While we have been involved in the design of multi-storied housing complexes and residences for diplomats as part of our diplomatic projects, we have also undertaken private residences for select individuals. These include homes in posh areas of New Delhi such as Greater Kailash-1, Shantiniketan and Masjid Moth. The underlying philosophy while designing is to maximize the views from living/ bedrooms and provide ample natural light for all spaces. While provision of natural ventilation is of course kept, and terraces & sit-outs are planned for most rooms, the spaces are preferred to be centrally air-conditioned. Keeping up with the ever-evolving trends, as well the individual’s taste, finishes and materials are proposed.
