Kapil Aggarwal Creates A Colourful and Playful Abode

This house dates back to 45 years and is for one big family. The architect wanted to revamp his apartment within very short period. So from dismantling things to designing and getting it executed on site it took only 35 days to complete the interiors.

Layout and Zoning

Basically the architects have tried to keep together two worlds, the one of the old and the one of the new, in a balance. to guarantee the identity of both of them.

Light and shadow are kept together in their ambiguity and plurality, without sacrificing the reasons of one at the expense of the other.

The very first thing that the user experiences is the entry lobby area and then moves through the bedroom to family lounge where sits the dining table and the drawing area. The Kitchen area remains as it is where it used to be. There's ambiguity of natural light into space which penetrates through green area which acts as a breathing space for the residence.

Material Palette

Material palette has been wisely chosen with the use of pastel colours and oak veneer.

Entrance Lobby

The first expression that strikes the user is the turquoise colour wall upon which sets the painting and a contrasting sofa in same colour. On the right side there's a red coloured sofa adding another colour to the dimension.

Keeping the colour palette very subtle and minimal for the bedroom and encompassing it with paintings sets a perfect balance between the function and aesthetics. Emphasis has been given on each and every detail even the shutters of almirah has been digitally printed on canvas adding an element of art to the room.

Natural green has been introduced in different areas increasing the air quality of space.

Dining Area & Family Lounge

The complete journey is like a story in this house and with each step you gain a new perspective. The  two walls of family lounge has been painted with two very contrasting colours, deep blue and baby pink. So again it's very interesting to see things moulding with each other in a harmonic way. The Dining table is custom designed with a pattern of black and white stone on its top contrasting the baby pink wall. Along the blue wall a yellow coloured sofa is being placed just next to it giving it a bold yet soothing effect
