    The ‘Nest’ aims to subtly transmit family values and beliefs to future generations. This project is exclusively designed, and customized for client Mr. Chirag Patel and his family (4 people in all). The house is built in Bodeli taluka, and it’s called mini Mumbai because of many businesses. The client preferred to live in town away from the hustle and bustle of the city life as the place offered a strong sense of community with peaceful environment.

The grooved paneling takes precedence while the occasional splash of blue is very fresh. The private spaces tell a personal story of character, persona and tastes. ~ Nishal Sevak
