A luxurious 7600 sq. ft. Delhi home designed by Design Cosmos packs a plush character into a low-maintenance home…

The home sits on a corner plot with three sides open, two of which open into vistas of the neighbourhood parks. Thus, the spatial plan maximizes window openings in every area and attached balconies urge the user to step out and be closer to nature.

With both architecture and interiors executed by Design Cosmos; the entire house has state-of-the-art automation, which makes operations hands-free. In terms of zoning, the parent’s room, guest bedroom and formal areas occupy the lowermost floor; whilst, the upper floor has the master bedroom and both kids’ bedrooms in addition to a small lounge to entertain close friends. Other areas include a multi-purpose room and lounge-like seating spilling over to and overlooking the terrace for larger get-togethers. A water body here adds freshness and makes a seamless visual transition to the parks abutting the plot.

Like most homes, the entry is through a lobby at the stilt floor level, which is used primarily for parking. A grand double-height living space bathed in natural light from tall slit windows overlooking a park greets one, directing upwards. This double-height space acts as the core of this house and becomes the lifeline of the residence due to its central location as well as function.

Since the clients wanted to avoid any overly loud appearances and retain simplicity; design interventions are incorporated very subtly ensuring visual comfort as the eye transitions from a predominantly neutral palette to pops of colour – in the living area (blue), bedroom (rich purple), bathroom (golden yellow) … Use of striated marble adds a distinct narrative via the dining table top and the marble-enveloped bathrooms. A touch of whimsy in the panelling, mirror inserts that hint at a play of reflections…and other understated elements add an innate richness to the decor negating the overt use of anything opulent or deliberately add-on.

Filtered into the ambience is a play of planes and uninterrupted wraps, as horizontal and vertical lines are juxtaposed to cull out the ambience; stone and mirror are wrapped to veneer and PoP, Italian marble seems to seamlessly envelope the flooring and the stairway across the three levels; vertical wood fins along the double-height opening wraps into a pergola at terrace level, whilst an MS pergola wraps with the front and side elevations seamlessly transitioning into wood and stone.

Thoughtful design and attention-to-detail contribute to a beautiful home that is warm and welcoming, yet uncompromising on prime aesthetics that befit an abode of this stature.
