The homeowners wanted to establish a distinctive character for their neighbourhood with a home that is minimalistic and uncluttered. And with its built area, the designers were able to fulfil the homeowners’ requirements in every way possible.

Tour every turn of this interactive home

One enters the home through a paved path alongside a covered parking spot towards the left and the entrance door on the right. This door opens into a double-height living space which extends itself to the dining area with a kitchen towards the back.

Similar to floor one, the second floor has a lobby followed by a bedroom towards the rear side and a multi-purpose space that opens onto the two-side open terrace. These interiors are all designed keeping in mind the greenery which is purposefully brought inside by the designers.

After having experimented with volume, it is safe to say that the visual interaction of this space allows for a perfect sense of connection. With materials such as brick, natural oak wood, black basalt salt and terracotta jail modules, this home boasts an array of textures. Moreover, the subtle home has splashes of colours here and there that add to its contemporary charm.

What the designer fell in love with

A multipurpose space on level two is perfect for relaxing and leisure activities like movie and social evenings. Furthermore, the front façade is characterised by cantilevered canopies which creates an interesting composition when the building is viewed from different locations!
