The Residence of Kembhavi Architects

As one of the most diverse and successful Architectural and design practices in India, the residence of this illustrious architect family personifies excuberence, class and style. Tucked off the busy streets of Hubli, the site sits pristinely under hundreds of year old rain trees and overlooks a park. The other three sides are abounded by other homes. The brief entailed accommodation of three generations under one roof and offer both interaction and privacy.

Design concept / Theme:

The pristine beauty of the site influenced the design, laid back and relaxed. The form of the design was evolved around the idea of a cottage nested under the wide arches of the beautiful rain trees. Also, an enterism to the cityscape knitted with old British bungalows. The expression of design was warm and earthy with enhanced use of wood, terracotta and shingles. Volumetrically the house has been planned at two levels seamlessly connected through a large double height dining and family space crowned by a strategically treated skylight that draws in myriad hues of the sky.

The lower level essentially has all the public zones like the living, dining and kitchen spaces with two bedrooms dedicated to the senior generation and for the guests. Whereas  the upper floor houses two bedrooms for the younger generation and a nice library space. The heart of the house revolves around the rear verandah that opens into a private garden, the billiards rooms and a barbeque area.
