'The Grandeur of the Bungalow in Penthouse'

It’s not every day that you come across a house that makes you wonder if you’re really amidst the hustle and bustle of a city life! This dazzling duplex penthouse starts off with an entrance embedded with rich, natural wood, finished off with beaten copper. This lends a certain earthiness to the space and just like that, your visual appetite is hungry to take in more! Once inside, the soaring ceiling and expansive windows unite to create a light-filled living room, leaving you with the room’s grand sense of space. The first thing that catches your eye is the Pichwai art that spans an entire wall of the living room, followed by a striking wooden swing, by including these local elements, we have combined contemporary with the essence of Gujarati culture. The prime attraction of the house is the triple height central area that starts with an exposed brick wall and concludes with a skylight on top. Situated in this central area is the tastefully designed staircase with segments of polished wood and raw iron segments that merge seamlessly with rest of the decor. The entire east side of the house opens up internally by means of vertical fins, creating an aesthetic dance of shadow and light, whilst also ensuring that the house receives ample cross ventilation. Brilliant use of pivoted windows is spotted in the living room with different colour palettes on both its sides to compliment the space they fall in. All the designs reflect distinctive use of natural textures and palettes ranging from beaten copper, traditional fabrics, polished and unpolished kota, exposed concrete & brick combination, adding a sense of wholesomeness to the entire area. The house gives a sense of liveliness and comfort, with a hint of moody tones here and there.

Hushed greys and rich timber have been used in the master bedroom. The bed, mounted on a double-decker wooden platform, is the centrepiece of the room. Natural wood warms the floor, while the walls sport an interplay of mustard paint and grey geometric wall panelling.“We were fortunate to be given carte blanche when it came to the decor, colour schemes, furniture and fabrics,” says Shah.Flooring: Action Tesa; bed and furnishings are custom-made
