Grand Meets Green in a Stunning Residence by NA Architects


Set in the affluent neighborhood of Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad, India, is the stunning NR House designed by NA Architects. A beautiful and sustainable masterpiece with a Platinum IGBC Green home rating and grand meets modern rustic decor.

“The main goal was to achieve sustainability with luxury. We wanted to showcase that eco-friendly homes can be luxurious. Since this is our private house, we had complete creative freedom to experiment with the concept,” said the design couple, NA Architects principals Niroop and Rupana Reddy.

Inside NR House

The interior of NR House features clear open spaces, creating a gallery-like feel. A perfect setting to showcase NA Architects’ attention to sustainability, reflected in a number of ways. First, with the creation of spaces where indoors and outdoors unite. Then through the natural palette, and use of semi-precious and natural stone throughout the home. NR House also showcases the design duo’s eye for exquisite decor.

The Formal Living Room

The magnificent front door opens up to the home’s formal living room. Rustic stone and slatted wood panels are the backdrop to a seating area with caramel leather sofas and two REVE Mirrors by KOKET. Along the back wall sits another beautiful Portuguese designed piece, a limited edition white Mondrian Sideboard by the acclaimed brand, Boca do Lobo.

The Family Living Room

The family living room is an extension of the formal double-height living room. Here, a stone-clad wall forms a backdrop for the sofa and Boca do Lobo’s Wave Cocktail Table while the fireplace and TV share a wood-paneled wall unit.

At the back of the family living room, several pieces of boulders shaped into stairs lead to the heart of the home.

The Dining Room

The dining room sits past this foyer like space. Yet another beautifully designed room, The Heritage Dining Table by Boca do Lobo takes center stage along with a statement swirling glass chandelier. The room also opens out to the home’s east facade and pool.

Indoor-Outdoor Living

Down the east side of the home, a serene lap pool stretches the entire length of the ground floor, blending indoor-outdoor living. A covered pool deck with seating seals the deal on the creation of a perfect place for entertaining indoors and out.

The Upper Floors

A geometric wood and iron staircase leads to the home’s second and third floors and the more private parts of the home—the master suite and children’s rooms.

Sitting Room

Upon arriving on the home’s second floor one is met by the back of the stunning Versaille Sofa by Boca do Lobo. This pass-through TV room also features a whimsical hanging cage-like chair.

The Children’s Rooms

The son’s room sprawls from the second to third floor with a lounge and study on the lower level and a sleeping area with a bathroom on the upper one.

The daughter’s room features a modern meets classic theme with feminine vibes. Handmade porcelain flowers by the brand Villari adorn the room’s walls draping the space in elegance. A playful work of art over the dresser adds a modern flair.
