3. Create a central skylightHomes that are oriented the wrong way can be dark and devoid of light, but a centralised lightwell or skylight can filter light not only into a private courtyard, but to the rooms surrounding it. Entire walls of glass can be opened, blurring the lines between inside and outside.
11. Call of natureA heavenly rippled effect draws all the attention to this abundant water feature, hosted by a Bahrain villa designed by Hyderabad-based Moriq. Overarched by whisper-thin wire chandeliers and pinnacled by a lush spotlit tree, the waterbody dominates as the hero piece.
This space, designed by Moriq Interiors & Design Consultants exudes drama with the atrium recreating an oasis, complete with a skylight that floods the space with natural light. The pool of water and the plants give a sense of being outdoors.
