Elements

Niche created in wall of kitchen for storage is smart decision taken during construction stage.

Washroom on second floor with window on exterior wall creation connection Of interiors with exterior.

Customized jaali as element of design

Glass windows & iron pillar as design element

House of Pavilion

Volume study The first & second floor are defined on the same layout considering the same form.

A vertical bar is added to two horizontal bars on the east & west side connecting private & public spaces, a water body while other spaces are introduced on ground floor.

Water is introduced as a thermal regulator to cool the house naturally through evaporative cooling during hot summers & to accentuate the outside inside experience. Entrance is well defined with floating staircase

The volume is defined using vertical and horizontal cuboidal forms throughout using addictive technique .

Material & Color board wood

concrete

yellow tints

Use of minimalistic local materials & conventional building technologies with industrial materials i.e. concrete wall , wood,glass,iron pillar. Very limited color palate widely use white for wall, yellow brownish floor, tint of black & gray & red for highlights throughout residence

Architectural Group: Architecture Paradigm Project Year: 2011 Project Area: 9600 sq. ft Project Type: Residential Project Location: Bangalore, India


Zoning

Clear distinction btw public & private space. The public zone includes drawing, dining and kitchen areas whereas the private zone largely caters to bedroom spaces. The two zones are connected by a movement spine which flows to become the family pavilion in the private part of the house. Degree of privacy increases with floor.

Clearance

Very clear movement throughout the floor apart from central courtyard. There is no enough space for movement for more than one person

Clearance

Very clear movement throughout the floor. No clearance issue at all

(Movement)

There is not much of clearance issue in overall house but, fridge near dinning area creating clearance issue & side tables & corner table in bedroom facing operation clearance issue.

1st floor there is no clearance issue can be traced

(Operational)

Very clear movement throughout the floor. No clearance issue at all

2nd floor there is clearance issue in wardrobe area


Sun Path & Day Lighting

W S

N

E

Residence is planned keeping my mind climatic condition around & capture sunlight efficiently by uses of slant roofs.

The use of jaali help in visual connectivity btw public & private space & also with the exterior helping in capturing day lighting as well.

Overhead windows to Capture sunlight

Overhead windows to capture day lighting

Slant roof, prominent feature of house designed in a way to allow sunlight

Accessibility

Visual accessibility is maintained through jaali windows & deck between private & public places. Also most of the spaces are placed in such a manner that they are connected with water body & atmosphere around.

All the space are planned in such a way that restricted accessibility is created. Position of all the spaces is very apt as per usage

The central courtyard allows for privacy to be maintained at the lower levels while allowing the upper levels to be visually connected with the outside. Use of glass windows serve as medium of visual connectivity too


Spatial Configuration

Need for differing degrees of privacy is explored through two horizontal bars along the north south separated by large open space in-between. Open spaces in the context of traditional Indian houses have always played a crucial role usually seen as extensions of indoor spaces or as outdoor rooms which supported a wide variety of functions. Strong horizontal axis on all floors & vertical axis also. A-symmetry can be seen throughout

PROJECT BRIEF

K.C. Singhal

Radha Singhal

Requirement

The existing residence is not planed as per the desired quality & need of the user appropriately. Thus space requires re-designing in the context of user requirements & wants.

Aim

To shape up the desire of client into their residence space which could be aesthetically & functionally more apt for their usage .

Himanshu Singhal

Mansi Singhal

Method

Since we have to redesign the residence , analysis of the existing space is the very first step taken to understand the pros & cons of the space. It will help in understanding client & their requirement better.

Research

Functional & aesthetical problems in the existing space Requirements of the client Circulation spaces in the house Existing quality of space & desired quality of the space Relationship of the member’ interaction.


DESIGN BRIEF Formal Living Existing

Formal living & dining are clubbed together defining a formal space. It is a L-shaped room helping in segregation of dining & living. The sitting in living is confined to edges of wall. It facilitates seating for 10 people . & there is no gate for entrance of formal space.

Problem

The arrangement of sofa does not allow conversation because the placement of seating in both extreme corner. The side tables are quite bigger than required. The center table is not suitable. It does not have enough space to place cutlery because of its shape.

Solution

The sofa arrangement need to re-configure or the space allocation should be change which allows more furniture layout option & better eye to eye contact conversation

Dining Room Existing

Dining room & formal living are connected to each other placed in l-shape. It provides 8 people seating . One wall of dining has semi enclosure with glass partition & other side of dining is connected with living room. There is no partition between dining & formal living. A wide door opening in front of dining.

Problem

Dining area is very compact. It has no proper circulation space around for serving. Also its hindrance in entrance to formal living because of compact space.

Solution

There must b more space allocated to dining area & also enough of circulation space need to create for serving easily.

Family lounge Existing

It’s a open space in the center of the house with a l-shape couch having 8 people seating. It has a huge square coffee table. There are 2 extra puffy also place on both side of sofa. This space is not rarely used.

Problem

The family lounge is quite big as per the usage of the space. Although t.v. is place in front of couch but it cannot be seen clearly because of the distance. It is far from the master bedroom. The Family lounge can be small & more cozy which enforce family members to use it . T.v. must be placed at clear visible distance. The location of family lounge can be near master bedroom.

Solution

My room Existing

The room has attach bathroom with attached dressing. Dressing is common space for my room & master bedroom connecting both spaces. There is too many cabinets in the room for storage. Study is in-built with wardrobe cabinet.

Problem

There are too many door openings in the room i.e. 3doors. There is no proper ventilation in the room as no window opening. Study area is not comfortable , therefore study is done on bed only.

Solution

A separate dressing area can be created. Study should be defined & re-design. Storage can be smartly planed so that room doesn’t look cluster. More ventilation for the space should be develop.

Master Bedroom Existing

The room has a attach bathroom with attach dressing connect my room. There is shelving over bead for books. Two chairs are placed in the room for extra seating. Room is just in front of entrance.

Problem

There is no proper ventilation in the room . Privacy concern also because gate opening in front of entrance. Lack of proper seating area. No separate dressing area.

Solution

More ventilation need to create. A well defined seating area & book shelf can be created . Opening of the gate should be re-configure.


DESIGN BRIEF Sibling Room Existing

The room is really huge than the required. It has attached washroom, dressing & store. A large study area is defined in one corner of the space. Bed with exaggerated headgear extended till fall ceiling. There are 4 doors. 2 couches are placed for seating.

Problem

The space is really huge. Too many door openings in room i.e 4doors. Store is not used at all. Furniture placement is not appropriate therefore room does not look balanced.

Solution

Instead of segregated spaces within room , a integrated space can be created by placing them smartly. This will help in reducing too many door openings in room as well.

Guest Room Existing

Guest bedroom is on separate floor than other rooms. It has a wardrobe & study space with a complete wall window openings. It has no attach bathroom.

Problem

There is no attach bathroom with guest room. Room get heat up easily because of full wall window openings.

Solution

To have a attached bathroom & reduce window openings.

Kitchen Existing

It is a linear U-shape kitchen. Frosted glass is place on a wall for partial visibility. A small window for ventilation. It is just next to entrance.

Problem

Circulation is not enough for 2people working at same time. Ventilation is not sufficient .

Solution

A larger kitchen space is needed as per requirement. Separate preparation, washing & cooking area can be created. A larger window can be given for ventilation.

Puja Room Existing Proposed

The space for puja room is sufficient. A window panel on the backside proving enough sun lighting Same kind of environment is required to create

Store Room Existing

Store room is compact. It has a small sink within. Too many cabinets

Problem

The place look too dingy because of compact space with too many closed cabinets. It is far away from kitchen

Solution

Store can be connected to kitchen space or near by. & Lighter storage cabinet can be create

Utility Room Existing

The utility room is on the other floor than the other space. Well defined space.

Proposed

Utility room should be placed on the same floor.

• • • •

• •

Using Paper model to understand the space . Understanding the volume of the design . Adding inner walls, partitions & window openings in model in order to understand space quality & degree of enclosure Understand the principle of design like symmetry and balance in the space . Understand the proportion and get the heights right . Having a better visual idea & feel of final model after making this paper model.

Few changes were made on the basis of paper model before proceeding for final model. • • • • • •

Addition of overhead on entrance was done to exaggerate it after study model. Arch at formal lounge entry was not going with other architectural element used throughout the house. Therefore it had to be change. The 2 full wall windows in parents room was becoming a privacy issue. Thus an extra element was added to exterior to resolve the same . The marble wall in between staircase till ground floor height was reducing spatial quality of double height. Therefore wall had to increase till second floor height to emphasize on double height The window opening of kitchen had to relook in order to balance it with other openings. Window opening of sibling room had to work out again considering location of bedroom in south-west , prone to heat. Thus amount of widow opening had to reduce
