Even the best architects in the world at times emulate nature’s design in the form of biomimicry to create contemporary masterpieces while us more ‘ordinary’ folks turn to the many colors found in the natural world in search of decorating inspiration.
Designed by Khosla Associates and nestled in the posh neighborhood of Banjara Hills in India the gorgeous contemporary residence places as much emphasis on outdoor living spaces dining areas and social zones as it does on a refined interior.
Dubbed the original apartment was renovated way back in the 70’s and with time poorly planned additions and restorations turned it into a dark and boring space. Its new owners wanted a refreshing bright and inviting interior where the original charm of the loft was preserved enhanced and married with breezy modernity.
It is easy to see the many space-saving additions inside this cheerful and light-filled home. The standalone kitchen unit and workstation (sitting under the stairway) the small living area and the multitude of nifty cabinets give the lower-level living area a breezy ambiance.
It is a splash of purple that breathes life into the bedroom even as a bright wall mural and clever decorative pieces fill the nursery with cheer. Art Deco influences hold sway in the dining room that also doubles as a serene and rejuvenating hangout with framed photographs adding to the urbane setting.
Here the shelves are transformed into smart storage units and room dividers that combine form and function in an effortless manner. To highlight the presence of these custom shelves even further a pillar at the entrance of the house is completely covered in mirrors giving those who step in an instant view of the masterful creation.
The lower level of the loft holds the small living area along with the kitchen and dining room that are clad in black white brick and wood! A spiral staircase leads to the terrace and also elevates the industrial appeal of the flamboyant loft.
