Louvered House

We wanted to make a bold statement via architecture of this house. To achieve the bold look we have gone for material like exposed concrete and lots of metal. Also this house is fully automated house where everything runs on programming. Client being in the same field helped us a lot in that matter. The site is located in an old society and surrounded by closely placed adjacent houses. It was critical to achieve privacy without compromising on big size openings. That’s how we came up with idea of louvers. Louvers appear as the most imported facade element. Now why we call it moving louvers because these louvers work on automation and can be rotated on its axis up to 90* degree. Louvers are – 12’ in height, 20 in numbers. 

We have opted for an ultra-modern color scheme wherein variations of grey are used for ceiling, walls and flooring in combination with tone of white American oak for furniture. The furniture is functional and minimalistic with an elementary and swank appeal. We really wanted to get an artistic feel in the house where one can enjoy the beauty of natural light and its shadows and sciography. Adding bold art works at different places. The most enhancing element of the space is the “that red dot” (we call it) art work installation on the double height staircase wall which we think is the heart of the space.  The art work is inspired by nature in a very abstract form.
