Lo­cated in Ben­galuru, the gar­den city and the sil­i­con val­ley of In­dia, the Screen House de­signed by Annkur Khosla De­sign Stu­dio be­longs to Purn­ima Sama, her hus­band and their son. Hav­ing re­lo­cated from the US, the cou­ple was keen on set­tling down in Ben­galuru city, which is known for its green pock­ets.

The brief given to the de­sign team for this four room apart­ment with an at­tached ter­race, was to keep it sim­ple. All that the home­own­ers wanted was an aes­thet­i­cally de­signed home that suits their func­tional re­quire­ments. Annkur Khosla, Prin­ci­pal Ar­chi­tect, Annkur Khosla De­sign Stu­dio re­veals, “We are the ar­chi­tects of the build­ing as well, so we en­vis­aged space to en­sure that the struc­ture of each apart­ment is well de­signed for ev­ery client. In a build­ing project, there are sev­eral end users and you have to think for a larger so­cial group. Ad­di­tion­ally, when you also have to play the role of the in­te­rior de­signer, you have to chal­lenge your­self to think about what more can be done with it.”

“Screens were used through­out the home, to not only bind the space, but to also DEMArCAtE AND DE­fiNE the spa­ces within.”

First and fore­most, a con­nect was es­tab­lished be­tween the in­doors and the na­ture out­side. Screens were used through­out the home, to not only bind the space, but to also demarcate and de­fine the spa­ces within. Adding to the grandeur is a large mir­ror. “We placed the screens in a unique man­ner. In terms of colours, fresh colours were in­cor­po­rated in the rooms for a vi­brant vibe, whereas warm colours were used for the invit­ing liv­ing room to cre­ate a sense of warmth,” ex­plains Annkur. Since the man of the house is in the tech in­dus­try and de­signs chips with Google, tech­nol­ogy had to be a part of the home. Thus, wire­less tech­nol­ogy was used to con­nect the mu­sic speak­ers that could also be con­nected through a mo­bile phone. What fur­ther adds to the am­bi­ence of the home is the warm and ami­able na­ture of the fam­ily re­sid­ing there.
