The Beauty of Parallel Walls and Circular Cutouts in This Karnataka Family Home | Aakar Group of Consultancy

Nestled on a modest plot in Jamkhandi, Karnataka lies an architectural marvel—a bungalow home to a doctor couple and their children. Named for its unique design, with parallel walls adorned with circular cutouts, it's a contemporary take on traditional Muslim family features. The grey textured exterior is brightened by a vibrant yellow gate, offering a cheerful welcome. Ar. Milind M. Kulkarni and Ar. Mrudul. M. Kulkarni from Aakar Group of Consultancy share more with SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Crafted with minimal land impact and adhering to Vastu principles, this residence represents a seamless fusion of elegance and subtle magnificence.

Welcoming Entrance

Approaching the entrance, visitors are welcomed by a towering 10' tall compound wall adorned with lush green creepers, instilling the surroundings with a sense of tranquility and hospitality. 

The lower ground floor, dedicated to functionality and adaptability, features parking for two cars, a servant's quarter, and a versatile playroom that transforms into a grand hall for celebratory gatherings.

Grandeur on the Upper Ground Floor

Ascend the majestic staircase to the upper ground floor, where sophistication reigns supreme. A sunlit veranda, offering panoramic views of the verdant landscape, invites one to pause and appreciate the moment.

The entrance lobby, adorned with a majestic chafa tree, provides a serene backdrop, leading to the heart of the home—the living room—enhanced with a magnificent corner window framing the lush outdoors.

Every Facet of Luxury

Every aspect of this residence exudes luxury and refinement. The elevated dining area and well-equipped kitchen are accompanied by a utility room, storage space, powder room, guest bedroom, and master bedroom—all meticulously designed with functionality and aesthetics in mind. From the lavish Onice Aria Beige tile flooring that imparts a serene ambiance to the bespoke M.S. staircase with its wooden steps and distinctive yellow railing, every detail contributes to an atmosphere of unparalleled grace and sophistication.

The peacock blue accent wall behind the staircase adds depth and character, while a circular puncture in the staircase wall infuses artistic flair. Skylights above the staircase flood the space with natural light, enhancing the ambiance. 

The kitchen, trolleys, and overhead units are adorned in yellow, fostering a sense of harmony and continuity. Custom-made ceiling light fixtures and a cantilever dining table further elevate the space with distinction.

Family Lounge and Terrace Retreat

Venture into the haven of tranquility on the first floor, where a family lounge adorned with an attached terrace offers a sanctuary for relaxation and contemplation. Beneath a pergola of terracotta tiles, one can bask in the gentle embrace of the sun's rays while the ever-changing shadows dance in silent reverie.

The wooden flooring in the daughter's and son's bedrooms exudes warmth and comfort, while natural skylights bathe the space in an ethereal glow, enhancing the sense of spaciousness.
