From DRDO to IIT-Mumbai: A Professor's Journey to Building His Dream Home
'As I step onto the project site of the upcoming bungalow, my senses are immediately struck by the pristine natural beauty of Pirangut. Surrounded by lush green hills and dotted with clear blue water bodies, this taluka in Pune district is truly a haven for nature enthusiasts. The location of the project site couldn't be more perfect - nestled in the heart of this serene landscape of the bungalow, this promises to offer an unparalleled living experience. As I take a closer look at the construction progress, I can't help but feel excited about the prospect of developing a piece of this tranquil paradise.' - Lead Designer, Seema Sancheti.
Site and Environment:
The location's natural contour adds value in reinforcing the natural tendency to reside with overhangs. This helps the residents participate with the beautiful sunsets of the place.
Only some projects get the opportunity to justify their context, i.e environment, desire & motive. This case study will show you the promising steps in developing an aesthetically pleasing and functionally apt bungalow.
Our process involves checkpoints in the journey of various milestones to safeguard the project from going off tangent. This protects our clients from delays in the project.

Developing the Solution
The creation of this floor plan involved a meticulous architectural process that considered the site's unique characteristics and the client's specific needs.
Our team of led by Lead designer Seema Sancheti worked closely with Mr. Pradeep to understand his vision and design preferences. We carefully considered the site's orientation to maximize natural light and ventilation while ensuring privacy and security.
The ground floor layout was designed to provide seamless connectivity between the common areas, allowing for comfortable and private living spaces. The bedrooms on the first floor were designed with attention to detail, including generous walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms. Finally, the private study on the second floor was designed to provide Mr. Pradeep with a comfortable and peaceful workspace to suit his specific requirements.
We are confident that our architectural process has resulted in a floor plan that meets and exceeds Mr. Pradeep's expectations, and we can't wait to see his dream home come to life.
Our design process included thoroughly analysing the site's features and the surrounding landscape to create an elevation that blends seamlessly with the natural environment. We have used modern and traditional architectural elements to create a unique and timeless design that will turn heads.
The front elevation features a grand entrance with a striking facade sets the tone for the luxurious interiors. We have incorporated large windows and balconies to provide stunning views of the surrounding landscape while maximising natural light and ventilation. The materials used in the elevation design have been carefully selected to complement the overall design aesthetic and provide long-lasting durability.
Understanding the unique aspects of your site is crucial to the success of the construction process. As part of our site development process, we have observed several measures to understand the unique characteristics of your site.
Our team has analysed the site's topography, orientation, and surrounding landscape to determine the optimal location for your dream home. We have also conducted a thorough assessment of the soil quality to ensure that it is suitable for construction.
Process and Outcome
The process typically starts with a detailed consultation with the client to understand their vision, preferences, and requirements for their dream home. The team then thoroughly analyses the site and surrounding landscape to identify the best location for the home's construction. This analysis considers site orientation, topography, and soil quality to ensure that the design solutions harmonise with the site.
Based on this analysis, the team develops a range of design options presented to the client, taking their feedback into account to further refine the design. Detailed architectural plans, elevations, and 3D visualisations are then created to bring the design to life and ensure it meets the client's vision.
Throughout the process, the team works closely with the client to ensure that every design aspect is perfect. Attention is paid to every detail, from the selection of materials to the layout of each room, to ensure the design is functional, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing.
The result is a stunning design perfectly tailored to the client's unique requirements and reflects their personality and lifestyle. With the right team, developing the perfect architecture solutions for a client's dream home is an exciting and rewarding.
