Lounge Interior With An Eclectic Sense Of Luxury And Comfort | Design Ethics Architecture Studio
Space was visualized with the want of sophistication taking relevance from classic European vibes which translates into the choice of finishes and color story.
It is very rare that you find clients who have so much faith in you that they give you a free hand in deciding what should be done with the concept, even the name and use of the property.
ESSEX Farms in New Delhi is one such client for us, having been in association for many years now. They came to us with another exciting and special project which also is inside the campus of Essex Farms. This time, it was a small area that had to be converted into a small banqueting space. The studio started working extensively at developing a space that would be a visual break-through and speak miles about the eclectic sense of luxury and comfort.
The development of the space kick-started after the design team conceived the idea of having a living-room kind of a set up for formal parties in place of a cliché banquet. The challenge was to convert a dilapidated industrial shed, aging almost 50 years, into an uber-luxe formal lounging space and the task was taken up in high spirits.
The floor plan was resolved by creating clusters of seating with an elaborate fire-place as its backdrop and subsequently tucking the formal buffet counter in a dedicated space. The two areas are segregated by a row of elegant pendant lights rather than a divider or a partition to have a feel of an inclusive environment.
Space was visualized with the want of sophistication taking relevance from classic European vibes which translates into the choice of finishes and color story. Running traditional wainscoting ties up the place together which is finished in an alluring taupe shade of color.
A distinctive take on French panels was evolved by abstract cohesion of multiple reflective surfaces which becomes the highlight of the space. In order to bring a sense of warmth and homeliness, an intricately detailed fireplace was introduced which is adorned by vintage hand-made ceramic artwork.
A series of art collections and frames were handpicked to dress up the walls and an exquisite console keeping the reminiscent of the vintage European set up in the forefront.
The lighting of the space is consciously designed by highlighting the features and disregarding the industrial metal sections in the ceiling above. Massive chandeliers and wall lights do not fall short in bringing spunk to space.
