Materiality performed a great role in setting the natural-meets-contemporary aesthetic direction. The entire project was customized according to the client’s brief, including remodelling and furniture design. The material finishes and the fixtures are handpicked for the client. A similar design language throughout the house, yet a unique take in all the spaces defines itself as an epitome of beauty. Ended up with this project in Nov. 2021, with special Thanks to all the workers, craft’s man and contractors for the tremendous work and energy shown up throughout the timeline. – Choral by The Designer.
