Complex Residence in India with a Jaw-Dropping Modern Design
Tuesday May 24 2011
Rajiv Saini & Associates redesigned an old family home located in Hyderabad, India. Although they initially meant to keep most of the original elements intact, the residence currently has a very modern feel, thus a completely new character. Here are just some of the transformations mentioned by the project developers: “Additional rooms got cantilevered over existing structure ( for example the copper clad gym overlooking the front garden is a newly added cantilevered steel structure,as are the guest rooms and the steel and glass study attached to the master suite ) , redundant spaces got axed / demolished, new spaces were created wherever possible ( the new dining room was created by enclosing a part of the rear garden ) ,the grand spiral marble staircase fell a victim to the reorganizing,replaced instead by a sleek metal and stone one, in a different part of the house. The 10′ diameter hole left in the sloping slab as a result of this got transformed into a skylight, and the roof got sheathed in a layer of black slate!“ There are plenty of photos below showcasing the diversity of this home, so we invite you to have a look and get inspired!
