Interior Residential Home
A home is where the heart is. And every heart has a lots to say, think and reflect. Windows in a modern day apartment are an immediate connect from your safe secure space to a world of the outdoors full of open sky, light and nature outside. Seating by a window often transports you into a world of thoughts where life slows down. Hence trying to achieve a window seat was the main intent during design and planning of this apartment.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
An Amalgamated Apartment, stripped down to mere skeleton to analyse the maximum available spaces which led to an efficient planning as per the clients requirements of a 4 Bedroom Apartment.
Apart from the requirements of a stylish urban apartment, the clients desired to have a home with the warmth of nature felt throughout the day. The broad daylight and the breezy cross ventilated characteristics of the apartment were to be retained and maximised with the design.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The entrance foyer welcomes you with a beautiful Horse bust and a customised artwork in backdrop. The Living room seating slowly starts revealing itself and shows the TV wall with etched pattern on the back painted glass cutting reflections at intervals. The seating with a backdrop of a beautiful canvas allows maximum daylight to enter through the string chair. The dining area with an alcove of its own utilises one of the window seating to host two people across a bench for the other two. The bedrooms then are individually placed further.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2015 and was stripped down to bare shell. The two individual apartments were then further amalgamated to fuse into one large 4 Bedroom apartment. The apartment was completed on march 2016 with all furnishings and final finishes for client occupancy.

The design research was initiated with understanding the family, its member and each members taste. The idea revolved around responding to each member's taste and developing a design around it. This process led to a very simple process of design and the result was showcased to each member on 3D illustrations.
The challenge was to develop each room with an identity of their own as well as bind them together as a family. this was majorly down with wooden base which varied in shades and gave us the approach for material selection.
