Atelier dnD made Dinesh Mill Bungalow, a residence in Gugarat, India that focuses on a balanced composition of material and colour to generate a 3D space of visual and visceral intrigue. From the calming greens of nature to the sparkling Cotto glazed pool tile, the horizontal planes develop a stunning wrap to the river washed black granite slabs increasing up from the pool and the white sand faced plastered walls in ruf challenging fine texture that clad the exterior of the home. The short that Atelier dnD received from their clients was to create a residence that preserved the natural vegetation inside the site although at the exact same time generating a modernist residence of geometric uncluttered lines It took several adjustments to the original style concept to accomplish a strategy that preserved as much as the landscape as feasible without having compromising on style, and the final result shows what can be carried out when client and designer come collectively to produce the best abode.
The front of the property is as gorgeous as the back. Massive walls of organic silver-black slate travel via the home, slicing by means of the façade and previous the deck to produce statement privacy walls that also stand proud of the roofline. The slate walls meet up with a row of vegetation that continues the line down along the edges of the private front yard to develop a space of intimate relaxation. Strategically placed uplights placed at even intervals within the vegetation flood the lawn with a soft glow as night approaches.
The primary driveway leads up to a covered entry way that characteristics a cantilevered roof extending outwards in line with the covered living zone on the other side of the slate wall. The slate wall sports a void where a turquoise metallic sunburst is featured for an extra layer of artistic appeal.
The addition of voids into the geometry of the developing brings an added layer of transparency that on their personal, brings depth to the point of view, but also, with the addition of the turquoise sunburst in the wall and a tree poised as sculpture under the roof void, emphasizes the artistic appeal of the residence.
The back of the home is as visually intriguing as the front. Keeping the pre-existing trees and operating them into the all round plan of the residence grounds the residence into the landscape and using an extended slate wall behind the group of trees closest to the residence creates a connection to the trees that would otherwise not be there.
Rather then wrapping the back of the home with terraces, the architects chose, instead to hug the house with the outdoor pool. Bringing the water element up tight to the home makes it possible for the air to rise from the pool and cool the interior zones. It also enables organic light to bounce off of the water’;s surface and enter the living zone and master bedroom for an indirect natural lighting source. The pool extends into the lawn location generating it the hub of all outside activities.
The Timex wooden tile surrounding the pool tends to make the ideal frame and the dark shades of the tile is picked up on the interior furnishings. The white colour of the exterior is continued throughout the interior on both the walls and the white Statuario marble flooring. The windows also function a white UPVC surround, and although all the white could feel stark, the brilliant shade of the pool, the soft greens of the all-natural landscaping and the beautiful slate walls preserve the Dinesh Mill Bungalow full of energy and dramatic appeal.
The pool follows the line of the residence coming to an end under a slatted arbor. The arbor also creates a connection to the private terrace among the pool and the Master Bedroom. The wooden tile utilized on the terrace deck develop a soft connection amongst the brilliance of the pool and the starkness of the creating.
The poolside arbor continues the geometric theme via the roof slats and the columns. By mounting the columns on the raised section of river washed black granite slabs, the arbor feels more enclosed then had the columns been mounted directly into the deck. The raised section also permits for a small fountain to spill into the pool for ambiance.
Just beyond the terrace is a flight of stairs that leads up to a private deck total with an open air Jacuzzi.
The outside staircase is a black powder coated steel composition that blends perfectly with the all-natural silver-black slate wall it is mounted on. From a distance, the stairwell is entirely camouflaged behind the tiny vignette of trees.
The open air Jacuzzi sits high above the slate walls for a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape while at the same time being positioned for full privacy.
Whether utilised to camouflage the steel staircase or generate vertical planes of privacy, the slate walls are a beautiful addition to the white finish of the white exterior and Atelier dnD architects did an awesome job featuring these walls to tie the organic landscape into the geometric profile of the Dinesh Mill Bungalow.
