The brief was to completely re-design and re-build the pre-existing expanse of 2400 Sq.ft. The original 4BHK layout with one big master bedroom and three smaller rooms had to be re-modelled into a 3+1 configuration to achieve two big master en-suites, one Kid’s room and one multi-purpose Study Room. Taking into consideration the initial client brief, we planned a spacious, colour-rich House of Curves designed with open and airy spaces with loads of storage.

The client wanted a colour-rich, lit, bright home (quite literally). From the first few meetings with the clients, it was established that they had a strong natural affinity for curves over linearity.
The living room features a monolithic micro-concrete floor which extends seamlessly into the central passage-way, connecting all spaces of the home together and binding them in a shared ethos.
Enriched with a dual tone character, symmetrical geometry and brass inlays, the central passage has a rhythmic cadence; and is somewhat representative of the home identity – stressing on the notion of play and harmony in everyday life.
A generous use of two bold yet balancing hues in the design – a flamboyant green and a calm blue – dominates most spaces in the home without being overbearing on the underlying clean aesthetic.
The intent of the design is to open up and manipulate existing volumes by bringing in additional natural light, creating ample storage and utilising a combination of colours, textures, geometry and natural materials to achieve a poised space offering visceral pleasure to its residents.
The idea was to envision a home that serves a sense of stability, balance, and comfort; amidst a chaotic urban lifestyle.
Conforming to traditional practices, the eldest member in the family was not entirely in favour of an open kitchen layout; which led to a functional segregation of the kitchen into two zones – a Dry (working & serving) area and a Wet (washing) area, the latter being fairly concealed and tucked away.
Opening up and connecting the kitchen-dining area, further made room for natural light to enter and spread beautifully across spaces.
A pronounced (albeit fastidious) presence of curved elements lends an elegant human quality to the home interiors. The bedrooms in The House of Curves, all carry a distinct disposition and energy in resonance with the end user.
One of the master en-suites is equipped with a walk-in wardrobe, window lounge seating and work desk. The biggest challenge while designing this suite, was to build around a steeply slanted primary wall adjoining another apartment.
The home has been designed for longevity with highly durable and low-maintenance materials like concrete and lime plaster; along with sustainable organic materials like wood, terracotta and natural stone. Most of the furniture has been custom designed and built in-house.
Highly efficient air-purifying plants like Fiddle Leaf Fig and Dracaena have been given their own dedicated breathing spaces within the home. Most of the wastage has been repurposed to create elements such as clocks, handles, bespoke lights or furniture accents. Double glazed windows and VRV System help to keep the home energy-efficient.

he kids’ room has been designed to playfully express an earthy, raw and robust nature; providing adequate avenues to personalise and get creative with the many spaces within the room.
The taper was corrected in layers – by introducing a White Quartz and Fluted Wood Feature Block at one end; a storage cabinet at another; and a suede-draped bed back nested in the recess so created, to yield a picture-perfect room. T
wo existing rooms were merged together to create the second master en-suite for the elderly parents. The fourth room was fashioned to serve as a multi-purpose study cum Pooja room for the residents.
The design process was heavily dependent on understanding what each resident fancied for the different spaces in the home, to enable collective bliss within the domestic space.
was about three iterations and multiple to-and-fros with the client(s) later, that the final solution was arrived upon, striking a balance between the residents’ whims and the designers’ aspirations for the home.
