The Infinity House, Khandala

Planned with a brief of maximising views of the sea and enabling a nexus with the environment, the villa for a family of four has been conceived on a plot of land that is deeply contoured with a steep slope towards the valley.

With stupendous views, where earth, water and the environment amalgamate to demonstrate nature’s phenomenon, the villa has been planned with most of the rooms optimising the views. The natural site contours have been used effectively while exploiting the views of the mountains to create an infinity swimming pool, that manifests itself as the core of the villa. The area under the pool serves as a leisure zone of the house, the more semi-public zone where games and an entertainment area are functionally located, while opening out into a lush green garden.

Interior Spaces moulded by their details

A glass and wooden screen separates the living room on one side and has 40 feet opening on the other facing the valley, creating panoramic views for the more public zone of the house. The language of the furniture here follows a modern palette with leather furniture, travertine marble table tops and a blue granite dining table top. An interesting exotic Brazilian granite forms a feature wall in the living room. The master bedroom has a 13 feet cantilever projecting out which provides shade to the outdoor sitting beneath. A bathroom sits next to this bedroom that flaunts a free-standing bathtub, a wardrobe and a chaise lounge. Such luxury of size and aesthetics could only be achieved in the countryside, away from Mumbai.

Crafting spaces with art

The walls of the entertainment area are of concrete with one wall in bold red. The area under the swimming pool is dropped and is treated as the theatre. Raw wood centre tables, quirky artefacts and a card table along, a pool table with a bar made of black marble form a vibrant entertainment area are some of the illustrious pieces of artwork.

Augmenting a visual connect with the outside greens

The natural site contours have been used effectively while exploiting the views of the mountains to create an infinity swimming pool, that manifests itself as the core of the villa. The area under the pool serves as a leisure zone of the house, the more semi-public zone where games and an entertainment area are functionally located, while opening out into a lush green garden.

Modern yet Contemporary

The design language of the villa is modern contemporary. Both the exterior and interior walls are draped in white colour. The flooring is finished in white lhasa marble. The whiteness of the villa on the inside and the seamless slabs without beams create a beautiful visual contrast and blur the boundaries of the inside with the lush green garden and foliage of the outside landscape.
