Entering the foyer, patterned floor creates an impression of carpet in black and white strips standing out boldly as a welcoming element. The corner wall mural defines the green character of plantation enhanced with both lighting to add a soft glow to the scene and to hold small plants in a vertical sculpture.
The perforated doorway demonstrates a see through jail in subtle color graphics to define a modern theme-based foyer. Further the interior is artfully designed by merging of the vernacular material, which is affordable to everyone.
A corner wall shelf in striking graphics, or flat bricks pattern above the vibrant comfortable blue seating, a colorful wall hanging artifact offering a picturesque view transforms expression of classical feel with timeless beauty for the space.
The living room and kitchen walls were partly removed from the concrete element, connecting the two areas that maintain visual permeability. Precise craftsmanship ensures this profile in flat brick pattern to convey character through simple variation.
