Architect Behzad Kharas
Architect Behzad Kharas of BNK Gropu is a winner at the International Property Awards 2016-2017 under two different categories of Highly Commended Architecture Single Residence – India and also the Best Interior Design Private Residence – India, this residence designed by the BNK Group is a very good example in minimalist design with a contemporary edge.
The concept was to have a very modern plush luxury house. The main door has been customized with 3D leaf work done in MDF with a self on self-design and a similar technique was used to create texture & movement in the living room ceiling. One can see the dining room courtyard and the living room immediately as they enter the house to give a larger expanse of space.
All the bedrooms, master guests, and mothers are kept minimalist with use of veneer and fabric to create warmth. The central courtyard which is the heart of the bungalow has a Japanese breakfast table laid out in the center with a green wall and lawn to create a greener experience within an enclosed structure. The double-height wall of the courtyard has a customized lit mural which visually connects the upper and lower floor. The mandir enclosure is created using corian jail with geometric cutouts. Dining overlooks into the patio which in turn leads to the garden. The kitchen is kept minimalist with the use of glass and laminated shutters.
The kids’ bedrooms reflect their personality with the use of colors. The theatre room has the use of grey and red to create a strong feel of an entertainment area. The terrace area is kept open with a blend of wooden decks and lawn area with siporex mural matching the main door design as a visual linkage.
Leaning heavily on a design process that aspired to play with straight-line design and clean geometric forms there are also ample surprises thrown in with interesting features such as the leaf in the courtyard. The composition of each wall to the whole room also is unique. The headboards and the opposite walls are detailed and the others have been kept simple to give a much needed visual distraction. This residence is truly an ornate experience with clean and classic lines.
