Lakeshore Residence: Elegant Architecture with Indian Influences

Elegant architecture with Indian influences / Miro Rivera Architects

Lakeshore Residence from Houston, Texas, was designed by Miro Rivera Architects for a client originating from Gujarat, India. He wanted a big residence that can accommodate his family’s extended visits. Also, the client desired to incorporate elements of Indian traditions in his home design. The architects had to study the specific Indian architectural aspects such as: stone domes, step-wells, and towers that are specific to the indian temples and the puja room (worship of the deities in Hindu religion). Therefore, the Lakeshore Residence combines subtle Indian influences with a modern architectural geometry.

The owner requested the use on a wide scale of white stone and glass. The architects have combined white stone with copper outside and white stone with wood inside. The earth colors, wood in particular contrast with the pure white, that supports the big windows, making the interior to be of extraordinary brightness. The Indian emphasis on the interior and outdoor design has made the surrounding landscape seem as a continuation, a natural extension of the architecture. The generous balconies and an outdoor living room provide access to air and light while the step-wells, remind the owner of Gujarat. The facade of the house made predominantly of glass, the big windows and sliding doors offer the possibility to take full advantage of the beautiful view of the river Huston.
