Situated in a municipal layout of Vadodara city, this delightful Brick House has been designed and constructed by K.N. Associates for Hemal Shah and his family of five. Narendra Joshi, the founder and principal designer of the architectural practice, optimized natural materials such as Kota stone, wood, granite and exposed brick to give an earthy touch to the house. He envisioned an extrovert form for the home where the solid mass of brick stands still and bold from the exterior while the three sides are covered with green spaces. One of the striking features of the house is its main door that is adorned with intricate wooden carvings inspired by the attractive and flawless heritage doors of Rajasthan.

The skylight above the wooden staircase creates a visual connection between all floors, enhancing the verticality of the house, and provides the upper levels with a heightened sensation of open space.

These voids allow daylight to reach every corner of this vast space while making the house well-ventilated and bright.

Earthy Material Palette

The use of eco-friendly materials such as wood, granite, Kota stone and exposed brick in Flemish bond gives an earthy feel to the built-up space.

The stark contrast of a reinforced concrete against the exposed brick and other traditional materials lends itself to the texture of both materials.

The house is supported by double-height beams for common spaces like the porch and the courtyard, while private areas like veranda sport and the gardens have a lower ceiling.
