Everything was tailor-made to fit their models and provide a space for self-discovery,” smiles Nimisha Sharma, Joint Studio Founder and Head of Design, and longtime friend of content creator Kusha Kapila and her partner Zorawar Ahluwalia, who was exploited to give their Gurugram home a facelift. Their memoir in Sharma was underlined by three adjectives: “Tropical”, “minimal” and “concrete-esque”.
The design has been developed in such a way that the walls can shine without any decor, where tranquility can fill the empty spaces. We kept a palette of gray and white,” suggests Nimisha. To prevent the shell from riffing on the Spartan, the designer covered the floor with micro-cement and used clean pottery and pampas grass for texture. Since the house also serves as a studio, everything had to be multifunctional. Near the front door, for example, an almost invisible storage unit with concealed storage pockets hides half-open parcels waiting to be retrieved. “With the nature of Kusha’s craft, there had to be a system warehouse through the entrance that would overlap form and function,” says Nimisha. The system, it seems, sets the stage for a variety of versatile contraptions that allow the home to assume multiple avatars throughout the day – the dining room, for example. As Nimisha presses a button to turn the dinner table into a bar, half the table rises on motorized stilts, transforming into a party counter for drinks and trinkets. The space below, meanwhile, is presented as a clever storage unit for cutlery. “It’s one of my favorite things, the bar,” smiles Kusha, “even though neither my husband nor I drink!” – Vaishnavi Nayel Talawadekar
