The villa spread over a plot of 28,000 Sqft in South Goa was built along with two guest bungalow in the plot. This is when ZERO9 was approached to do the interiors and landscape for the villa with some basic details for the external facade. The space was to be kept simple, elegant and subtle as it was to be lived in daily and not to be treated as second home. Functionality and maintenance free design was expected.
The entrance foyer is complimented with a 8’ wide verandah that hosts lazy chairs and plants making it a perfect spot to spend an entire afternoon. The driveway is paved with waste granite stones with a chevron pattern. The living room spreads over an impressive 1500 Sqft of a double height space connected with the staircase, dining area and entertainment zone. The entertainment zone was divided with a interesting grid partition to create a privacy factor as well as a visual highlight. The main seating is designed with subtle elegance with leather backing and wooden edge. The double height wall dons an exotic aged veneer with a bookmatch forms an artwork in itself. The dining zone is in within the open zone accessible the living room and the kitchen as well.
The Dining table in white marble creates a non maintenance table top at the same time displays elegance. The Entertainment Room on ground floor is mainly used as a family sit out as it is easily accessible to grandmothers room on the ground floor with a breezy view of the lawn, gazebo and the unending paddy fields. The grand mothers room with a simple pattern of light veneer creates a visual pattern for the bed back as well as the wardrobe.
