Abutting the living space is the puja area with a surrounding water body and a double-height ceiling.
1. In this home, the puja room is surrounded by a kund or water body inspired by traditional Indian temple tanks. The tiny waterfall and sunken pool, plus the sunlight streaming from above, help create a perfect indoor-outdoor feel.Tip: It’s important to install an automatic refilling device and a filter to help maintain water levels and water quality. Stagnant, dirty water can lead to algae formation.
4. Waters of worshipThis character-filled Surat home by Studio Lagom frames the entrance of its puja room with a pebble-strewn, sun-kissed waterbody with stepping stones. Given its length, the bespoke path serves to build a sense of anticipation on the lead-up to the puja room.
4. These square black flooring tiles form ‘stepping stones’ leading to the puja room and are wide enough to walk or stand on comfortably. The clear pool of water with a bed of dark and taupe pebbles gives the sense of a natural pond that needs crossing to get to the shrine. Black flooring from the living room flows on to this space as skirting, so the spaces are separate but connected.
