Not just another designer..

Architect and designer, Sandeep Khosla, has a wide repertoire of successful projects. His firm's distinct style of tropical residential architecture uses local materials and concepts, but reinterprets them with an innovative and contemporary design sensibility

Presenting some snippets from Sandeep Khosla's work:


The roof uses the distinctive style of traditional homes in rural India


Water feature in the 'indoor courtyard'


Notice the antique chest on the left, and how the colors of the painting match that of the water body!


Interesting wall


Traditional metal 'nandi' statue fits in well in the contemp design


Adore the reading lamp!



Integral part of homes in south of India - water feature within the house

Another example of an internal courtyard open to the sky


Who wouldn't want to live in this home? :)


Textured wall, treated wood for slab, and an interesting faucet


Mediterranean style lounge


Diyas and flowers floating in water niche in the table!

So beautiful how water is incorporated into the design. I would love to have an indoor courtyard with a reflecting pool!

What beautiful photos. I love internal courtyards and water features in homes. I wished I lived in a climate that I could incorporate these features. I particularly like the traditional roof structure in the first picture.

Chamiya said...

wow..! I am blown away by all of the designs!

Bhavna said...

Thanks Brilliant Asylum and Patricia! Another interesting fact is that according to 'vaastu' (ancient Indian science of architecture), the water body should always be on the 'east' to provide the best benefit to the home owner. :-)

Welcome to An Indian Summer, Chamiya! Glad you enjoyed the post!

I love the colors in the photo of the sink... the cool light of the candles around the stone basin, and the warm light glowing on the wood. -X

hi bhavna, u r right! who wouldn't want to live in a house like this. the water body and its surroundings look exquisite. there is total merger of all in each. the slab and facuet r fabulous. it's nice to see architecture using local materials instead of building homes in kanyakumari with marble brought all the way from makrana, all ur hard earned money being mis-spent on transport costs instead of adding value to the home.

Bhavna said...

So true Shaji! And using the local material also ensures that the buiding is 'suited' to the local climate and condition.

thank for dropping by :)
