The Umber Home by Mold Design Studio has been designed as a single unit house over four floors, for a multi-generational family and the residence is conceived as a unified space while still respecting individual spaces. The residence is designed to provide an end to end visual integrity.
The layout of the floor has been planned to create maximum openness so that the garden and built space become an extension of each other allowing activities to flow seamlessly from one edge to the other. All rooms, bathrooms and the kitchen are designed to get maximum light through full height windows & high ceilings.
The art and accessories stand out as individual pieces, and when coupled with sober tones of fabrics used, and the practical use of everyday life, demarcate a strong classical-traditional influence evident throughout all floors of the house.
The Umber home is a testament, that despite several constraints, a modern house in Delhi can be conceived as responsible architecture, that responds to its surroundings, delivers to personal and collective expectations of a dwelling, and construes a language of spaces that transcends original functions to include dialogues on the monumental aspects of architecture; to resonate within the lives of its inhabitants and inform their lifestyle with a unique composition, that spans generations.
