Rai House Residential Interiors by Lovekar Design Associates

Home > Winners > #46045


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Rai House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Interiors

INSPIRATION:
A lot of negative elements were tackled to make the place livable. A tight linear layout, bad light & ventilation inspired us to open up the space with a central court for light & enlivening the space. The single flight staircase, added a design feature by its linear, textured surface. The living room opens onto the landscaped area through a glass door & brings in natural light. The landscaped area with wooden pergola connects with the scale of the living room & extends into the space beyond.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project was the redesign of a 30 year old row house, unused for many years. The long and narrow dimensions of the home - 41'x 17' needed to be balanced. The narrow dimensions led to a linear layout of living and dining areas.The interiors were opened up by removing unnecessary walls, designing light seating and using elements that connected the entire space into the landscaped open space.The unsightly central duct area underwent a transformation to emerge as a compact double height court.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The linear space consisting of the living, dining and kitchen on ground level is connected by the central court, which also helps in connecting these spaces with the floor above. This floor has 2 cozy bedrooms connected through a bridge that overlooks the lively central court. A single flight staircase connecting the ground floor to the first floor accommodates a powder room along with required storage space. A circular staircase connects to the terrace, which houses a semi covered party zone.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2015 and finished in August 2015 in Vashi, Navi Mumbai. India

TAGS:
Indian, Contemporary, Tropical, Landscape, Redesign, Linear, Colourful

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As the row house is 500m away from the Arabian Sea, there was a problem of water seepage through the floor and walls, requiring a permanent solution. The walls are waterproofed & clad in black granite with wooden strips to break the monotony & add warmth. The cladding also became a ledge wall for artifacts. Warm tropical colors were selected considering the art installations & the brightness required. The front facade & the landscape were blended with the interiors to give a cohesive character.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge in this project was a peculiar one - we had to design a comfortable residence in a space that was totally disproportional and linear in character - 41 feet x 17 feet with 4 feet gone in the staircase gave us only 41 feet x 13 feet which was very linear and difficult to manage. The central court which was carved out of a previously unsightly duct did the trick and opened up the central space by adding light and life by use of a Frangipani tree.
