Asahi India Glass Ltd.(AIS) India’s leading integrated glass manufacturer recently announced its association with designer Tarun Tahiliani for a first-of-its-kind project – AIS Glass Villa.
A fusion of contemporary and local architecture, AIS Villa is being built in the village of Nachinola in Goa. The villa will be developed by Ahilia Homes, a boutique interior and architectural team led by the TarunTahiliani design house with support from AIS Glasxperts, the architectural division of AIS that specializes in applied glass. In keeping with the spirit of India Modern, this glass and laterite villa is a befitting tribute to the marriage of tradition and technology.
A classic Goan courtyard structure has been reinterpreted with steel columns, giant glazing folds out glass doors, and glass chambers in the bedrooms through which old trees retain their beauty, keeping the light and form, unique by any structural standards. The villa has been designed architecturally by Sameep Padora in concert with the vision of TarunTahiliani and Bindu Vadera of Ahilia homes. The project is the orchestration of Jahan Tahiliani of Ahilia Homes and with the support from Glasxperts.
