Minimalist Comfort Bengaluru Home Speckled With Colours | A.J Architects

Designed by Arvind Jain of A.J. Architects, this compact 1600 sqft, 3BHK home in Bangalore for three generations and three couples, is done up in minimalist design, soothing neutral tones with a pop of colours through furniture. The architect shared with SURFACES REPORTER (SR) how the design team overcame the challenge of incorporating the exhaustive and diverse functional requirements of its inhabitants with coherent aesthetic details.

A small compact 1600sft, 3 bedroom flat was to be designed to cater for the needs and aesthetics of three generations and three couples living in. 

Minimal, Neutral Yet Impactful 

A neutral colour palette and minimalism were the prime choice for the home's interiors.

“We visualized and chose to speak a language of minimalistic and neutral toned space and let the furniture do the speaking in terms of the vibe and pops of the space,” says Arvind.

The foyer opens up into the vast expanse of the public space, where the task at hand was to convert this singular space into two different zones, serving different purposes - yet coming together to form a coordinated environment that is sophisticated and relaxed.

Living and Dining Space 

The living extends into the dining space and beautifully creates a flow that is seamless - connecting the two spaces in harmony. Laying out the seating arrangement in a way that favoured easy conversations. Ample natural light floods the living and dining area, which gives us an opportunity to experiment with slightly darker muted tones.

Here, the showstoppers are the T-V cabinet with white natural marble with a backdrop of natural wood flutes, the entrance console with “U” shaped legs and a big window that allows ample natural light.

The play with PVD-coated elements adds much-called-for glamour without making a very obvious show. The stunning experience continues throughout the living & dining.

Parents Bedroom

The parents' bedroom adorns shades of grey, be it on a 9 feet high wardrobe or the marble panelling on the headboard side.

Elder Son’s Bedroom

In the elder son’s bedroom, the herringbone pattern veneer coupled with Gold PVD handles for the 9 feet tall wardrobes form the main focal point. The mirror beside the headboard adds to the expanse of an otherwise small bedroom. Being in the IT industry, with a common norm of working from home for most of the days of the week, a spacious table was required.

“With a brief to make the bedroom clutter free and more spacious, we designed a wall-mounted openable working table which could accommodate 2 monitors, a laptop and other hardware (a complete office setup). Once the table is closed it acts as a regular display and storage unit,” Arvind says.

Second Son’s Bedroom

In the second son’s bedroom, the design team has paired bright colours with a PVD gold finish hexagonal frame, which also doubles up as a headboard.

The room is veiled with natural light. Here we have designed a foldable study table for kids in the gurukul system. The foldable table gives some playing space for the kids.
