About Brick Weave House

Nestled on the outskirts of Vadodara, the Brick Weave House presents a captivating blend of modern design and traditional craftsmanship. Designed by the Manoj Patel Design Studio in 2024, this 1,140-square-foot (106-square-meter) house showcases a unique approach to spatial planning and climatic responsiveness.

A Harmonious Interplay of Volumes and Passages

Embracing the corner plot’s unique constraints, the designers have crafted a home that caters to the needs of two generations, seamlessly blending privacy and shared experiences. The residence unfolds as a collection of architectural moments, connected through a series of varied volumes and passages.

Façade Screening: Addressing Climatic Considerations

Climatic factors have played a crucial role in shaping the building’s façade. The linear mass is punctuated by clusters of interlocking double-height surfaces, creating a dynamic visual landscape. At the junction, a crafted arch element infuses the design with a captivating focal point.

Brick Mastery: Infusing Depth and Texture

The façade’s palette of subtle tones and cladded bricks lends a rustic elegance to the structure. The art of brick patterns, a legacy of traditional craftsmanship, has been skillfully integrated as a compositional tool. Playful brick orientations and intricate geometric patterns captivate the eye, while aesthetic motifs enhance the joinery details.

Spatial Harmony and Functional Flow

The ground level welcomes guests with a bedroom and service areas, while the first floor features an open living-dining-kitchen concept, fostering barrier-free communication. The centrally placed dining area revolves around the staircase core, creating a dynamic interplay of volumes and passages.

Material Exploration and Lighting Embrace

Flooring combines green and white stone patterns, while the living room showcases a blend of wooden cladding and patterned tiles. Large openings invite an abundance of natural light, enhancing the airy comfort throughout the home.

Bedrooms: Personalized Retreats

The daughter’s bedroom exudes a monochromatic palette, with a free-flowing curve highlighting the openness of the large backdrop. The son’s master bedroom expresses harmony through curves, miniature wall tile art, and a random graphic flooring pattern.

Outdoor Retreat: A Skylit Haven
