“From Concept to Concrete”, is the work-mantra of Kreative House – a young and vibrant, multi-disciplinary firm with a team of architects, interior designers, civil engineers, research assistants and surveyors. Founded in 2002 by Medha Kakade, who received her architectural degree from Appasaheb Birnale College of Architecture in 1999. Her first job was with the reputed architectural and interiors’ firm of Sangli–Parikh Associates. Kreative House has grown in size and credibility – handling more than twenty five projects a year. In 2012 Pavan Kakade joined Medha and her team.
Pavan, having studied Architecture, joined HDFC (HOMES) as their in-house architect, and later moved to AHIDCO (Aditya Housing & Infrastructure Development Corporation) as the Chief Architect. He quit his job in 2012, and joined Medha in the now very well-established Kreative House.
The team designs and executes customized amenities to suit individual personalities and needs of the clients. Projects handled by the studio reflect their focus on good space planning, explorations with varied decor styles, and minute attention to detail.
Kreative House shares with Gallopper the details of their project at Vessella Homes, which is a premium gated community project located in, Kondapur, Hyderabad and has 98 high-end villas, each having an area of 3667 sq. ft.
The client, Mr. Bhasker Reddy is self-made successful business man with business interests in real estate and cement etc; he has a small family with two sons. His brief was that the interiors should look classic and contemporary and should have a fresh and elegant look and feel. Kreative House was involved in the project from its early stages and therefore had a say in all materials used and their finishes.
The double height dining wall is clad with Italian marble. For the false ceiling they have used materials like dark black glass and brown smoked mirror, among others in order to get a contemporary look and feel.
Lot of intricate fretwork was used with high end paint finishes to give classy yet modern look to the interior wood work. For the uninitiated : Fretwork is an interlaced decorative design that is either carved in low relief on a solid background, or cut out with a fretsaw, coping saw, jigsaw or scroll saw. Most fretwork patterns are geometric in design. The materials most commonly used are wood and metal.
In the bedrooms, full height wardrobes with white lacquered toughened glass sliding shutters were used to make them look lighter and subtle. A low height bed was used in son’s bedroom while standard height bed in master bedroom and guest bedroom.
The living and dining areas are separated with intricate fretwork with high end finishes for privacy. The premium kitchen is modular with HGL finish shutters and fitted with soft close accessories of premium brands.
A home theatre has been provided and has been designed considering both acoustic and lighting requirements, besides it being a warm and cozy area.
The terrace is partially covered with artificial grass and is a place to entertain guests.
