What Houzz contributors are saying:
7. This small contemporary puja room with jalis has been worked into a well-planned wall niche – a wall that is embossed with a geometric floral motif, providing a perfect foil to the magnificent idol. The wall motifs find resonance in the latticework frame, exemplifying harmony.
Contemporary worship alcoveThis puja corner has been worked into a well-planned wall niche. The earthy palette of this alcove is enhanced by recessed lighting. The central geometric floral motif is mirrored in the latticework frame as well as the white panel that forms the backdrop. The illumination accentuates the embossed design on the wall panel through a lighting technique called wall grazing. Also, notice how just one magnificent idol makes for a compelling focal point.
In this puja room, soft recessed lights bring out the soothing tones of the wall colour and pass through the traditional jali frames,creating an interesting interplay of patterns. The same jali pattern is embossed on the backdrop of the shrine and is enhanced by the recessed light. This is often attained through a lighting technique called ‘wall grazing’ that helps larger surfaces like walls become the eye-catcher of the area, by highlighting their texture..
In this image, a traditional jaali frames the entrance and the same pattern is embossed on the backdrop of the shrine. The soft lighting adds soothing tones to the space while the fresh flowers floating in a bowl of water and the pair of khadau chappals (wooden slippers traditionally worn by deities, sages and saints) extend the shrine towards the viewer.
Motifs can bestow a sense of serenity and order. This very feature makes them ideal for puja rooms. This one by Shahen Mistry Architects uses a quiet regular design in the lattice work that frames the puja space. Check out the white wall panel at the back, with a matching pattern in delicate relief, and how it perfectly balances the dark, heavy jaali frame.10 Ways to Add Jaalis to a Contemporary Home
