The spacious and luxurious apartment in Chennai has been created using timeless & global style. The home is essentially a complete floor rolled into one, which means that the space is huge at disposal. The design team segregated this space into two wings.


The right wing is the main entrance of the home which has informal living space, dining followed by Mandir, two bedrooms, kitchen and pent area, all without very distinct demarcations to maintain fluidity. Also in this central zone is an open play area.

The left-wing of the home has a playroom, passage, and living area, and a lavish daughters’ room, classy master suite with dressing and pent area.

Entrance and Living area

First is the lift lobby area, which is exclusively designed with panache. Mosaic cladding on the panel with detailed marble work is making it look classy and bright. Chandelier, mirror on the wall, light tone flooring completely neutralizes the area, highlighting the mosaic.

The lobby leads to the main entrance, followed by the foyer. The entry foyer connects to a small passage, which then leads to another one placed perpendicularly, branching out into the different private spaces as it runs through the apartment.
