The idea of designing for a celebrity couple was pretty challenging especially because both of them are attached to creative fields. Their creative sensibilities were sharp. I learnt lessons in humility from Kunjettan and Shobha aunty. Kunjettan was the energy behind the project. He was very clear about what he wanted and he was also ready to go to any depths to achieve the finish he wanted. Market research was something we delved into in quite detail.
Concept is of a typical English villa.
- Steeply sloped gable roofs and shingled walls. We have used stone texture tiles in bits on the exterior to give a rustic feel to the elevation.
- Internal skylight provided above the stairway throws light into the dining room from where it penetrates into the rooms around.
- Small glass paintings combined with wood in the stair handrails,doors and windows to add colour to the interiors.
- Ceiling of living and dining has wooden beams running across to give a cozy feel.
- Warm light features used in the Drawing room.
