This Stunning Ahmedabad Villa Features Transformative Facade, Inspired by Traditional Jaalis

In the midst of a bustling cityscape dominated by tall buildings, there's a unique private villa that stands tall. This villa is the result of a family's dream to expand their property, and it was designed by the talented team at Blocher Partners India, led by architect Hartmut Wurster. The design team has provided additional information about the project to SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Custom-Designed Flexible Jaali Facade

The key challenge was to create a home that offered both privacy and a strong connection to the lush surroundings. The solution was a custom-designed flexible facade that could be opened or closed like a piece of art. This facade featured intricately designed louvers inspired by traditional Jaalis, ensuring privacy while letting in fresh air and regulating the temperature.

As the day turned into night and the seasons changed, the villa transformed to adapt. The balconies and screens allowed for different experiences, from enjoying the rain with a cup of tea to embracing the winter breeze. The villa's design was minimalist, using a select few materials - marble floors, lime plaster walls, elegant stone facades, and wooden screens.

The Unique 90-Degree Design Concept

Inside, the villa's layout was carefully planned to create a harmonious flow. The entrance engaged the senses with a unique 90-degree design, and the double-height lobby felt grand and dramatic. Well-chosen light fixtures added an artistic touch. The design seamlessly connected with nature, inviting it into every corner of the villa.

The villa's thoughtful layout included spaces for grandparents, parents, and children, each designed with their needs in mind. Cantilevers and screens enhanced the villa's charm while ensuring comfort and privacy. Lime plaster not only added natural variations in color but also reflected eco-friendliness.

Minimalist Furniture in Modern Interiors

Inside, minimal and clean-lined furniture complemented the overall design philosophy. Beyond the villa's walls, a beautiful landscape featured a courtyard with greenery and soothing water sounds.

In conclusion, this private villa is an architectural masterpiece that combines elegance, functionality, and a strong connection to nature. It showcases the beauty of minimalistic design in a modern urban setting.
