Malwankar house (11 Photos)

The client being an ardent traveller has a passion towards collecting artefacts and art pieces, which necessitated a good place of display. so the house is treated as a simple canvass to display the large art collection. the design approach was minimal layered with traditional details & materials. athangudi flooring, teak wood furniture, jaisalmer & baroda green marble compliments the art used all throughout the house. 16ft high sloping roof facilitated 2 mezzanines housing a store & library. coloured glass windows on the mezzanine is a detail that looks like an exhibit & adds vibrancy to the space. deriving a simple language that was rich and vibrant yet pleasant and calm to be in was the final design intent. the lighting and use of colours, patterns and material textures helped in achieving the latter. a simple house laced with art all around makes this an ideal \"indian art home\".
