HAEID recently constructed an exquisite villa in the city of Tumkur with contrasting colours, textures and materials, achieving an awe-inspiring panorama.
Located 70 km away from Bengaluru is the iconic Tier-II city of Tumkur. And, it was in 2016, when a young and a prominent industrialist, Nagesh Babu, approached architectural firm HAEID with his profound passion to construct an exclusive and exquisite villa in Tumkur.
HAEID’s paramount ‘dual mottos’ include offering projects to the absolute satisfaction of its esteemed clients and that which enriches urban beautification. That said, to effectuate its objective and profuse the aroma of high-class architecture to Tier-II cities, the architectural firm accepted the challenge of designing the residential villa, which successfully witnessed a splendid culmination recently.
The site measuring approximately 3,500 sq ft is in itself unique with roads on to its three sides namely North, West and South. The client’s (Babu’s) family consisted of five members – Nagesh Babu and his wife, mother Padmavathamma and his two young daughters Tanya
and Maanya. Hence, the initial brief entailed constructing a four-BHK compendious and fully air-conditioned villa.
Considering this, HAEID prepared an effective three-tiered floor plate system, which comprehensively accommodated and fulfilled all the requirements and casted all those modern amenities therein, which the family deeply yearned.
The main approach to the Villa is located on to the Northeastern segment of the property on the ground floor. The entire length of the property on its East multiplied with a width of nearly 12’6” and is dedicated for three large segment sedans. The wicket gate therein leads one to the North facing a highly ornate solid teakwood entrance door, which is cladded with nearly 100 kg engraved and ornamental brass works.
As the city’s climate is hot, dry and dusty, the architectural firm incorporated the use of travertine marble extensively for all the road facing compound walls and for the entire ground floor walls of the main building as a maintenance free conception.
Also, to achieve an alluring vista to the exteriors, the firm adeptly used the contrasting mixture of ‘solids and voids’, ‘projections and recesses’, ‘openness and concealed-ness’ in its contemplated compositions. Contrasting colours, textures and materials have been adopted to derive at an awe-inspiring panorama of the said magnificent villa from its exteriors. Thoughtful collaboration of imported textured paint representing light colour, travertine cladded surfaces representing medium colour and Fundermax cladding representing dark colour provided a spectacular view of the magnificent villa. Additionally, HAEID implanted wall washers, cove lights, down lights and spot lights at strategic locations to illuminate and provide a mesmerising sight of the villa at different times of the day.
