Bungalow For Mr. Saraf

Untrained eye is caught by the simplicity and the generous dimensions exuded by the residence. A humble volume of space lures the visitor into its fold. Striking contrast of materials used, render each surface its distinct feature. The roughness of stone; balanced by the serene white blends with the earthy character of the sloping roof in the exteriors.

As one walks in, one experiences the grandeur of the double heighted spaces. Multiple courts define each functional space with the stepping stones weaving them together. The affluent Italian marble in contrast with the stone forms a cohesive whole with the warmth of wood merging the interiors seamlessly. The staircase with its cantilevered wooden treads acts as a focal point forming a dais to pause on and contemplate. The amalgamation of traditional knowledge with contemporary needs create an ethnic sense of luxury.
