The Ladhani House is a thoughtful approach towards designing residential spaces for new-age clients.

ladhani-houseThe design of the spaces departs from the ideas which focused on the past characteristics of vernacular Indian households and follows rather a contemporary theme.


Maximizing Space Through Careful Planning

The design approach of the architects has been to create optimized floor plates with efficient programmatic functioning to achieve maximised height spaces for the small family.

ladhani-houseThe effort to reduce the built environment has been achieved by designing a cantilever system with concrete which enhances the opportunity to design open and spillover spaces.

Innovative Openings and Skylights 

The exterior of the residence is moulded to create innovative openings and skylights which allow a very strong communication between the house and the surroundings allowing ample natural light into the spaces.

Oval-Shaped Pool in the Ground Floor

The visitors enter the ground floor through a double-height entrance. The narrative of spaces is further enhanced by the aesthetic artworks by Mukul Goyal and Vishakha.


The basement floor of the house has a swimming pool along with recreational spaces in a naturally lit environment. The half-oval-shaped pool is perceived as a complete oval with the help of a full-height mirror to create an illusion of huge space.

Contemporary Touch to Traditional Temple Style

The first floor is designed as a personal space for the family. It connects the lower floors designed for visitors and staff with the upper floors that are designed for seclusion and privacy.


The temple is designed in a double-height space with a small aperture on the top that resembles the form of the traditional temples, reimagined in a contemporary form.

Minimal Interiors and Lush Terrace Garden 

The second-floor houses the guest bedrooms with minimalistic finishes and exemplary relaxing spaces with a lush terrace garden and outhouse that binds the natural and modern characteristics of the space vibrantly.

Natural Material Palette

The project epitomizes the convergence of natural materials like Red Travertine and Kadappa Stone in its interior palette. The natural finish materials imbued into characteristics of modern spaces are featured with the natural sunlight in the day. 


The whole informal and simplistic ambience with the amalgamation of spatial elements is the result of the deeply engaging conversations between the designers and client to create a space that reminisces the sentiment of being at home.
