Hiren Patel Architects completed the design and development of The Urbane House, a private contemporary home located in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. According to the project developers, the project pays tribute to the concept “form follows function”, heavily reflected in the sharp lines that defines the language of the residence. An interesting play of volumes ensures diversity throughout, every interior offering a unique living experience. Nature was subtly blended in the design, resulting in a less rigid contemporary look.
Here is a virtual tour of the house, as presented by the architects: “The entrance porch faces north which leads into a double height foyer, that is further connected to the family living and formal drawing room. The bedrooms, multipurpose room, dining room and kitchen open into a central space which is the family living room. A veranda visually connects the family living to the drawing room and serves as a transept between the private space of the family living and the surrounding lawns.” An excellent indoor-outdoor connection is achieved through extensive use of glass. The rooms are individualized and highly welcoming, with plenty of art works spread throughout.
