The Badari residence is a house designed on a typical urban plot Bengaluru, India which is the tech capitol of India. The client required a house that would be distinguished into two types of spaces. Creating spaces that could be personal and intimate verses spaces that are congregational in nature which encouraged interaction among family and friends.
The building’s exterior and interiors was conceptualised by Cadence Architects as a series of episodes that are seek and sculptural.
The Living room plan was organised around a double height space that forms the soul of the house, connecting the living, dining, kitchen, prayer room and the exterior deck into a cohesive whole. The space is further animated with an internal balcony and a bridge overlooking it to establish connectivity with floor above. The fluidity in this space enables individual requirements to overlap with each other providing a cosy interactive space for the family. This space is rendered with an eclectic material palate, replete with colour and texture that exudes warmth.
The master bedroom is sculpted to create a figural void and is materially draped in rough marble. This ephemeral marble screen, structurally hung from the ceiling is bound by an earthy terracotta frame with a garden void . The green deck with its figurative void negotiates the connection between the interiors of the house and street it overlooks. The slatted window screen further adds a syncopated rhythm to this formal organisation.
