“This home is filled with natural light and infuses traditional elements in a modern yet minimalistic set-up,” says Sunita Yogesh. “We imbued the space with the wabi-sabi concept [finding beauty in imperfection] by celebrating a subtle material palette – embracing slow living and imperfections.”
The main door opens into the living room with an open-plan layout, where concrete-finish vitrified-tile flooring sets the mood for the entire home.
Designing a living area with a narrow profile was challenging. Yogesh tackled this by using timber beams on the ceiling, giving depth to the space.
