Noted architect Manoj Patel is known for his incredible skill in designing huge houses on smaller plots.
It is quite unbelievable that this spacious house that has an area of 2100 sqft stands in a quaint 2.25 cents plot. Even though the house is in Vadodara, it is an amazing model that can be recreated anywhere.
The house owned by Vaibav Gandhi has been designed to suit the unique layout of the plot and the interests of the family too. The elevation designed in the contemporary style oozes elegance and panache.
The structure is rectangular to complement the rectangular shape of the plot. The clay tile cladding on the double height wall is a splendid designer element that adds a unique dimension to the elevation.
Moreover, these clay tiles act as an insulation that safeguards the structure from extreme heat. Interestingly, this is the only extravagant designer element in this otherwise simple and elegant house.
Incredible space management is what makes the interiors of this house stand out. The spaces have been smartly designed so that the spatial limitations of the small plot wouldn’t make the interiors congested or stuffy. The private and public spaces ensure privacy.
The rooms, meanwhile, are designed to make interior traffic easier. Designed in 100 sqft, this spectacular abode has a sit out, foyer, living area, dining space, pooja space, kitchen and a store room, a bedroom in the ground floor. Meanwhile, there are two more bedrooms, a storage space and balcony in the upper floor.
The foyer and the living areas have been unified into a spacious hall. The stairway, meanwhile, is in the formal living area. The vertical hand railings of the stairway look chic and modern. The open dining and kitchen make the spaces look and feel spacious.
The wash area with a pedestal wash basin is compact and doesn’t take up too much space in the dining area. A beautiful wooden partition is what separates the wash area. Interestingly, the space beneath the stairway has been turned into a storage area that is lined with cupboards and cabinets.
A parallel kitchen seemed like the best idea in this house that is built on a smaller plot. However, lots of cabinets and storage spaces have been arranged here to make the kitchen space efficient. A common bathroom too has been arranged close to the kitchen area.
There are three fabulously furnished bedrooms in this house. The master bedroom is modern and boasts of all the amazing amenities. All the bedrooms are bath attached.
This fabulous abode in Vadodara is an amazing example of a comfortable and modern dwelling that is built without breaking the bank. This is a universal model that could be recreated at any part of the world as it easily adapts to the unique geographical features.
