Spreading over 5,500 square foot on two floors, the fascinating architecture of this modern residence inspired its name – the Wall House. Inspired to create a home that has “no clear distinction where the architectural work ends and the interior work begins”, Vadodara-based studio Dipen Gada and Associates gave the owners a comfortable, as well as enticing home. Bisected by a 34 feet high wall clad in unfinished local stone kota, the house is located in Baruch, a city in the Indian Gujarat state.
Social spaces display a carefully chosen, almost raw collection of design elements. Exposed concrete gives the living room a serene feeling, opening through French doors out into the garden. The dining space looks out over a fairytale water feature with a floating table resting on a side. Floors mark the delimitation between social and private spaces – the white mirror polished Italian marble makes room for the warmer mirror polished kota stone. Besides modern spaces like the home theater doubling as an informal living space or the internal courtyard, there is a special prayer area – “pooja” – that offers calmness, peace and happiness to the inhabitants.
