The client is a family of 6. This apartment has been their dream home. It was a builder-furnished apartment with party flooring, etc. “The layout was very small. It was a 4 bedroom which we converted into a 3 bedroom because of the client’s lifestyle. In one pocket, we made a den attached to their main living room,” says Shibani. The house was divided into two spaces because they are a young couple living with their elderly parents. 

Client’s Brief

The brief of the clients was that they wanted something fun but not overwhelming.

_Resi-India-Bulls-by-Naksh-22“One of them is an artist. Hence, we helped her make paintings that have been put all over the apartment, all her work up for showcase. We worked on the colours with her and we coordinated the setup which worked out for the better for both of us. The client insisted on automation in most of the places," Shibani added.

Spatial Layout

From the main living, we go to the kitchen and the parents' room which has the utility area. On the other side, you have the kids' room, powder bathroom and the master bedroom which has a walk-in as well as their bathroom.

They can entertain 2 different sets of people because the den has been worked out in such a way that it can be connected to the living room, or it can be totally closed with the glass partition door. This planning really worked for them. They also needed a small bar so it could fit in the den. 


Maximized the Home Space

The kitchen is modular and has been made to order. Given that it was not a very large space, the design team tried to accommodate everything possible. The bathrooms were broken to incorporate some more space in the bedrooms. 

“In the master bedroom, we created a personal walk-in, which was quite a challenge but it worked out fine.

Double Bed, Play Area and Open Space in Kids Room

The client has two kids- a girl (10) and a boy (6). For the kids’ room, one of the main requirements was a bit of a challenge because they wanted a lot of open space plus they wanted a bunk bed/ play area, a bed and they wanted a double bed. 

“The corner-most part of the room with a low platform, we put a low platform bed so that the area around the bed also becomes the platform where they can work and play. There is a nice climbing bunkbed on top which works out well for them because they can play and the client can go up and play too,” she shares.

_Resi-India-Bulls-by-Naksh-22Tables have also been incorporated into the room. The kids are young, hence, the colour tones were more on the lines of making it child-friendly but not too much so that after a few years, they don’t need to make a great transition. They can just have a few, quick changes in curtains and fabrics and get the required feel.

In the bathroom, they only wanted a tub. Part of the bathroom is created in such a way that they can use it as a tub because it is a tile base elevation but at the same time, it’s not just a tub either.
