The idea was to design a house which complements the luxurious lifestyle of a very successful industrialist in Jamnagar. It was meant to be a joint family residence for 2 brothers. The challenge was to establish two different identities for a single house, catering to the choices of two families. Hence, the plan itself is divided into 2 wings with a connecting core. To give different identities to both houses from outside as well, we decided to use exposed concrete for one and exposed brickwork for the other. The local by-laws allowed us to make the structure tall enough to justify the design.
The ground floor consists of 4 car parking spots, office space, home theatre, and a servant quarter along with a soft landscape. The first and second floors have basic living spaces like living area, kitchen, dining area, bedrooms, and pooja along with water body and essential services. The third floor accommodates special amenities such as gym, Jacuzzi, steam sauna, massage/spa room and a large double height, hard landscaped balcony which overviews the main society road. The terrace was also developed to help host social/ business parties.
