6,337 Mediterranean Terrace & Balcony Design Ideas
Project: THE YELLOW DOOR HOUSE Location:Pune Carpet Area: 2000 sq.ft Type: 2 bhk Penthouse Company: Between Walls Designer: Natasha Shah Photography courtesy: Inclined Studio (Maulik Patel) This project started two year ago with a very defined brief. This is a weekend gateway penthouse of 2000 sq.ft (approx.) for our client Mr. Vishal Jain. The penthouse is a 2BHK with ample terrace space which is perfect to host parties and enjoy a nice chilly evening watching a movie overlooking the stars above. The client was fascinated by his travel to Greece and wanted his holiday home to reflect his love for it. We explored the concepts and realised that it’s all about using local materials and being sustainable as far as possible in design. We visualised the space as a white space with yellows and blues and various patterns and textures. We had to give the client the experience of a holiday home that he admired keeping in mind that the vernacular design sense should still remain but with materials that were available in and around Pune. We started selecting materials that were sustainable and handcrafted in our city majorly. We wanted to use local materials available in Pune in such a way that they looked different and we could achieve the effect that the client was looking for as an end product. Use of recyclable material was also done at a great extent as cost was a major factor, it being a vacation home. We reused the waste kota that was discarded on site as the terrace flooring and created a pattern out of it which replicated the old streets of Greece. The beds and seating we made in civil and finished with IPS. The staircase tread is made out of readymade tread-tiles and the risers are of printed tiles to pop in a little colour and the railing is made on-site from Teakwood and polished. All internal floorings and and dado’s are tiles. A blue dummy window has been reused from and repainted. The main door is Painted yellow to bring in the cheerfulness and excitement. As we enter the living room everything around is in shades of white and then there are browns, yellows and blues splashed on the canvas. The jute carpet, the pots and the cane wall art are all handcrafted. The balcony connects to the living and kids room. A rocking chair has been placed there to unwind and relax. The light and shadow play that the ceiling bamboo performs throughout the day adds to a lot of character in the balcony. The kids room has been kept simple with just hanging ropes from the ceiling on the corners of the bed for it to connect to the outdoors and the rustic nature is continued from the living to kids room. The blue master bedroom door opens up to a very dramatic blue ceiling and white sheer space along with a cozy corner with a round jute carpet and bamboo wall art. The terrace entrance door continuous to the yellow on door and its yellow tiles. The bar overlooks the beautiful sunset view. There are steps created as seating space to enjoy a movie projected on the front blank wall in the front. The seating is made in civil and is finished with IPS. The green wall make the space picture perfect.

Down-to-studs remodel and second floor addition. The original house was a simple plain ranch house with a layout that didn’t function well for the family. We changed the house to a contemporary Mediterranean with an eclectic mix of details. Space was limited by City Planning requirements so an important aspect of the design was to optimize every bit of space, both inside and outside. The living space extends out to functional places in the back and front yards: a private shaded back yard and a sunny seating area in the front yard off the kitchen where neighbors can easily mingle with the family. A Japanese bath off the master bedroom upstairs overlooks a private roof deck which is screened from neighbors’ views by a trellis with plants growing from planter boxes and with lanterns hanging from a trellis above.

On the top floor Anna and Brian each have large offices separated by a Jack and Jill bath and walk in closets. The outdoor balcony on the second floor provides a sitting area with a great valley view and a quatrefoil opening at the end that targets the lush California greenery. Matching barbed quatrefoil windows are also to be found in the kitchen and master wardrobe area. Ceramic murals and pieces of Brian and Anna’s art collection are encountered at key points around the perimeter of the house and also within the house. The roof is a classic clay tile roof with half round copper gutters and round downspouts. The rounded entry turret has deeply inset windows reminiscent of early adobe construction. Chosen by the owners, a boutique in Santa Barbara carefully crafted the black wrought iron lanterns used throughout the house. Indivar Sivanathan
