FARMVILLE RESIDENCE

ADDA Architects as Interior Designer

The Farmville at Surat, Gujarat is designed with an idea of transforming the farmhouse into a place where the younger generations could feel connected with culture and recreate the feel of places that the older generation had grown up in. An experience rather than just a place to stay is created with modernistic materials and geometric triangular shapes, which has been used in a diverse way symbolizing strong cultural roots. A meandering pathway leads to the majestic farmhouse through the cool shade of trees planted on either side. A solid wooden door with a bit brass inlay greets at the entrance and invites into the beautiful house. The central pathway in the foyer open to the courtyards on either side of it, where both the courtyards are given a distinctive feel and leads up to an interesting stairway heading straight up the first floor. One of the courtyards becomes a Tulsi Angan with a hand painted tree of life on the wall in the backdrop and the other courtyard which extends into the back yard has a vertical green wall bringing the outside inside. A few other elements such as a marble bowl, a traditional swing, wall plates and a canoe are added to make a welcoming foyer.
