  • Location Surat, India,
  • Type Apartment,
  • This was a home to be created for a purveyor of furniture sourced from the international market. Italy was a favorite stopping ground, and the European aesthetics, he found, resonated greatly with him. The client asked us to create an environment that could serve as a showcase for the different brands he was associated with in a setting with distinct western sensibilities.

    While the fundamental objective was to present a curated mix of International brands, we wanted something more out of the space. Treating it like mere display with aesthetic, if soulless, juxtapositions was out of the question. Our aim was to create a narrative that would be characterful and memorable.
