The project demanded a certain language that would reflect the likings and living style of the family. For concept and visualization, the designers started by questioning, 'in what lies the essence of a home', and in doing so, developed a project that is unique and has a distinct design language. The client's ideologies and the designers' conception found common grounds over luxurious setting involving pertinent elements. Every space is translated towards this vision and functionality towards individuals. The residence for 4 people of two generations; seems to provide all the elements in right balance as to support the vision of providing luxury, which is balanced with efficient practices to channelize the pragmatic lifestyle.
