Nestled in a rural landscape, on the outskirts of Baroda, lies, "Mangalas". This 3000 sqft farm house sits in a plot of 1, 00,000 sqft beautifully landscaped plot. It is a simple single storeyed exposed brick pitched roof structure.
When the clients, Mr. & Mrs. Patel approached DGA to design the interiors of their farm house, they gave the firm a complete free hand. Their only request was to create a space where the entire family could enjoy the quiet beauty of nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
When working on the concept for the interiors, the firm drew inspiration from the rural setting as well as the existing structure of exposed brick. On the whole the house was conceptualized as one with a rustic feel that maintained a contemporary edge. Very early on a decision was taken to use as much natural materials as possible and this can be seen in the abundant use of Kota and Jaiselmer stone as well as teak wood.
