In the heart of Vadodara city, heaven and earth meet, at Yahvi. It is a sophisticated yet humble abode of a real-estate businessman who lives with his family. Air, water, earth and light, the elements of nature are more pronounced at every corner of Yahvi. This contemporary structure, designed by the marquee Usine Studios is impeccably integrated with the ancient Indian Science of Architecture – The Vastu Shastra.
A chiselled marble statue of a man looking upwards and the pergolas arching over is the highlight of the courtyard. The enormous glass windows encased in the walls open out to the courtyard making the statue visible from all corners within. It extends to a water body feature by the wall surrounded by the rich green plants completing the central courtyard, which is the most private space to share with family and the heart of Yahvi.
The palette of subdued colours flows along with the interiors of Yahvi benevolently with shades of soft blue, pale grey, dull-white and green owning up space at large. The yellow armchairs add a dash of vibrancy by fusing with the other colours and spreading the energy of cheer in the already pleasant living space. And, the chic grey chandelier which gracefully suspends from a magnificent wooden ceiling complements the walls with Solemn Grey by Asian Paints.
The exclusive low-lying cot with grey upholstered bed panel complements the grey coffer ceilings with wooden borders making it look upmarket while the fan is camouflaged with the ceiling. The paintings with shades of blue and grey accentuate against the white walls.
The carpet of lush green grass is a prominent feature for that breath of fresh air which flows around the premises in abundance. The peripheral walls of the house are an interplay of different kinds of bricks.
The selection of sombre hues for the walls and the furniture upholstery complement the exposed ceilings created with Solemn Grey by Asian Paints. This colour breathes new life into your space and injects it with a carefree playfulness.
The gloss from the grey floors meets the earthy True Ochre shade by Asian Paints on one side of the wall filling the space with an amiable atmosphere appropriate for guests. Upon entering, you can experience the aura of freshness.
