Villa 14 - Ruskin Island
Located in the secluded Island called “Ruskin Island” where there are very few and selected plots of land which shares a serene view of extended Bolgoda lake at the rear of the site. The island features a common amnesties facility which include a club house with a swimming pool, a bar and an entertainment area. The island is approached via barge and there are two barges which connect the land with the island.
We wanted to create a series of gardens and buildings which finally end with the lush and peaceful view of the lake with the myriad of lotuses and water plants and birds. The material of choice was raw stone and concrete and glass.
The front section of the compound was flanked with guest bedrooms and service building and courtyards. Thereafter, one enters into the main courtyard which separates the front from the main building. The living room and swimming pool are connected together. The main bedrooms are on the first floor.
