Distinctive and Modern Triangular Façade Features The Somany Residence in Delhi | Atrey & Associates


Located in the bustling neighbourhood of Engineer’s Enclave, New Delhi, The Somany Residence has become a centre of attraction because of its sharply angled façade. Whether seen in the day or lit up in the evening, this bold and modern building is hard to miss. Constructed by architecture & interior design firm Atrey & Associates, the house contains large fenestrations but allows the inhabitants to enjoy privacy. Monochrome colours in the interiors, a water body in the main lounge and custom-made furniture are the few attractive features of the house. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) is presenting here more info about the residence:

The client - a well-known fashion designer herself-wanted a simple but unique, eye-catching house, making the architect build a house with many openings and windows.


The north-facing 28’ x 58’ of this house has an ‘A’ frame in façade- enclosing upper ground and first floor. The home is undoubtedly an architectural marvel that fives powerful energy to the house in contemporary style.


The left and right-angled corners cover a water body connected with the main lounge and green space next to the powder room on the first floor.

Luxurious Choice of Colours

Both informal and formal spaces contain the ground floor. The open kitchen layout is integrated at the back.

Involvement of nature with cosy and sophisticated living creates amazing psychological effects that amalgamate the conception of exterior and interior, the private and the commonplace.

Bright and Tranquil First Floor

The firm floor comprises a private lounge and a guest bedroom in front of the master bedroom on the second floor.


The bright and peaceful guest room is an ideal space for getting a good night sleep. It provides solace from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Stylish, Statement-Worthy and Lavish Second Floor

The front of the floor has a beautifully designed master bedroom.


It also has a guest room on the rear side. Bold and striking this room truly defines the individuality of the client.


The woodwork significantly inspires the impressive skylight. At the same time, the use of backlit stone adds drama and charm to the room.
