Residential Farm House Project
Our client,a real estate developer, is fond of taking holidays in tropical places like bali and singapore. for this project, our inspiration is we wanted to create a home that would make him feel like he was relaxing at a leisurely resort in a tropical country.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
On a large three-acre riverside plot of agricultural land near surat,
we have created a large 12,000 sq ft farmhouse that serves as a tropical escape for its owners.
the story of designing a farmhouse, that brings mood with comfort. each and every space designed is created with minute details and giving life to every corner of the structure through the tropical-style running around. the m.s. fins surrounding the entire structure is made of iron, which gives a rustic look that adds beauty and culture to the space. materials like indian black stone, m.s. fins, white texture paint, mangalore tiles, and wood make the exteriors of the house a visible treat to the viewers.
the farmhouse is a three-stored structure crowned with a prominent
gabled roof. the roof is an important element as the gabled design has
strong associations with tropical architecture.
Another key element in this house which create a resort like ambience, was the elevated second storey swimming pool with its floating gazebo.

Designing tropical houses in surat,india is the challenge for us so we study the balinese beach side houses and resorts to create home that would make client feel like he was relaxing at leisurely resort in a tropical country.
"The pool is the focal point of the entire structure". our client has a penchant for the sea-facing resorts and so we designed everything peripheral to the pool but structurally posed a challenge.
We wanted to make the swimming pool on the second storey for the sake of privacy.however, being so closed to the river meant that the ground water level was quite high,which make excavation difficult.
Thanks to the structural engineers, we were able to have the swimming pool just as we envisioned it.
