Built on a plot of 3600 sq.ft, this bungalow stands right in the dense neighborhood of the Ahmedabad area and the busy road passing by. The client had a clear checklist of requirements to accommodate certain luxurious amenities like a top-class bar lounge, home theatre, pool table, and gym area along with basic necessities. Our inspiration was the client himself, who loved and was passionate about his dream to have a high-end, luxurious home for his family of parents and two children. It’s a perfect blend of concrete greys and frondescence greens.
