Coimbatore – 2021 – 11,450 sq. ft.
Situated in the Manchester of South India, Coimbatore; Villa Pellucid, the house of transparency, is an epitome of built form shaped according to the elements of nature. The most integral element, light, defines the articulation of programs relative to the activities of users in the Villa. The built mass captures and frames views and vistas, changing dynamically with time.
The hushed surroundings and gusty winds have influenced meticulous material choices that emphasize clarity and distinction. The use of marble and wooden flooring creates a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors, inviting a tactile experience as one walks through the Villa. Hues of greys and browns of various textures are adorned on the floor, walls, and furniture creating a warm and cozy experience for the family residing.
The common living is the one where the user can foresight glimpses of activities taking place from every nook and corner. The porosity of the dining walls brings light endlessly to cater to the needs of users during different time periods of the day. A bespoke marble pantry with invisible drawers is quite intriguing. The kitchen is eternally filled with different flavors and aromas, which are circulated as a fragrance for the entire dwelling.
The stairway to leisure is the most striking feature as it opens out to feature the natural wall of living. On the second floor, the living area juxtaposes quirky furniture forms and colors to create a distinct experience from the rest of the spaces in the dwelling. Feature walls create an illusion of bringing the outside, inside to make the user feel connected to nature from within.
