The recent house designed by Punam Karla of I’m, The Centre for Applied Arts reflects the personality of the person well in style, class, and personal statement. Known for her work, she expressed the luxury in its truest form, in a softer, rhythmic design expression, and a choice of unique textures and materials, with a delicately balanced visual consistency in this house.

The color palette used in the house brings the warmth of earthy neutral colors enhanced by powerful, regal colors like blue and red. The bold detailing in rich textures and titanium coated steel metallic details with a golden or brass finishing, along with the nifty statement pieces gives the home a strong character and integrity.

The living room houses a plush curvilinear velvet sofa set in shades of beige and taupe, well contrasted with statement neo-modern chairs in an earthy red with subtle metallic detailing. Cushions in tones of copper and antique gold add a touch of glamour to the room.

Clean, solid, geometric tables in high gloss PU finishing and minimal metallic details, further complemented with a modern Victorian-inspired crystal chandelier and a deconstructed geometric print earth toned carpet, enhance the visual fluidity of the supple forms and textures.

The elegant suede wall paneling with rectilinear metal inlays, paired with the hearty organic luxuriantly patterned wallpaper and the reinterpreted exquisite golden screen inspired by traditional Indian jaalis, add a touch of extravagance, creating a cozy, affluent and powerful space.

The dining area is conceptualized as an orderly, free voluminous space with the table and the statement lighting as its focal highlights. The table is an artful piece with a clean-cut, semi-precious rose quartz top supported by modern, visually solid, curvilinear legs with neat metallic details.

It is well paired with plush white chairs having contrasting legs and a bold brass lion head feature, giving the room a minimally curated idiosyncratic vibe. The luxurious linear crystal chandelier and the ritzy side table, along with the modern wallpaper complementing the rich marble texture, enhance the gracefully indulgent ambiance.

The beige velvet upholstered bed, with a rich blue suede headboard with a mix of linear metallic and tufted detailing, is complemented by the linear wooden cupboard and the minimal yet ornate bedside table detailing. The bed is an understated sculptural play of silhouettes with planar size and tonal variations and curvilinear edges, giving the room a soft and relaxed finish. The modern grey chaise with the organic wooden and wallpaper texture brings a raw, lavish and refined calmness to the master bedroom.

Architect Parag V Singal of Parag Singhal Architects recently designed the offices for Mitsubishi. The offices included a floor plan of 22,300 ft. The goal was to create an office space that not only followed the usual standards of 'maximizing usable square footage' but also avoided any monotony in the spaces. The open floor plan facilitates the workstation area to have maximum occupancy without compromising on the privacy and personal space that each employee needs. In the majority of areas that are habitable, natural light is present, so there's no need for people to use artificial light during the day. Natural light has some energy savings and benefits. The central core houses all the workstations. Three different workstation patterns were adopted to stray away from the run-of-the-mill approach and bring vibrancy into the space. The cabins take the shorter periphery, thereby leaving the larger volume for workstations and other interactive zones. A sizeable amount of break-out areas have been carved out of the chunk of the floor plate. This not only breaks the monotony of the plan but also acts as a catalyst for promoting healthy interaction between the employees. Those particular areas have been accentuated by the use of offbeat colors. The most notably used color is Pantone color of the year. They are offbeat but still compliment one another and fit well in the overall picture given that they are all complimentary. The entire office space is adorned with handcrafted furniture of the highest quality and energy-efficient lighting fixtures that create a welcoming atmosphere. The office is designed to be both accessible and comfortable to the occupants while also impressing your visitors!
