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.

Escaping the confines of shrinking urban homes and being out on balconies and elevated rooftop terraces is a great way to get some fresh air. Spacious or small, it is a great outdoor area to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book, fine dine or just relax. Most homeowners are resourceful and can adapt any terrace or balcony design to fit their needs. Before you finalize terrace ideas, browse through these rooftop space and balcony images to gain some inspiration.

How do I design a terrace?

Traditional homes were built to maximise outdoor space so it is no surprise that most old homes have a dedicated rooftop terrace. If you enjoy the privilege of a terrace, then ensure it is designed well. While renovating keep in mind the safety, style and purpose of this outdoor area. If you enjoy gardening and are restricted by space on the ground level, a terrace garden is the way to go. TTerrace gardens, like regular ones, can be as simple or elaborate as you need. You can cover the entire surface with soil to create a landscape or opt for a simple terrace garden design with pots. If you decide to landscape your terrace, ensure you waterproof the surface to avoid any leakage into your home. Concrete is the most common choice of flooring, but you can get creative with tact-tiles or red oxide tiles to add a splash of colour to this space.

What kind of terrace decor and furniture should I use?

Deck chairs and rattan chairs are great pieces of terrace furniture as they’re portable and can be moved around your rooftop garden easily — perfect for sun chasers. However, if you want to explore larger terrace designs, think about built-in benches or seating around the sides or corner of your rooftop. Add energy efficient solar lights to enjoy the space at night, and consider placing the lights at floor level to magnify the plants.

How do I make the most of my balcony design?

In most Indian homes the balcony is the smallest outdoor space, making it a design challenge. You can start by adding doors that open out fully, letting the air and light come in. This will help the balcony design seem like an extension of the indoor space.

If you have a small balcony, you can reserve it as a personal space by printing your personality in it. Small balconies should not be cramped with too many elements, skip the bulky balcony furniture and add a floor arrangement or hammock. If you don’t have enough space for plants, try to dedicate a wall for a hanging balcony garden.

Also, depending on your personality you can incorporate decor that involves soft textiles, beautiful vases and flowers. Try to add a small water element to create a sense of serenity and tranquillity.

Remember, a well-planned terrace or balcony can be the perfect retreat after a long day.
