In essence with its name- ‘the elemental’ by Ashwin Architects relates to very basic elements of nature. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) has covered the entire project in detail. Have a look:
‘the elemental’ stands in a 40' X 60' plot nestled in the suburbs of Bangalore. The focus of the design was to create unusually elegant spaces and interiors through a meticulous composition of horizontal and vertical lines.
The planning features opulent spaces and amenities and the finishes are carefully selected to make a unique statement of life exceptionally well lived. The result is a relaxing and elegant sanctuary that spaces luxury and style.
Ample Amount Of Natural Light & Ventilation
The house is designed with large openings on either sides of the double height living space encompassing the benefits of natural light and cross-ventilation. The spaces designed are a refreshing revelation of a residential framework, with a sense of discovery and a feeling of intimacy in every section of this multi-level home.
Raw Yet Contemporary Outlook
The building is formed from basic elemental shapes with raw finished materials, such as exposed concrete, metal and clear glass. An element of copper is touched with customized lighting fixtures and planters. The eye catching red furniture in the living strikes a contrasting balance and completes the space.
