A Modern Home

Redefining luxury as reminiscent of the past by using handcrafted techniques, this splendid house creates varying experiences by showcasing an array of spaces.

Located in an uber urban setting of Gurugram (Delhi NCR), this luxurious residence is like a slice of heaven for its inhabitants. Covering an area of 4500 sq ft., the house looks like a series of floating wooden boxes held together by a soaring roof plane. Giving value to the firm’s philosophy, ASRO Arcade delivers a residence that along with giving comfort to the different generational lifestyles, also provides distinctive functional elements.

The client had a desire to form an opulent and modern home with the inclusion of nature to it. Ar. Robin Sisodiya, Principal Architect- ASRO Arcade rose to the occasion and assimilated modern design while incorporating the right texture and colour palette. Since the site is contoured, the house showcases varying spaces exploiting the site terrain to form two different levels, each dedicated to private and public functions. A story is intricately unveiled between the two surfaces as a banding pattern, using the concept of linear striations. The design is conceptualized in a way that it offers warmth and interaction to all the members of the house while still respecting their need for privacy.

The house opens to a double-height entrance, leading to the basement with a floating staircase that enhances the grand height of the room upon entering it. The design team explores the traditional craft of India, that is seamlessly integrated with the outside landscaping. To show an array of spaces, the residence has been designed to craft an experience with the play of materials and textures. Stonecraft is used in one zone, metal craft in one, and textiles have been incorporated into the third zone; providing a space that is similar to the unravelling of rooms in a museum.
