This multi-generational abode used textures, material and tones to transform traditional forms into the present capsule of time.
For this Chennai based residence of approx. 10500 sqft, the influx of ideas on our blank slate was quite overwhelming. Designing this multi-generation user abode was not a challenge, but a unique experience in itself as the predefined set of traditional forms gave us immense scope to experiment on this luxury residence with textures, material and tones such that it fit perfectly in the present capsule of time. Embellishments of cultural significance from time and zones apart with nostalgic edges juxtaposed against the marvelous shades of marble-flanking volumes while adding a different perspective.
We have consciously selected the fifth wall (being the rug) to tie the room together very subtly and add a touch of demure glamour to the space. Its tranquil yet luxurious adding that sophisticated charm. Giving rise to a timeless & surprising environment, permeated with lovely pieces of art all around the house.
Yes, the house is fully Vaastu compliant, pragmatic yet luxurious to suit the ebb- and-flow of everyday life.
