The House in the Round
Best Implemented Apartment / Private House Interior Design Project
About the project
The design was done following the circular geometry creating subtle transitions from sectors to curved spaces. Two existing floors were transformed into a living room with a bar and two bedrooms on the upper floor and a dining area with a den on the lower floor. A verandah was introduced on the upper floor overlooking the Himalayas.
The ceiling design gave prevalence to the radial geometry where the beams were used as a design element that accentuated the radiality of the space. The central column too, is celebrated and forms the focus of the living area.
Live edge furniture was fabricated for a rustic look and feel. An elegance of minimal design features offsetted by the rustic loose tables was achieved by using muted colors and highlights. Stone cladding with light washes was used to add warmth to the space while darker wood finishes were employed for a cozy feel.
