Combining the elements of luxury with simple yet intricate designs

Combining the elements of luxury with simple yet intricate designs, the 10,000 sq.ft bungalow is detail-oriented and underscores the values of comfort and opulence. The rich interiors are decorated with ornamental wall panels coated with gold and silver leafing elaborate woodwork crafted by local artisans. Emblems symbolizing Morrocan royalty demarcate the spaces between public, semi-public, and private. Hand-painted ceilings and metal cut works mimic Moroccan motifs. Nine feet tall windows allow abundant natural light and open out to the landscaped greens outside.

The thing about designing a residence of this magnitude and luxurious spaces is that every bit has to be thought about and planned in multiple layers. We have not only customized the woodwork, glasswork, stone work, and the mirror work, but we have also custom designed the towels, bedroom linen, and curtains and even selected the crockery to match the royally done up dining space

A massive double-height dining room showcases a glimmering chandelier with a hand-painted mural in the background. The restrooms are made resplendent with marble mouldings and are fitted with amenities that include a jacuzzi and a steam room. Each room has its own theme, colours and motifs. Rich gold, champagne, silver, deep reds and blues are toned down by pastel pinks. Handwoven curtains and hand-picked carpets enhance the traditional look and feel of the spaces within.
