Of Antiques and Intricacies
Updated: Oct 10, 2018
Somewhere in the beginning of my internship, a site visit brought back the excitement towards architecture that I had lost somewhere along the way in the course of my education (Read more about that experience here).
The house itself is very interesting. It is an of an extension of one of Sai's previous projects called Saravan (Find out more about Saravan here) . As of now the house is in the penultimate stages of the first phase. It is an interesting amalgamation of antique doors and windows, intricate cast iron pieces, colourful tiles in all sizes and colours sourced from various places. All of this may sound like a bit of a mish-mash coming together in one place, but trust me the result is anything but that. It's quirky and fun in the right ways. It is a bit much and yet perfectly balanced. Take a look for yourself and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.
We anticipate the second phase to be more modern with a steel A-frame structure crowning the home, but that's a conversation for another day...
