While Vastu played an important role in zoning, planning, and redefining the entire house, the grandparents’ master bedroom fell in the southwest direction over the ground floor along with formal living, kitchen, and dining. Along with an informal sitting area, the first floor resides in the bedroom of son, daughter, and guests. The gym, a home theater to serve parties, falls under the second floor. Hence each floor holds different functions and meaning over the section.

Walls, floor and bed painted in shades of grey define a union. Being the major size room of the house, zoning was parted in three functions (bathroom with dresser, bed area, study area).

Bringing the fresh and elegant feel through texture paint and golden accents. Tropical wallpaper accompanying green texture breaks the monotony of the grey wall and foregrounds the corner. A Golden framed mirror over the adjacent wall compliments and brightens the rooms with golden strips flowing along the bed.


Bright yet contemporary feel with the use of walnut veneer paneling. Voids over bed, tv section and ceiling provides warm ambiance with the help of indirect light.


Client being a jewelry manufacturer required the office with two separate entries divided in two levels for the staff members.


A multifunctional space which holds space for a family to get together along the gym and entertain people through home theater. A space of all is the design vision with a blend of dim and bright lighting serving various different purposes.
