6. Paper Factory Hotel, NYC

The ‘Paper’ in the name hints to the extensive use of books and magazines in the interior design of the Hotel. The ‘Book Wall’ and ‘Book Staircase’ are exceptional additions. The luxuriously decorated hotel with a chic décor uses both traditional (wood and bricks) and modern (steel and glass) materials- making it ‘undeniably fashionable.

7. Savaroma Restaurant, NYC

Turkish elements were added as a design aesthetic, as demanded by the clients in the Savarona Restaurant. The cream and gold colored interiors have laser-cut Jaali screens, copper walls and surfaces highlighted by the plain chairs and tables. These different colors and textures were the key concepts of the design.

8. New Zealand Multi-Use Building, Auckland

The contrasting interiors and exteriors are the defining factor of this residential-cum-retail building. The façade, striped off any decorations transforms into the elaborately designed living space of the residence. The building stands out in the neighborhood because of it’s ‘blank look’ front having a few openings controlled by shutters. A rooftop dining was also provided by DHD Architects.

9. Catskills House, USA

This vacation home is ‘unconventional’- owing to its 150 feet long tin roof and hard-looking exteriors made of stacked stone walls and steel frames- which shift the focus from the surrounding mountains. Apart from an inbuilt ‘climbing wall’, the house has plywood and concrete flooring and large glass openings. This four-bedroom retreat has a modern kitchen infused with wooden stove.
