A Blend of Fluidic and Rigid Forms Characterise the Fascinating Facade of Badri Residence by Cadence Architects | Bengaluru


Designed by Cadence Architects, Badri Residence is a luxurious modern home nestled in the Yediyur locality of India’s high-tech urban city-Bengaluru, closely packed with residential apartments. The site measures 5,500 sq ft of stunning living spaces. What makes the project stand out is its attractive exterior design. The dwelling merges the bold curve-shaped façade with the warm, cosy and spacious interiors filled with greenery and ample daylighting. Want to know how the house has shaped up?

The Badri residence is a house designed on a typical tight knit urban plot measuring 2400sft. The client requirement was further distinguished into two kinds of spaces- areas that needed to be personal and intimate versus spaces that needed to be congregational in nature which encouraged interaction amongst family and friends.

1Badari-Residence-Cadence-ArchitectsThe building’s exterior and interiors was conceptualized as an assemblage of a series of episodes that seek ‘delight’ through architectural effects.  

The Living room

The plan was organised around a double-height space that forms the soul of the house.

1Badari-Residence-Cadence-Architects This space connects the living, dining, kitchen, prayer room and exterior deck into a cohesive whole.

1Badari-Residence-Cadence-ArchitectsThe space is further animated with an internal balcony and a bridge overlooking it to establish connectivity with floor above.  

Eclectic Material Palette

The fluidity in this space enables individual requirements to overlap, providing a cozy interactive space for the family. This space is rendered with an eclectic material palate, replete with colour and texture that seeks warmth and delight. 

The Bold Façade

The bold façade was conceptualised as an assemblage of different parts that come together to form a whole.

1Badari-Residence-Cadence-ArchitectsThe master bedroom is sculpted to create a figural void and is materially draped in rough marble.

A garden occupies this void. The green deck with its figural void negotiates the connection between the house's interiors and street it overlooks.

1Badari-Residence-Cadence-Architects The slatted window screen further adds a syncopated rhythm to this formal organisation. 

The Terrace

The terrace sequestered from the busy street is an area where the family entertains and unwinds. The home theatre room and the guest bedroom open into an open space with a Jacuzzi and open deck. 1Badari-Residence-Cadence-ArchitectsThe slatted roof and the raised green wall provide the required privacy to the space from the neighbours.
