Situated in Ahmedabad, the largest city and former capital of the western Indian state of Gujarat, this striking private residence named The Urbane House features the concept of “form follows function”. Envisioned and developed by Hiren Patel Architects, the residence presents a powerful indoor-outdoor connection through extensive use of glass.
According to the architects, “The entrance porch faces north which leads into a double height foyer, that is further connected to the family living and formal drawing room. The bedrooms, multipurpose room, dining room and kitchen open into a central space which is the family living room. A veranda visually connects the family living to the drawing room and serves as a transept between the private space of the family living and the surrounding lawns.”
