'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.

A passageway connects the foyer to the living room, where a triple-height ceiling and a wall almost entirely composed of sweeping fin windows visually expand the room. The accent wall serves as a canvas for a digitally developed wallpaper as a pichwai artwork. A trad wooden swing completes the seating area. “Through handpicked local elements, we tried to bring in the essence of Gujarati culture in a contemporary avatar,” says Gujarathi.Sofas are custom-madeFind an interior designer on Houzz
