In a country with a history and culture like India's, it is always interesting to see how designers and architects bring that context into their modern efforts. The single family home featured in this post was designed by the team at Charged Voids. The residence is located in Mohali, Punjab, India, which is a region experiencing tremendous modern growth at the moment. For this reason, the house was designed to be somewhat universal in its presentation. Many of the homes featured on this blog were designed with specific occupants in mind, but this sleek and beautiful home instead acts as a blank slate for whatever modern family chooses to move in.
Because the home was not sold when building began, the architects wanted to ensure the broadest possible market for the house. This is why the design, from color scheme to building materials, is luxurious but still largely neutral. We at 3D Power think that this is the reason why they chose to adhere to the Indian tenets of Vaastushastra, ideas which dictate building layouts, measurements, arrangements, and other architectural details. While not all Indian families adhere to these ideas, a home that does will be more likely to sell.
