Apr 23, 2019

Located on the outskirts of Surat, Wrapped Architecture is spread across 9,361.2 sq ft of plot area. The structure, which has been designed by Vatsaal Thakkar-lead Spacce, is known to create a balance in space by merging the exteriors within the interiors. A perfect mix of minimalism, curves and lines is reflected on its exteriors and interiors. The genre of this escape home revolves around rustic yet modern look, complementing its cosy lighting. Its basic layout is structured in a way that it divides the floor space lavishly between the rooms. Huge openings provide ample light and direct contact with nature, while the as artificial lighting is formulated using materials like wood logs, cement board, jute, etc.

The C-shape treatment on the façade wraps the floors, and unifies them together. Muted colour tone of the concrete along with warm lights, creates a subtle yet elegant look. The outdoor area is filled with soft-scape. Sheer nature of the railings provides an unhindered view into the lush green.

A special cutout is created over the casing of the ground floor, creating a geometric circular
void in a solid ceiling and allowing the tree below, grow and blossom to its full strength. Large
openings provide a direct contact with the nature outside. The need for green is met
adequately, making the building envelop its salient feature.


A swimming pool with a cascade fall, adds beauty to the landscape. The place is designed for relaxation and family gatherings. The experience lets you escape the busy day-to-day life and enjoy the silent and unheard stories of nature.

The chandelier of greens is an eye-catching feature of the house, which is placed parallel to the curve of the staircase. The non-traditional railing, made out of rope and hung from the head room, makes this space stand out. The stairwell wall is a combination of solid and jali work, thus providing ventilation.

The chandelier at the staircase is a highlight as it does not just possesses lights but also has beautiful creepers planted in a bamboo shoot that spiral around the suspenders of the chandelier. The combination of materials like exposed concrete, staircase in MS fabrication, jute rope and bamboo with greens, adds eminent features and beauty to the space.

The ground floor comprises of a capacious living room, parent’s bedroom and a kitchen and dining area. Large openings provide a direct contact with the exteriors surroundings. The lighting is in-house formulated. The house is embellished with minimal furniture in raw finished form to justify the spacious feel.

Raw wooden furniture are used in the parent’s bedroom. The colour palette that runs around the place is in earthen tones. Every space has a plank for lighting that is made either from cement board, jute or wooden logs.
