Beauty Parlour & Bridal Studio in Kerala, India by Eminence Architects [Research + Design]

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Article source: Eminence Architects [Research + Design]

The perception of a beauty parlour, a salon or a bridal studio has changed over a period of time. Typical layouts or designs are stories of the past. When we were assigned to design a women’s beauty parlour and bridal studio, we decided to give a different experience to the clients who step in. The site was located on the ground floor among a row of small shops. It was a long and narrow rectangular space of about 330sqft.

From the architect. Set in a semi urbanised strip that border a busy road in the otherwise sleepy suburb of Tirur,‘The Floating Parasol House’ sits on a linear plot with its shorter side abutting the street. Built for a privacy conscious family, the house was tucked towards the rear to accommodate a garden in the front, enclosed by means of a secondary landscape wall, that shield the house from the cacophony of the vehicular traffic and the commotions on the street.

Elathur House in Kerala, India by Playgroup Studio

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Article source: Playgroup Studio

The primary challenge was to retain an existing house on the site and build a complete new structure over it while retaining the basic functionality of the original structure. The new building was designed on a completely distinct set of circular columns which were placed strategically to avoid the existing walls and foundations. The new structure, aligned at an angle, floats over the lower structure. Roof of the existing structure was demolished and the space between the new and old structure was sealed with continuous frameless glass panes, maintaining the individuality of the two structures. The old structure was stripped off its plaster and the original large laterite stones revealed.

Cliff House in Kerala, India by Khosla Associates

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Article source: Khosla Associates

The house is located in Chowara, a fishing village, 30 minutes from Thiruvananthapuram, in Kerala, South India.

Perched 200 ft. above an expansive stretch of green along the Arabian Sea coast, at the edge of a cliff, its most prominent feature is an asymmetrical sloping roof set against the fronds of a coconut plantation. Opening its embrace to the warm sea breezes, the home covers an area of 1397 sqm. A skewed 45m long sheer concrete wall supporting the single lightweight triangulated canopy roof lunges out towards the view. The external and internal finishes are polished cement, concrete and rough slate juxtaposed against warm slatted timber and naturallocal kotastone. Furniture and accessories are kept to a minimal, so that the focus doesn’t stray from the natural environment.

Green Roof Residence in Kerala, India by Lijo Reny Architects

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

Article source: Lijo Reny Architects

“I don’t want my house to be seen from the road”, “I don’t want a typical Malayali NRI house” These two important suggestions from the client, directed the architects to design a house with a sweeping green roof hiding the otherwise visible form of the house from the road. If at all anyone got a glimpse of the house they would keep guessing as to what it was, an approach as such towards residential design is new to this place, where most designers fail (read avoid) to think beyond their visual architectural history, let alone a layman.

Residence at Punkunnam in Kerala, India by Lijo Reny Architects

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Lijo Reny Architects

The compound wall is a simple contemporary design, which breaks at two points, on either side of the site, to form horizontal openings that give a glimpse of the serene landscape within. The compound wall was designed in this fashion so that it compliments the building within it. It accommodates two entries to the site, a vehicular gate & a wicket gate. The wicket gate stands under a gateway that which is totally contemporary and a very good example of how traditional elements can be used in a modern context. The gateway connects the compound wall to the house visually, a point that is missed in most of the houses today.
