Flaunting facets of romantic roots in its form, the residence is an alluring amalgam of Parisian charm and contemporary New York city character. Tones of wood, marble, metal and glass make up a minimal mood board striking a fine balance between functional and artful design. 

Imbuing an inviting impression right from the entrance of the home is the foyer. Meticulously fitted mirrored wall panelling reflects the black and white marble inlay patterned flooring, expending the narrow space with a scopic illusion.
