Gurugram-based Logic Architecture + Research has designed The Eclectic Home in Noida, which is a 5BHK residential project spread over 4800 sq. ft. The project involved refurbishing the home across two levels – the ground floor with the living and dining spaces, kitchen and two bedrooms; and the first floor with three bedrooms, a study room and a pooja room. The client wanted a clean design revolving around the existing beige marble flooring while maintaining efficiency.
The firm took inspiration from multiple design styles such as mid-century, minimalism, classic and contemporary. Natural stones such as black Marquina marble, grey khareda sandstone and white statuario quartz marble are extensively used as well. Angular geometrical shapes, layered curves and statement lighting and furniture pieces comprise the design.
The triple-height entrance opens to an installation of Lord Ganesha, which is carved in white marble sourced from Udaipur and placed against the backdrop of a forest. The idol sits on a hexagonal marble block on a localized water body, illuminated by a bird chandelier. The guest and living area follows an eclectic design with Art Deco accents, including imperial blue and cardinal red against natural stone and metal. A wicker swing is suspended against black and white walls, with wall panelling on one side and stone-in-stone inlay on the other.
The kitchen needed sufficient storage space with a black marble island counter, which doubles up as a serving space and bar. A chandelier of green slender pendant lights within a metal framework shines upon the counter. The dining space has brass accents in the island chairs, towel rack and a framed round pivot mirror. Metal and wooden lattice interspersed with greens near the entrance shields the kitchen and dining space from obstruction, and leads one towards the living space.
The study area features wooden study chairs inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Barrel Chair Design, which are reminiscent of the whimsical Streamline Moderne style of the 1930s. The mandir on the first floor uses intricate jaali work in the backdrop ensuring open air and light. The master bedroom has an inverted circular arc in Black Marquina and White Stauario marble suspended in the air, which was sourced directly from mines in Udaipur and installed. The grandmother’s room has a massive fabric-cushioned bed against a detailed fluted wood wall and an industrial-looking Khareda stone wall.
