When this bunch of friends approached us, we realized the structure was already done, with floor slabs and columns finished. We had to now, finish up the space for them in totality, meaning doing up the building as a whole. We had to do more than just Interiors that way.
What was unique about this site was the lovely view it had. Luckily adjacent to few acres of open land with a very naturally wild landscape, lovely bit of boulders.
We could spot peacocks every other day. We had completely reworked the civil structure from what the earlier designer had proposed, to a new proposal to open up the whole building to capture these views.
We went ahead, in keeping the entire eastern facade open to the view, letting it that lovely morning sun. Fenestration was planned in a way to capture every bit of the view.
The users of the space don’t really need anything to relax but to just lookout to take a chill. Pleasant to the eyes, the view is beautiful at different times of the day, and changing seasons.
All five floors have a view from their drawing/living, kitchen areas. The design was thought-about to capture most of the eastern view making it a lovely morning/day space to be.
The client was very particular to keep the theme in Achromatic majorly. Thus we attained a simple design.
We all realized how having a view was an asset, not just to space, but how much it does to an internal space in shaping a home, into a healthy and positive space.
