Apartment In Mumbai

This modern and opulent 4 BHK apartment in Mumbai has been designed with a luxurious interior that reflects a modern and sophisticated aesthetic. One of the most striking features of the apartment is the use of white marble flooring that adds a luxurious look and a reflective quality, creating openness. The apartment also incorporates fluting elements on the walls that create a sense of depth and texture, making the walls more visually attractive.

The modular kitchen’s sleek and modern design features state-of-the-art appliances and custom cabinetry that maximizes storage space. This space incorporates marble accents on the walls and a special glass with gold leafing that adds an opulent look. An admixture of custom-made, imported, and carved furniture at the site by skilled craftsmen brings an excellent finish to the apartment’s interior design. The temple in the apartment has been designed to be closed to preserve the sanctity of the space, and open when the residents want to worship.

Farmhouse In Ahmedabad

The sprawling farmhouse is located on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. The design offers a contemporary and harmonious blend of traditional and modernist elements. The bold façade, exquisite flooring and chosen light fixtures stand out from the surrounding landscape, while concrete and steel were incorporated to create a striking appearance. An outdoor sunken sitting space has been designed to bring users close to nature.

Natural materials like wood and stone have been used to add warmth and comfort to the space, while large windows and skylights flood the rooms with natural light, creating a bright and airy feel. This project is a testament to how traditional and modernist design elements can be combined to create a beautiful and functional living space that seamlessly connects with nature.

The bungalow has a Japandi style, which combines Japanese minimalism and Scandinavian aesthetics to create a serene and inviting living space that is both practical and stylish yet minimal. The bedrooms are located on the upper floor of the bungalow, providing privacy and tranquility. Each of the five bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom, ensuring that every member of the family has their own private space.
