Sarpanch House by Neogenesis + Studi0261
Designed by Neogenesis + Study0261, Sarpanch House is a modern luxury house located in a small village near Surat, India. With nearly 6,000 square feet of living space, this house has more than enough space for all the needs of a modern family and in this case, the layout is quite open and very connected to the outdoor area.
Located in a small village called Talangpore, this iconic and closed residence is designed keeping in mind the occupant profession. The context of the house resembles a very rural setting, sharing a wall along with a cow pen, open land to pasture on the other side and vice versa old traditional house. The head of the family becomes the Sarpanch (head) of the village giving very short requirements on how the structure must stand out from the surroundings and the privacy of the house must be maintained.
Mass divergence is made through the die cube and the wood is coated with aluminum pipe as a screen. This adds to overall mass without sacrificing sight and ventilation. This mass which is clear in nature does not yet exist together ideally, articulates the function of the house forming volumetric heights.
The organization of space on the ground floor revolves around a central courtyard, creating indifferent entries on the other side of the living room for office space upstairs. The calm coil of elements such as stairs creates a unique humor when someone enters the main gate. The staircase humor continues as seen from the living room, so that during the transition, family privacy is not blocked. The contemporary needs and rural context help frame the house’s color palette. Homely tones and beautiful furniture blend together to create a unique look.
