Complex Residence in India with a Jaw-Dropping Modern Design

Complex Residence in India with a Jaw-Dropping Modern Design

Rajiv Saini & Associates redesigned an old family home located in Hyderabad, India. Although they initially meant to keep most of the original elements intact, the residence currently has a very modern feel, thus a completely new character. Here are just some of the transformations mentioned by the project developers: “Additional rooms got cantilevered over existing structure ( for example the copper clad gym overlooking the front garden is a newly added cantilevered steel structure,as are the guest rooms and the steel and glass study attached to the master suite ) , redundant spaces got axed / demolished, new spaces were created wherever possible ( the new dining room was created by enclosing a part of the rear garden ) ,the grand spiral marble staircase fell a victim to the reorganizing,replaced instead by a sleek metal and stone one, in a different part of the house.  The 10′ diameter hole left in the sloping slab as a result of this got transformed into a skylight, and the roof got sheathed in a layer of black slate!”  There are plenty of photos below showcasing the diversity of this home, so we invite you to have a look and get inspired!

    Great design but the outdoor shots don’t do justice to your hard work, looks quite ordinary, the use of daylight of right time in such properties make it look wow & should have been shot at proper timing of the day, same happens in room interior shots.
