Wel­come to Gand­hid­ham, to the mod­ern, yet func­tional home of the Hadiya fam­ily. A house, which boasts of a per­sonal liv­ing space with a lake side view. A sim­ple, in­ti­mate and unique home that re­flects the sim­ple life­style of the fam­ily. The Hadiya’s, who be­long to the Ahir com­mu­nity, are well-known for their colour­ful em­broi­dery in Kutch. This is the pri­mary rea­son why the house is vi­brant, lively, bright, and cheerful. The home is a trendy haven where each cor­ner ra­di­ates pos­i­tive en­ergy and dis­plays a touch of so­phis­ti­ca­tion. To em­brace the morn­ing glory - the beauty, en­ergy and light of the morn­ing, the house is de­signed east-west fac­ing. Nat­u­ral light is treated as a must ma­te­rial for the res­i­dence. At the north side, there is a com­mon wall, which is de­signed south open. This en­sures that nat­u­ral light­ing makes the house en­er­gy­ef­fi­cient and eco-friendly. The ex­te­rior of the house is kept mod­ern with play of vol­ume masses and sin­gle lines. The cov­ered foyer out­side is of yel­low rus­tic tiles. The cen­tral court­yard pro­vides dif­fused nat­u­ral light through­out the day, and helps in cross ven­ti­la­tion of wind. Ad­di­tion­ally, there is a small lake on the west side, which en­ables cool wind flow.

El­e­gant wooden doors open up to a liv­ing space that is vi­brant and wel­com­ing. Dark Ital­ian mar­ble and leather so­fas come to­gether to cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ous space. The ceil­ing has zig-zag for­mat ve­neer de­sign and an­tique hang­ing lights. Colour­ful con­sole mark the seat­ing space. The double heighted court­yard is the fo­cal point of the house, adding a green cen­tral space to the large span of the struc­ture and bring­ing in nat­u­ral light. The din­ing has an or­ganic touch in its decor that is high­lighted with am­ple nat­u­ral light. The back­drop is a com­bi­na­tion of ve­neer and mir­ror.

Mov­ing on to the master-bed­room, you’ll no­tice that the double-height per­sonal sit-out is an ex­pan­sive space with a muted colour palette im­part­ing a rest­ful qui­etude. This area smoothly tran­si­tions into the bal­cony, thus bring­ing na­ture

in­doors. The per­sonal sit-out leads into the master bed­room where floor­ing changes from wooden tiles to Ital­ian tiles. The bed­room of­fers a for­mal and warm set­ting, the bed back is a com­bi­na­tion of wood, leather and brown mir­ror, which adds to the rich ma­te­rial palette. The fully glossy pol­ished ve­neer of the fur­ni­ture is ac­cen­tu­ated against the pris­tine white walls. The flow­ery pat­terned wooden bench en­hances the im­pe­rial decor. The daugh­ter’s room is cre­ated as a fun and dy­namic space dressed in vi­brant hues. Each space in the room is brought to life with lit­tle spurts of cre­ativ­ity and colour. The colour­ful bed back with green deco with spar­rows de­pict cheer­ful­ness. A niche has been fit­ted with the study desk, with cus­tomised shelv­ing right above. They say ev­ery house be­comes a home when peo­ple who live in there ap­pre­ci­ate the space that nur­ture their de­sign sen­si­bil­ity. The Hadiya’s sim­ple and el­e­gant home is no dif­fer­ent.
