Project description: A phenomenon in Indian Homes is multi-generation homes, divided by choice but united by the love of family. Designing one such large home in the heart of the city meant breaking down individual choices and amalgamating them cohesively. Bringing in contemporary aesthetics to the customs and traits of an Indian household. Assimilating the varying age groups and their requirements we have tried to induce nostalgia for the rich culture where appropriate and where deemed necessary based we have created a contradictory quirky space. A lavish 4679 sq. ft. of residence that reverberates the Indian phenomenon of a multi-generational family home. Design intervention was needed to create a balance between the private and shared spaces. Originally an 8-bedroom apartment; it was modified to make space even more luxurious to accommodate 3 nos. Ensuite bedrooms. A sleeping area, a walk-in wardrobe, and a bathroom. The other two bedrooms were planned for the septuagenarian mother and the guest bedroom. Striking a balance between shared and private spaces, the design imbibes customs and traits of a modern Indian home that influence the essential form, function, and aesthetics. Inducing nostalgia for their rich culture into their modern abode. The spatial planning was done to segregate the younger generation on one side, the idea of these two bedrooms circulated around their passions of travel, gaming, and other youthful elements. The other side, a slight contrast, has a mature artistic approach; colour palettes that assimilate the age-appropriate value.
