Residence 95- Residential Interior | JAM Storey | New Delhi
Like every other project, Residence 95 has a soft spot in our heart. From demolishing the existing building to selecting the right decor…our journey began from the scratch!
Design meets the client’s need! In a plot area of 1500 sqft, stilt + 4 storeys were built, including the duplex on the upper floors along with a solar panel planned on the terrace, as per the requirement. With a clear approach from the start, the idea of designing the house was to stick to a modern-day concept. Following a simple, contemporary and artistic approach, the design possesses charm, a neutral colour palette, playful interiors and inviting warmth.
First impressions are an important part of human interactions. Entrance translates the environment as well as allowing the visitors to peek in some positive vibes. The eye focuses on the magical play of light and shadow on the double-height grey textured wall as you enter the house, just adjacent to a beautiful brass partition segregating the dining and staircase. “The Sun does not realise how wonderful it is until after a room is made”- by Louis Khan.
Internal stairs connected between the two floors enables visual transparency to the members and encourages family interaction. The skylight above the staircase brings light into the double-height space effortlessly. Planning is done in such a manner so that every bedroom has access to natural light including the study. The Art of Composition is a simple approach for creating masterful designs! The customized circular artwork placed on the double-height wall intends to reflect a poetic and picturesque feel in that area. The living room in this home is nestled among a few sweeping windows, providing lots of natural illumination during the day. At night, dining room pendant lights have plenty to shine on.
The colour palette used throughout is calming with muted shades of blush pink, blue-yellow and grey on walls, furniture and upholstery. One of the best things about pastels is that together they work in harmony. Combining these colours with the rich, smooth and rough textures of Italian grey marble, the retro-chic appeal of lightly coloured white oak wood, balances with the elegant and exclusive furniture. The standalone customized wallpaper behind the sofa, itself acts as an art piece in the living area. All the bedrooms have different interior concepts, yet in sync with an overall subtle theme of the house. White Statuario, a high-end luxury marble, used in the master bedroom, is the epitome of style and elegance and has been utilised as a symbol of sophistication and status in interior design for centuries.
The bedrooms designed for young adults are stylish and youthful. Oak battens in different spaces have been used in the form of playful patterns. Art and detailing in the daughter’s bedroom, add an artistic and soulful touch to that space. Simple but stunning, Grey Terrazzo tiles on the walls and floor of her washroom, creates continuity and are the new hottest tile trend. Black and white patterned tiles used as flooring in the study is cool and crisp. Rough textured stone on walls and concrete ceiling speaks about themselves creating an overall timeless ambience in Son’s bedroom. Highlighter tiles in fresh new designs are eye-pleasing in his washroom. Bold and beautiful artworks enlighten every corner of the house, may it be a painting hung on the bed back wall or a customized artwork shutter for the Amirah.
The elevation has been designed on the principle of“Form follows function”. Utilizing the maximum spaces of the balconies yet adding elements to balance and break the linearity of the façade. The building shares a minimal mood board comprising of – white andbeige laminam, black powder- coated mild steel and external wood. The horizontal wooden louvres and tapered window act as a photo frame to the building. A double-height balcony with a vertical garden goes up to the terrace.Amidst thesevertical louvres, the central void grabs a strong focus from the outside, seeking attention and allowing transparency to the user from the balcony, acting as both functional and aesthetical element to the facade. The circle defines wholeness and perfection, conveys the feeling of a dominant element in the external elevation. Adding a Champa tree is like a cherry on the top and gives life to space allowing the family members to relax and relish the experience.
“We believe that stories have the power to make a change, we build storeys that become amazing stories.”
