Omkar Residence by We Design Studio

A project that celebrates the Danish concept of ‘hygge’, the art of creating intimacy.

We Design Studio believes that there lies an inherent sensuality in designing and building with restraint, order and control. The studio believes in exploring the underlying value of spatial principles in each of our projects; space is the protagonist. With an abiding interest in austerity and simplicity, the studio focuses its research on the fundamental problems of space, proportion, light and materials.

A project that celebrates the Danish concept of ‘hygge’, the art of creating intimacy. It is not necessarily an aesthetic but at its core is a celebration of simplicity, warmth, contentment and well-being. In its essence, this apartment is a restrained interpretation of luxury.

An expansive living-dining space anchors the kitchen and utilities on one side to the three bedrooms on the other. Pale grey limestone and recycled old Burma teak make for a rich color palette, which is further accentuated by a soft lighting scheme. The guestroom features movable walls, allowing flexibility in function.

The fluted glass infill used for all the doors of the apartment, allow natural light to seep into its depths. . The clean, bold planes that form the various spaces in the apartment make it feel contemporary and timeless.
