House of Colours @ Chennai

Scope : Architecture + Interior Design 

Built up Area: 1220 sft

Interior Budget :15 lakhs

Year of completion : 2020

We were put on board to design when the building was already up with her first floor slab. The residence on the third floor was planned to accomodate a living ,dining, kitchen with utility ,a bedroom with an attached toilet and a guest bedroom with a common toilet – all with an existing and structural layout that had been planned for commercial tenantal spaces in the lower two floors.

The clients wanted a splurge of colours in their spaces them being doctors .This being Studio AJ’ s first project the amount of confidence and freedom they vested in and gave to us can never be put in words. The journey as a whole was a rich learning experience .
