Moksha- Mind, Perception and Personality space- An apartment of 2012 sq.ft. located in South Delhi needed to be transformed into a space with a new identity that could mix elegance and glamour with comfort, as requested by the clients: a couple and their six-month-old twins.

Passionate about art and design, the clients asked for the developing of a single level residence into a place of vibrancy and allure; for this reason, the aim of the works was to create a new organization of the spaces, defining the areas but not separating them.

The apartment is accessed on a small foyer, created as a buffer zone to the main living area.  An Installation that separates this area from the dining room was customized using a Sanjhi, a local craft from Mathura by its artist inspired by the miniature details combine with a solid wooden plank finished in Danish oil and suspended by an antique pitted copper panel.

As in this case, also other sculptures and art pieces by emerging and established artists are used within the apartment, highlighting the connection between the local and traditional culture with the contemporary taste.

The floor area of the lounge, the dining room and the living room, is paved with“Unito” a matt finished Italian limestone with a grainy and polished texture; alone existing pillar adjacent to the family lounge was included on the main wall by re-sculpturing it into a striking wall, creating a large opening between the lounge and the dining room.

Here, the sandstone wall, inspired by the ancient Japanese art of the origami, becomes the focal point of the dining and living area, creating with its multifaceted surfaces, geometric patterns with lights and shadows.

The dining table is realized with a combination of ‘horn’ overlay and reflects the sculptured copper suspended lights that recall the mind to natural and flower shapes.

The Focal Point of drawing room is a painting selected from clients collection, ‘Shiva’ Complementing the spiritual mindset of clients, Carefully composed with furniture pieces to complement the Aura of the room. A daybed in lime wash is a part of carefully selected artistic furniture.

These include the high headboard, a dresser decorated using the ancient technique of Silver Leaf and handles specially sourced from jewelers in Jaipur with the combination of Malakite, Pearls and Jade.
