Nest – A brick house design in all its glory | era architects and associates
The ‘Nest’ aims to subtly transmit family values and beliefs to future generations. This project is exclusively designed, and customized for client Mr. Chirag Patel and his family (4 people in all). The house is built in Bodeli taluka, and it’s called mini Mumbai because of many businesses. The client preferred to live in town away from the hustle and bustle of the city life as the place offered a strong sense of community with peaceful environment.
In the ever-evolving world of architectural design, a remarkable trend has emerged – the fusion of modernity and timeless charm through exposed brickwork and natural terracotta jail bricks. This residence that beautifully incorporates the rustic allure of exposed brick, creating a harmonious blend of old-world warmth and contemporary elegance.
The main entrance door is a major highlight of the house including a safety door in a striking metal cutting work. Inside foyer has a veneer paneling around the door extended to living room with a deer figure embossed in MDF and PU finish. This serves as the centerpiece of the house which showcases welcoming ambiance.
What sets this living room apart is the idea of creating a living space that breathes – the space that is both fresh and inviting. When you enter into this inviting living space your attention naturally gravitates towards the TV wall.
The flooring – Italian natural stone embraces the overall, tranquility and balance of the living area which is a perfect retreat for relaxation and entertainment.
Kitchen & Dining
The kitchen space is designed that’s easy to use, fun to cook and socialize in. It has the color white stone top and contrasting it against grey acrylic glossy laminates that is easy to clean and scratch-free. The breakfast table acts as an imaginary partition between kitchen and dining space.
Here the dining space makes a statement and leaves a lasting impression, but also evoke conversation and represent the personality of the homeowner. The color palette, artwork, and the hanging light in the space add a more personalized dining experience.
To give our client a deeper sense of meaning and context, we transformed the connected wall into a captivating work of art with design engraved in mdf material finished with textured on it. This also enhanced the volume of the stair well. The decorative panel on the wall are also enlighten with lights.
