It Took Six Years To Make This Tamil Nadu Vacation Home, And The Result Is Wonderful.
While the construction of a house may be a task once, it is a life-long effort to make it a home. We may have a clue as to what it looks like, but it is the architects, designers and stylists who give it a tasteful life, decode and recreate every element of comfort for us. In Hosur, Tamil Nadu, the FADD Studio co-founders Farah Ahmed Mathias and Dhaval Shellugar have turned Courtyard House into a love work that lasted six years.
“We built a house that resonated boldly with everything a client dream of,” says Ahmed Mathias, saying, “We built a house that echoed everything that the client dreamed about from our initial trepidations, to our progressively and gradually growing confidence along the way.
The owner, manager of a business, wanted his Tamil Nadu property to be his, his daughter and their families’ ideal holiday destination. The main theme was to bring together a sense of tropical luxury, his favoured blue colour, and a combination of traditional Indian components to tell a storey all over the house.
The house, 10,000 sq.ft., is spread over a 27,000 sq.ft. the site and the centre of the house are open to the outside in large measure.
A stunning laser-covered metal roof covers the massive driveway. It throws geometric shadows on the road that interacts in a deconstructed sequence with the pavers that flow into the lagoon. 3Fold designed the land, including water bodies on one side and places of differing heights on the other.
The property was landscaped with a 3Fold Design. The surrounding tropical plants and frangipani are complemented by sea horse sculptures and Purple Turtles’ pots from Address Home.
The door is surrounded by a wall of electric cobalt blue and a vintage wood-block printing handle. An exquisitely sculpted wooden framework behind a large mirror, custom made by Bari. Bharat Floorings’ cement-tiled floor leads to the rest of the house with a wooden sculpture and Hybiscus plants.
‘A collection of columns that run across inside and outside of the house is one of the most remarkable aesthetic elements in this Kerala-style house. We decided to highlight them with patina finishing paint on the top and with hand-painted designs on the bottom instead of hiding them as structural elements.
