When materials, colours, textures, form and function come together in the perfect proportion; a beautiful symphony of calmness and happy space is formed. This sums up the design intent behind the house.

‘Simple, Clean and Minimal’ were the first and only words as a part of the client brief for this 3 BHK apartment. A family of four with a kid, parents and a grand-mother, the design had to cater to the requirements all three generations.
A timeless space with clean and contemporary interiors was designed with a touch of Indian aesthetics in calm and earthy tones. The heart of the house is the custom designed two way- pivot swing creating two separate zones of living spaces.
The swing created a sub conscious demarcation between the living space and the informal area where dining, balcony and swing together form an ideal spot for an afternoon chai. The custom designed white oak sofa with a band of cane detailing and the comfortable Kangaroo chair blends Modernist Indian aesthetics with clean functional lines of Scandinavian design in a unique way. The softness is brought in space by a simple ceiling curving on both the edges with an indirect glow of light washing the walls and binding all spaces together.
The open floor kitchen, being quite visible from living spaces has been designed such that it forms a strong backdrop for the living areas- a bright coloured wall dado arranged in a chevron pattern contrasting with the otherwise very neutral palette.
All bedrooms were designed keeping in mind client requirements in very contemporary Indian style with some elements like the turned-wood handles or the cane detailing reminiscent of traditional Gujarati homes.
The house overall follows a very earthy palette- light wood/veneer with a beige backdrop and terracotta highlights surrounded by greens in all balconies. Tranquil Symphony is an ode to the Modern Indian aesthetics of simplicity and minimalism.
