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 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

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.
