The public and private life are combined in a shielded open plan form – where at one time it is an extrovert design where all the spaces blends into a single entity, or else just shuts itself like an introvert, cutting public spaces from private spaces. The public spaces are business lounge & bar, office space and living spaces whereas private spaces forms bedrooms, kitchen & dining spaces. Being constructed on the top most floor of a very conventional type of apartment building in Indian setting, all the basic structural elements & services are well camouflage with exterior and interior design elements which becomes the feature of the house. Traces of color are splashed around in the furnishing and usage of traditional patterns in panelling adds a touch of warmth in the otherwise clean cut elegant design.
