According to the designers, the synergy of angles, corners, and lines gives the facade three-dimensional depth and makes it one of the most interesting features of the house. The two cube-shaped layouts give a sense of balance equal to the architecture and create a dynamic exterior. The Red Agra stone prevents harsh sunlight from entering the house and keeps the interiors cool. Aluminum fringes bring in privacy and offset the vibrant foliage flanking the main doorway.

The entrance of the house is from the first floor. Here, a seating area, curios, and artwork embellish an inviting foyer. The soil of the gray textured walls is offset by the red stone and the vibrant orange color of the artwork. Coated in black metal, the circular door handle and vertical accents add character to space.

“As soon as someone enters the house, they are greeted by an open living and dining area divided by a free-living TV unit. William Gray Italian marble with golden veins adorns the floor.

The sofa is covered in shades of nude and is luxurious sitting on a blue chair.

There is a circular dining table in the center between the living room and an L-shaped open kitchen. The brown marble and nude interiors give continuity to the color palette.

In the second bedroom, an upholstered headboard and brass accents on the wall bring in subtle luxury. The bed back is made of stained ash-dye veneer. Place open cabinets on the side of the bed to display the bedsheet.

The brass inlay pops in the tiles and taps add glamor to space.

In contrast to the bedroom muted hues, pure black stone with golden and gray veins in the Ensuite bathroom oozes luxury. Reflective glass on the cupboard creates the illusion of a large space.
