The Villa Tabebuia Offers Zen-Inspired Tranquility in Bangalore

In the bustling city of Bangalore, India, The Villa Tabebuia stands as a serene, Zen-inspired sanctuary with a contemporary Japanese-style designed by TaP Design Inc. The vision behind Villa Tabebuia was to create a space that exudes tranquility and elegance while maintaining a deep connection with its natural surroundings. Teakwood elements and organic accents adorn the home, seamlessly integrating it with the lush greenery that surrounds the property.

A close collaboration between the client and design studio led to keeping the structure’s existing shell with minimal modifications done to elevate the overall design. The result is a space that feels both luxurious and unassuming, a true escape from daily life. Spread across 15,000 square feet, Villa Tabebuia boasts a thoughtful layout that maximizes space and natural light. Upon entering the foyer, guests are greeted by a cascading bird chandelier that emphasizes the double-height ceiling.
