The project is an exploration of materiality and juxtaposition of textures. The entire flooring is polished concrete with different inlays, like wood, stone, cement tiles and brass. The polished concrete is filleted onto the wall up to the sill level, to give a sense of being inside concrete rather than being on it. Different greys explored to go along with the concrete include a grey polished marble and three types of grey fabrics used in the soft furnishings. The only coloured accents used in the project in shades of indigo and turquoise, is in the ceramics, cushions or sheer curtains.
All the walls have a pigmented lime plaster finish which not only keeps the house cool in the hot weather of Ahmedabad, but also gives a sense of timelessness to the space. The wood used, is reclaimed 60-80 year old Valsad Teak from the ‘Pols’ of Ahmedabad.
Not only is it more sustainable, but the aged wood also has an inherent rich texture.
