It’s a visually stunning elevation which greets visitors.
The plot had no shape in particular. It was then given separate shapes with different designs and landscaped aesthetically. The natural stone and green grass make the garden a visual treat. The lighting gives the house an ethereal look and it’s a magnificent sight by night.

A room like an airplane
The living room has been designed after the interior of an airplane. Brown-toned leather sofas have been arranged in symmetrical rows to give it the semblance of the mechanical bird. A wall here has wooden paneling with wallpaper highlighting the room decor. Marine ply has been used to brighten up the false ceiling and the hanging lights give the room its rich look.
A partition wall separates the formal living from the dining section. One side of the partition wall holds the TV unit inside a wood paneled space. The other side holds the wash counter. Stone claddings in grey provide an apt contrast to the paneled wood.
