Modish Hue

Modish hue is an interesting amalgamation of functional and aspirational requirements of the client and the ideology of the design team to play with neutral and vibrant color palettes, within a modest budget. The apartment is located in a bustling neighborhood of food street, V.V Puram, Bangalore. The inside out façade and the strategically placed openings, allow the sunlight to veil the house for most part of the day and this feature has allowed the design team to experiment with darker and bold color hues, though maintaining the unity and harmony with neutral hues, leaving a mesmerizing taste of aesthetics.  The intrinsically carved curves on the main door delightfully welcome the guest.

Interior design C House, Bucharest

Customers wanted their future home to be a bit special, both in terms of design, but also of functionality and execution. Our concept proposal resulted from the idea of ​​transposing ancient art into a modern house (its architecture is modern minimalist style), and these elements are found in the decoration of the walls (classical cornices and brasses, columns and Greek capitals but which we painted in bright colors).
