Overlooking the hilly terrain of Panchawati, this apartment was conceived with the aim of keeping the footprint of any design intervention low and muted.
Designers at wished to make an abode contrary to the contemporary flashy norm that serves as comfortable refuge for its users.
Natural light, no false ceilings, and an Indian yellow kota stone floor brings about a charming warmth within this house. Wherever possible, old wood furniture was retained with the interior fit-out being meticulously planned around these units. Majority of the wood from the old house was re-purposed.
The kitchen was specifically designed for the use of traditional Indian stone & brass equipment as well as modern electrical gadgets. Carefully curated artworks are scattered all over the apartment.
Spaces were kept large and open in order to incorporate loose furniture. Ample cross ventilation and availability of maximum natural light was a design priority within the rooms.
