To design Interiors for a very high profile client, with a fine sense of design. A humungous 25000 SQ. FT. Spread over 5 floors. A complex requirement with 4 living rooms, 2 dining area, a political office, a business office, multiple outdoor entertaining areas, 20 toilets 10 car parks, swimming pool, spa, massage room & all other general requirements. The services needed a lot of thought & coordination. There was a no limit budget, which posed a different set of problems. For the clients this was their third house & were in a been there done that mode. For the flooring we went for steel grey granite with lapato finish rather than Italian marble/ onyx. It gives a soothing & homely feel to the entire house. It provides a proper scale to the very huge spaces. It acts as a contrast for all the furniture & furnishings. The overall interior language is minimal, modern & rich at the same time not being ostentatious. The DIWANE AAM & THE FORMAL DINING AREA interiors are done with royal flair. The client’s high taste of living & attention to detailing was very evident in all decisions. At the main entrance the visitor is greeted with a copper paneled gate & exposed brick wall which leads to a colonnade to the main entrance door. The visitor while passing through the colonnade with trellis can view the pool & pavilion to his left, party lawn to his right. The interiors are spread over five levels, the lower ground houses the parking & office area, the ground floor houses the DIWAN E AAM a double height space with a suspended conference room. This space has been provided with huge 17 feet high decorative jail doors on the west, it adds to the royal effect. The remaining three floors form the residence. The residential interiors have been designed keeping in mind the client’s taste of high living. Profuse use of greenery through varied courts at different levels adds to the soothing effect of the interiors. The sensored openable louvres help to reduce heat during the summers, keeping the temperature in control. A 80TON central air conditioning system is used. Heat pump for the water heating is installed, the diversity of which is used for the air conditioning of the third floor.
