In the outskirts of Bharuch, Gujarat, the dense 50 year old Sapota plantations held both the main attraction and the biggest challenge in the design of this weekend house for the Shah family. Situated within 800,000 square feet of farmland, the plot has 30 fully grown Sapota trees that the clients wanted to preserve in all their glory. External link: Dipen Gada Architects came up with a plan to form a 15,000 square foot house around the mature trees, making them the main feature of the impressive home. A central courtyard hosts one of these majestic trees right at the heart of the home, whilst another climbs through a picturesque balcony.

Always eye-catching and impressive, neoclassical interiors create a sophisticated character and an air of perfection. Classical architectural details make a stunning backdrop for the simplicity of modern furnishings, and add a density of decoration that is much more than momentarily mesmerising. The first of our three home designs, visualised by Yurii Chaikovskyi and Nina Semenkova, is an impressively high-ceilinged home with elegant arches and rich muted green accents. Our second home design features a double-height living room with a colourfully eclectic flair. The last of our tours takes place in an all-white home interior where classical details create deep borders of decorative coving and boiserie around a counteractive core of ultra-modern pieces.

Traditional Kerala architecture is a famous style from Southern India, which is primarily based on the science of carpentry principles that are known as Thachu Shastra, and the science of architecture & construction known as Vastu Shastra. A central, airy courtyard is essential in a traditional Kerala home, and so a pond edged courtyard design creates the heart of this 2400 square foot residence in Palakkad. Designed by i2a Architects for Mr. Rajeev & family, this house was created with a fundamental ‘Idanazhi’ concept, which in regional language means corridor. The light-filled corridor establishes an easy flow through each open zone of the home, keeping family members close and connected.
