AIS and Tarun Tahiliani to develop unique Glass Villas in Goa


India’s leading integrated glass manufacturer, Asahi India Glass Ltd. (AIS) and famous fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani have announced their conglomeration for the development of first of its kind project which is Unique Glass Villas in Goa. The project will be developed in Nachinola village of Goa.


AIS Villa or Ahilia Homes is a fusion of contemporary and local architecture with a modern interior done by the Tarun Tahiliani design house. Apart from him, the villa has been architecturally designed by Sameep Padora and Bindu Vadera of Ahilia homes.


Situated amidst lush greens and the backwaters of Goa, the two-floor AIS Glass Villa will have a built-up area of 6,628 sqft. It will have 4 bedrooms, including a very natural master bedroom en-suite bath, which includes a special cove study area & massage rooms. Along with this, it also has a 2900-sqft landscaped garden with a private glass infinity pool.


The AIS glass products which will be used in designing the exteriors, as well as interiors, will not only cut the UV radiations coming from outside but have other benefits too such as safety, security, and privacy for its residents. Furthermore, it will also eliminate dust from entering the interiors, and reduce outside noise by up to 42 decibels. All these features will make this villa a perfect, tranquil and supremely serene experience to live.


Giving more information about the AIS villa, Mr. Aditya Bhutani, COO, AIS Glasxperts said, “The AIS Glass Villa has recast the principles of Indian craftsmanship in a contemporary avatar. The Villa is being given monumental very façade so that there is no invasion of privacy from outside. We have also used some of the best glass products from the AIS portfolio such as the burglar-proof AIS Security glass which delivers a very high level of intrusion resistance, AIS Décor coloured lacquered glass, and the energy-efficient AIS Ecosense, which is considered to be the green standard in a glass, to name just a few. With our expertise in glass selection and installation, we’re going to ensure that while the aesthetic value of the AIS Villa is high, it does not compromise on the functional aspects of a living space, so the Villa is just beautiful to look at, but will also be very safe and comfortable to live in.”


“In our architectural projects, we have always looked at what made Goan homes special.  What has stood the best of time, what should be retained and what should be replaced or enhanced by technology to ensure that the user experience is sublime, in this return to nature. The three main features of the living room are the double-height ceiling, sunken seating pit and a dining around a cluster of trees almost at the level of water. The dining room also includes a game corner which is built around the smaller courtyard around the cluster of existing matured trees.” Added Tarun Tahiliani.


The AIS Villa’s is scheduled to be ready between July-August 2018.
