Ganesha-Blessed Simplicity: Dinesh Mills Bungalow, Vadadora, Gujarat
The Dinesh Mills Bungalow, designed by adnD, outside Vadodara, in the State of Gujarat, Western India, is a creature of immense simplicity. Its spine is a driveway, from which the main floor plan extends, with its simple lines, ample windows, impeccable lawn, external staircase, three verandahs and crystal clear pool, closely communicating with the great outdoors of a land rich in design history. Step inside, to see parallels and perpendiculars intersecting and running along each other, in a mixture of post-modern, simple, dynamic spaces. The decorative accents will bring you back to India, via unmistakable arabesques, gilded cows and graceful Ganeshas. This is the home of a family of three and their staff.
