Private Residence Ahmedabad
- blocher partners
In the South Bhopal district on the western edge of the Indian metropolis of Ahmedabad, the beating heart of the burgeoning Federal State of Gujarat, the architects built an unusually atmospheric home for a family of entrepreneurs. Location, floor plan and use of space in the 1,800 square-meter mansion are inspired by the Indian teachings.
The facade of the luxurious villa is made of exposed concrete, natural stone and wood to harmonically combine traditional Indian components with modern architecture. Wooden shading elements offer indirect illumination and, at the same time, set a design statement. Additionally, the shadowing with cantilevered lamellas preserves the energy balance inside the building.
The interior materials are consistent with the outside: an arrangement of concrete, dark wood and a natural cleft stone made from Jura marble. This material mixture in combination with furniture in light colours makes the living room elegant and classy while creating a re-laxing and comforting ambience. The interior conveys a feeling of warm hospitality and yet fits the modern style of the building. The house also includes several private patios, where the home owners can rest and let go off the day.
