A couple with two small children wanted to repair and upgrade their apartment, which was beginning to show its age. All the windows were replaced with double glazing. The drawing room was earlier separated from its narrow balcony by a small door and glazing that was mostly sealed. In its place, folding doors were installed that allowed the whole wall to be opened up. Access from the drawing room to the dining room was earlier via the lobby. The separating wall was broken and a large sliding door was installed. The internal entrance lobby used to be dark, but a window to the dining room was installed to bring in more light from there. Bathrooms were gutted and redone.
Located in New Delhi, India. The floor area is 161 sqm (1,733 sqft). The project was completed in Mar 2014.
The drawing room connects well to the greenery outside through the folding doors.
The drawing room bookshelves and TV cabinet were also designed by Place Design.
The colour combination of the wallpaper, fabrics and wood creates a cheerful atmosphere in the drawing room.
Colourful photographs add a vibrant note to the drawing room.

The master bedroom.
The master bedroom is mostly white with a black highlight wall.
The master bathroom is minimal in design. The long, narrow ledge obviates the need for a counter. This makes the bathroom feel much bigger.

The guest bathroom is large and has provision for a washing machine. Cabinets accommodate buckets, washing powder and the like.
