Envisioned and designed by Ar. Vijay Sohilia and Ar. Raj Kachhadiya of Design Dott Com, this residence is set in an apartment overlooking the Tapi River in Surat. Aptly named “Kinaara” or 'The Ripple House', the design of this house has been conceptualised taking inspiration from river waves called the “Ripple Effect”. Moreover, the client’s affinity for maximalism and a house that reflects his personality led to the design idea. Architects shared morer details about the project with SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

The main door is designed as a group of concentric rings with punctures in it creating a unanimous formation, and becoming an eye-catching element at the first point.
Followed by the main door is a small buffer space _ a personal lift lobby with patterned inlay flooring in white Italian marble and brown onyx. The pattern of the flooring is carried forward to the adjoining highlight wall and reflected in the ceiling using a mirror, creating c-shaped patterned surfaces.
Welcoming Entrance Foyer
As one enters the house, one witnesses the vastness of the space. The foyer space has informal seating with an elemental screen as a backdrop.
Rich and Refined Living Area
The living area seamlessly transpires into an ultra-chic adobe with modern lighting, rich and refined detailing, dramatic wall textures and accent features. The ceiling becomes the “fifth wall” in the space and adds to the maximalist design featuring a ripple pattern in mirror and wood.
The TV wall has panelling done in onyx stone backlit randomly to enhance the beauty of the space at night. The balcony adjoining the living space gives an expanse of river view from the inside.
Visually Connected Living and Dining Area
The layout is an open plan with Foyer, Living, Puja, Dining and Kitchen connected visually but separated by partitions and varied furniture elements.
The panelling in the area is kept subtle with random grooves and mirror strips added to the detail.
Minimal Bedooms Get An Artistic Touch
The bedrooms are kept minimal with metal art pieces on the bed back. The back walls are treated in veneer, leather and mirror panelling with different character in each room.
With a unique selection of upholstery and patterns in all rooms, all bedrooms are symphony with each other yet unique in their own way.
