Nestled in the vibrant cityscape of Bangalore, the latest construction of Project Krishna stands as a testament to contemporary living, seamlessly blending innovation and tradition. Designed for a tech-savvy couple and their daughter, the residence harmoniously incorporates laterite from Kerala, creating a unique, visually stunning structure.
The three-bedroom house on a 5-cent west-facing plot has a semi-closed kitchen, dining space, and a double-height living room. The structure redefines urban living embracing the beauty of exposed laterite construction. The architectural narrative blends tradition with a modern exterior. The three-bedroom layout, featuring a closed kitchen, dining area, and a double-height living room, reflects a thoughtful approach to space utilization.
The master bedroom steals the spotlight with a generously sized bay window, offering panoramic views. The kid's room boasts a mezzanine floor for play and study, fostering a dynamic environment for the young resident. The guest bedroom, adorned with a balcony overlooking the picturesque west sunset, becomes an idyllic retreat.
From the elegant mahogany wood-and-steel staircase to the captivating vistas from the guest bedroom's balcony, the design seamlessly weaves functionality with aesthetic appeal. The flooring, a canvas of vitrified tiles, complements the exposed laterite, while the interior and joinery showcase the warmth of full teak wood.
The closed kitchen is a marvel of practicality, adorned with PVC laminate finishes and a nano-white counter. The design addresses every need, featuring ample storage and a height-adjustable platform, ensuring accessibility for individuals of all statures. A dedicated island counter stands as a focal point, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.
Embracing eco-friendly practices, the residence promotes open planning, encouraging cross ventilation and ample natural lighting through strategically placed skylights. The semi-open roof-covered terrace serves dual purposes—a dance haven and a space for traditional Kalaripayattu practice. This residence transcends the conventional, embracing a perfect amalgamation of tradition and modernity with every element manifesting the unique lifestyle of the occupants.
