The Passage While the overall theme of the house is contemporary, we have further aestheticized it through the contrasting interplay of minimalism and maximalism. The pleasing medley of dramatic accents, vintage elements & artisanal pieces, making it all seem like they have come together organically over the years.

An eclectic corner in the terrace has achieved aesthetic dichotomy by using a minimal neutral palette and dramatic styling of oversized mirrors, sculptures, and art. Sumptuous finishes like that of muted and antiqued brass add accent to doors, sculptures, furniture, and chandeliers.


The living room is adorned by a bar, Packed with custom touches and artisanal craftsmanship, the house boasts four defined spaces and the bar is one of them.

This home is a blend of classic and contemporary with antiques and character-filled elements such as switchboards, artifacts. The living room has a beautiful bay window overlooking the Golf course and Aravali range. While each of these areas has its own soul and spirit — we have used sliding doors to demarcate as well as to unify the spaces.
