Suffused with light and luxury, this apartment in Ahmedabad by STUDIO-IN-DTALE plays host to art and spatiality

A sprawling terrace, a living room with a double-height ceiling, stunning wall-art and a great view is what dream homes are made of. Bestowed with an interesting layout and proportions—Pooja Shah, Birju Shah and Dhara Shah, founding partners of Ahmedabad-based STUDIO-IN-DTALE, were entrusted with designing the interiors of this 3,800 sq ft home with abundant natural light, stunning volumes and expansive spaces.
Located on the fourteenth floor in upscale Ahmedabad, the apartment showcases a balance of textures and neutral colours at its soul with the rawness of lime plaster, the brilliance of brass and handwoven fabrics coming together to create a plush and congenial haven for the homeowners.
While the apartment offered many opportunities for experimentation with design, it also came with its set of challenges. The passage was the longest that the designers had encountered. “You can go for a walk in that passage!” laughs Shah. She continues, “We tried highlighting the length but also gave it small breakouts with wood details and brass sliding doors coupled with long blank walls.”
