To the left of the entrance door, a glamorous informal seating area exudes valour and amiability. The leather material palette and horse leather carpet create a gleaming vibe. The wooden rafters serve as a brilliant backdrop, installed at an angle to allow for fluidity of space between the areas. Moving further inside, a double-height dining area with a background wall displaying a flight of butterflies creates a romantic and picturesque atmosphere. A grand staircase on the left leads to the upper floor, where an open-to-sky cantilevered passage directs visitors to the home theatre cum family lounge. The 50-foot-long balcony on this floor offers a rejuvenating view of the sunset beyond the lush greens of the backyard.

The bedrooms on the upper levels are designed to create a dialogue with the outdoors, with enormous projections that enhance the contour and landscape. The house exudes immense character while also providing a reassuring sense of comfort and warmth.
