Home owner: Suma Radheshyam
Location: Jayanagar, Bangalore
Styles: Ethnic, Contemporary
Making the most of a small space is challenging, especially in a residential area. But Suma Radheshyam wanted the works – a garden space, natural light, fountain and even a sauna! So, Kumeresh Sekeran of Dwar Ecodesign came to the rescue and he designed the home to make sure that Suma got her dream home!
A big fan of Raja Ravi Varma, Suma has a couple of stunning prints framed and displayed. The living room is lit up with S. L. Haldankar’s “Glow of Hope” alongside rustic stone walls. Also displayed are a gramophone player and wooden antique furniture that Suma has been collecting for several years. A miniature pebble garden with planters decorates the passage underneath the staircase and a tiled glass ceiling with a hanging wooden chandelier amply lights all 3 floors of the bungalow.
Wooden steps lead to the master bedroom and a study area, next to a beautiful and peaceful mini garden sit out.
On the 2nd floor is Suma’s personal space – her gym and sauna done up in rustic tiles; a unique addition, especially for a bungalow of this size. A small terrace provides the right space for a personal get together. Round glass windows with metal artwork add a modern touch to the traditional home.
