Conviviality, Warmth, Light And A Traditional Touch To The Apartment Design | Vibrant Spaces

Located in the Bustling city of Chennai, near AVM Studios, is the Ms. Rama residence project. The ambition of the project is to bring conviviality, warmth, light and a traditional touch to the apartment design. Our main focus was to transform an modern shell to an Authentic Home.

Conviviality, Warmth, Light And A Traditional Touch To The Apartment Design | Vibrant Spaces

Art has an undeniable presence in this home, with sculptural pieces & hand painted murals throughout. A neutral theme can be observed throughout the home with statement pieces that highlight the space they are placed in. 

The palette of materials comes down to “Woody” textures with accent flooring (Aathangudi tiles), which contributed to the overall traditional look of the house, especially the living & dining area.

Light cream walls complement a floating ceiling, cleverly concealing the general lighting in the apartment. The linearity continues onto the TV wall, emphasizing the overall height of the space. We paired a sand-coloured sofa with a tan-coloured ottoman to break the monochrome palette”.

A traditional swing has been added as additional seating furniture, facing the balcony hence to experience a beautiful view in the evenings.

The so called “Thinnai” space with a traditional pillar along seater, defines the circulation and views of the house, making it the heart of the house. The seating area act as a separator between the two main rooms of the house, the living room and the dining room, places where the family usually gathers.

The wooden ceiling along the passage gives an outline to the overall space & the grooved wooden ceiling marks out the dining & formal living space.

The kitchen had a major drawback of lacking in natural light due to a wall in-between kitchen & utility space. We had to do some civil alterations by breaking down the wall thus allowing the natural light into the kitchen.

We made sure we had the continuity in the home intact through a repetitive colour palette. Wood textured cabinetry and a milky-white backsplash frames the kitchen, accentuating the volume of the kitchen.

Most of the appliances are concealed inside the cabinets therefore the kitchen looks uncluttered. The additional tall unit that has been put on in the utility space became pantry storage with a small portion allocated to store cleaning accessories.

The east facing room, the master’s bedroom, is tucked in and plush, adjacent to a large balcony, thus flooded with ample natural light. The Master bedroom adorned in muted shades upholstered in neutral colours like beige, biscuit shades.

Neatly tucked into a niche is a Dresser unit in warm veneer on the side panels, which also wraps onto the wardrobes sides.

In Daughter’s bedroom we had to work with tight spaces, large storage requirements, and still enough area to move around freely. With efficient planning, we utilized every niche to accommodate concealed storage.

We designed a cozy, contemplative bay seater with natural light streaming in through the window. A crisp white ceiling permeates more airiness to the space. A dual grey-toned bed rests against a half white wall with a portrait painting.
