Located in Kolkata, this home is a safe and pleasant sanctuary for elderly couples. The clients had very basic requirements for what they wanted in their house because it was the first time they hired interior designers and it was going to be their last house where they would ever live. 

Automated, Easy to handle and low-maintenance elements

Keeping in mind the age of the senior couples, the firm ensured to use of easily manageable things that require less maintenance. 

The team also made the space automated so they do not have to exert themselves for small things, and made sure everything is reachable for them. 

Peppered with warm colours

The firm also added some pops of colour here and there based on the people who will be staying in that room and used brass to enhance the charm of the room.

No sharp edges and proper lighting

To minimise the risk of injuries while walking around, the team ensured to avoid sharp edges in the space and the furniture. Further, they provided them with proper lighting to make the space look spacious.

The use of natural or pastel colours also makes the space look brighter, thereby creating a warm, cosy look. These details improved the design's functionality and aesthetic appeal of the project.
