A fashionable bungalow for an intergenerational family
Designers Group showcases a residential project that is a perfect fusion of minimalism and regalism
Located in Pune and spanning across an area of 1,000 sq-m, this sumptuous and fashionable bungalow by Designers Group is a stunning amalgamation of luxury and elegance designed for an intergenerational family. The client, a family-oriented gentleman having numerous friends and peers, requested a chipper home that is clutter-free and easily serving as a great place to host guests and extended family for occasions and celebrations.
Being a second home for the client, the client’s brief simply called for an ultra-luxurious and larger-than-life retreat with an interesting and charismatic ambience. The notion was to achieve the perfect fusion of minimalism and regalism to give the inhabitants an inordinate delight. Pockets of different types of seating, reflecting contemporary sophistication, are spread across the entire living and connected dining area. A stunning skylight above the dining area adds an element of surprise and wonder.
A wall treatment fabricated with wooden louvres lends an elegant vibe while conceding entry to a magnificent bedroom and powder room. This bedroom is designed for the client’s grandparents where the interior scheme resonates with their personal choices and desires. The brick wallpaper and wooden flooring used for the entire design scheme resonate their grounded character and strong values.
A glamorous informal seating area on the left of the entrance door is reflective of valour and amiability. The complete area ushers a gleaming vibe through the leather used as the overall material palette. The carpet laid here is made of horse leather. The wooden rafters serve as the backdrop, brilliantly installed at an angle.
The enormous double-height dining table has a background wall displaying a flight of butterflies. This blue textured wall is both amorous and picturesque. A gigantic staircase on the left of the dining area meanders over to the upper floor. An open to sky cantilevered passage on the first floor is directed towards the home theatre plus family lounge. The 50-feet long balcony on this floor is designed to rejuvenate, as it displays the picture-perfect scenic view of the sunset beyond the lush greens of the backyard.
The contour and landscape are rendered in such a fashion that the bedrooms at the upper levels encompass enormous projections, creating a dialogue with the outdoors. The house exhibits immense character but with a reassuring sense of comfort and warmth. This ideological retreat reflects the high-standards and expectations of the occupants. This, along with the transitional colour palette and unique and purposefully chosen decor elements, make this residence truly one-of-a-kind.
