Accord House in Punjab is as luxurious as it is elegant
Planet Design’s new residential project is heavily influenced by contrasting material palettes.
Located in Ludhiana, a major town of Punjab, the design language of the Accord House is largely an exploration of clean yet magnificent visual forms conceptualised and designed by Planet Design. For the facade, the concept relies on concrete, in dark colouration, as its primary material, complemented with a texture that extends to the wooden elements in the landscaping. A variation of steel screens, louvers and a combination of granite and wood are integrated into the elevation.
Step inside and the grand interior resonates with the contemporary façade of the residence. Planned over three floors with the built-up area of approximately 650 sq-m, the interior retains a classy vibe. The ground floor accommodates the drawing room along with living and dining areas that has been tastefully designed with handpicked furniture from Arte Furniture in New Delhi and lighting from Hybec. The powder room on the ground floor plays with contrasting elements and is fitted with handpicked fixtures that sit well against the dark background and the handcrafted flooring from Tecnografica. The kitchen area is combined with the utility space which adds volume to the space and carves out the required storage area.
With two bedrooms, the ground floor also accommodates service spaces such as parking and car wash area. The guest bedroom and the home theatre are designed on the first floor, along with the son’s room, while the top floor houses the servants. The stairway leading to the first floor is an interesting feature, highlighted with a glass railing lined with hardwood and a chrome outer stringer. The double height stairwell features a striped ceiling with alternate bright and dark bands that lends a proactive accent to the space.
The master bedroom on the ground floor is sophisticated and soothing with soft textures and colours, clean lines and modern furniture pieces picked to resonate with the personalities of the occupants of the room. The lighting has been carefully positioned to add a sense of calm to the whole space. On the first floor, the son’s room has an experimental approach with wall cladding in different materials, selection of artworks and bright furniture that help to elevate the character of the room.
On the contrary, the guest room, on the same floor, has been engulfed entirely in the subtle shades of beige. A rich, warm feel has been incorporated in the home theatre, located on the first floor. Acoustically treated walls and an intelligent, automated lighting system complete the ambience.
