bold décor elements, all of which, although stand ing out, still manages to piece the entire project together. A selection of artworks from Sanjyt Syngh: Spaces + Objects, statement lighting pieces from Masiero are an example of the designer’s creativity. Extending his creativity beyond artworks and décor, Syngh brought in a selection of eccentric furniture pieces from Scarlet Splendour, Qeeboo and Nama Home. While there are a lot of rooms, the home is conceived as a single volumetric form where each and every space is connected to the outdoors, be it the lawn, the pool, or the massive balconies. Another fun aspect of the home is the designer’s play of colour; bold vibrant hues to compliment the detailing. Stylish and aesthetic, the home displays a younger personality culminating varied design languages with modern glamour, a perfect tribute to LA! Studio Lotus A privately-owned property in Lutyens’ Bungalow Zone, this 13,000 sq. ft. neoclassical residence was designed by Studio Lotus. The brief was simple, the owners wanted to adapt the original property into a private residence keeping the design alterations to a minimum. The exteriors of the home features a wide driveway that culminated into a restored entry porch, while the interior layout includes private and living areas spread across two levels. On the ground floor, public zones such as a meeting area and a formal lounge occupy either side of the foyer, ensuring privacy for other areas. The upper floor is accessed by a staircase and a lift placed at the far end of the east-west corridor. It is designed as a barefoot space—a sanctuary for the family. The entire home is a culmination of bright airy spaces,with light emitting from skylights in the corridors and wide doors and windows elsewhere. While the design vocabulary of the house is muted and pared-down, it features a rich tapestry of paintings, sculptures, and art installations representing the clients’ artistic sensibilities and affinity for art and understated luxury. The foyer has the richest diversity of art collected by the owners and holding value for them in different points of life: a bespoke mirror by Filipino artist Vito Selma, a bench by Rooshad Shroff, a woodcut installation by renowned artist Kumaresan Selvaraj, and artwork by Gunjan Kumar, both sourced from Exhibit 320. A similar design approach continues through to the handling of the bespoke furniture, furnishings and millwork by Mangrove Collective. The verandas feature installations by Jop Kunneke and the Man & Bicycle, a collaboration with Pomegranate Design for the charity Khushii. A pair of Chamba Rumal paintings hang in the master bedroom on the upper floor. 38|L U X E B O O K|N O V E MB E R 2 0 2 2 Studio Lotus N O V E MB E R 2 0 2 2 |L U X E B O O K| 39 Studio Lotus
