A marble production facility covering 95,000 sqft designed at Krishnagiri. The requirements were to provide a factory-esque building for the manufacture of high quality marble where raw materials were sourced from multiple countries abroad.

A house designed with a vision to amalgamate tradition with the contemporary. Traditional Indian design elements were incorporated to give a polished, rustic look to the home interiors.

Bringing the essence of ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ interiors to a residence. The living area was given an open floor plan and a set of floating stairs was incorporated to ensure the feeling of openness. A 1.5 floor ceiling height further enhanced the grandeur of the space.

In keeping with the primary client specification – ‘Wood’, this corporate guest house was designed to give a sense of luxurious comfort to its occupants.

The building had to be iconic but not overbearing, sophisticated but not complex and contemporary yet respecting and honoring the values of a Goan family. The concept of the design was focused around the play of light and shadow, solids and voids. Colours and tones reflecting luxury and elegant opulence were chosen in a predominantly white setting. Visual connectivity was given prime importance by incorporating double heights and an open to sky courtyard that served to enhance the feeling of openness in the space.
