The proposal is a 1BHK sea view apartment located in Goa. The client, Rohit, is a food enthusiast who turned into a home chef in the 2020 pandemic. He lives with his wife and household, who helps him in his business. The objective was to make a traditional but minimalist design. The kitchen is at the heart of the house and opens into the dining area and living room without any visual barrier. The house is designed to make the kitchen the preeminent social space. The living room could be outstretched into a terrace to accommodate friends and guests on weekends and special occasions. A foldable bed at one end of the kitchen creates a temporary setting for home helpers without any encroachment on their privacy. The bedroom has minimalist furniture which steps up to the terrace for a calmer view. The materials are used repetitively with variations in textures and colours, which aid to the minimalistic, traditional ‘wada’ theme.
