1943 Constructed structure - Renovating in 2012

By Minakshi Jaiswal

Renovating this building which was originally constructed in 1943 was a real challenge, as it did not have a framing skeleton and stood on brick column and 13” load bearing walls. We completed it without breaking its external wall. The complete house is based on the original taste of its Oriental looks, dark wood and a lot of white. It is imbued with a lot of natural light and air. It was planned in a manner to provide very comfortable and large spaces to every user in it. The areas where natural light did not reach is provided with skylight as an interesting feature. Watch this space for the completion photos!
