colours, wall paper with large motifs & vibrant curtains are used consciously to liven up an overall monochrome interior.
Flooring: Italian Marble on the ground floor, vitrified tiles on first floor;
