"Taula House" is a single-family residence designed for a multi-generational family in Texas. The name “Taula” is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “Balance.” Guided by the Hindu architecture principles of Vastu shastra, this modern dwelling expresses a balance between traditional beliefs and contemporary ideologies of design. Symmetry, spatial geometry, and delicate detailing were all paramount to the design success of the project.
A minimalist approach to interior finishes focuses attention on the architecture and precise steel detailing of the house. Highlights of the exterior palette make their way into the house with a refined use of weathered steel panels and basalt stone floors and walls. (source)
