On upper floor level existing apartment has been rectify into showroom by creating two linear walls parallel to each other creating a space of 10 ft between amongst them in order to create a space for interaction of clients. further, in between one center space has been left open in order to create a space for bridal-stand on which bridal can stand and can display herself on opposite arches wall. Full long mirror been used on East side wall which helps to create a depth of showroom to feel of double size and also give sense of positive feel as an entrance in showroom.


As to match cultural ethic, our clients are from Vohra community and hence out of two linear walls on wall is been design with Arches and jail, where arches can be used from storage section and jail can be used to create ambience light for showroom, whereas on opposite wall, MS section was staggered into different heights in order to create display of bridalears clothes which can stagger at different heights.


Existing plumbing duct of apartment was being covered with linear display wall by which face of duct has been covered with furniture arches and jail wall. Ahead two corners of apartment (north-east and north-west) attached with duct, been plan as a store room and pantry with attached toilet. Purpose of pantry was also to be used also as changing room where bride can use a private space for changing the cloths. Blue checks mosaics was used in pantry along with dark blue flooring which in-turn converts a feel of space of pantry to as changing room where bride don’t feel as a separate mundane space different to showroom.
