Magnus Opus

If one would define this state-of-the-art project by Urban Zen, magnum opus is what comes to mind. Sprawling over 22,000 sq.ft., the architecture gives a series of overlapping volumes. Rising tall on a narrow plot, the horizontal extensions deliberately give the structure a sense of proportion.

Standing out from the crowd, the home speaks of real magnificence, real difference, and real courage, while the interiors reflect uber luxury with the choicest of materials and furnishings

A stilt floor takes you to the parking area, which is inspired by a racing track. The flooring has basalt stone and strips of travertine, and the linear profiles in the ceiling echo the design intent of the floor.

In the formal drawing room, a magnificent Aurora chandelier from Sans Souci, made of Czech glass, dangles from a 30-ft high ceiling and is fully controllable to reflect any colour. The interiors are a mélange of materials such as stone, brass, wood, corten steel, brass mesh and laminated glass, with furniture from Fendi and Roberto Cavali, the dining table by Roberto Cavali brass murals, granite cladding, Cavali light pendants, wall paneling finished with Corten steel and St. Lauren marble, seating from Fendi, speakers from B&O, a home theatre, and a distinctive staircase, complete the picture of high-end luxury.

The project combines both local and global elements sourced from sustainably harvested resources. There is abundant use of marble, teak wood, carefully curated fabric, beveled MDF blocks finished with veneer. In the puja room stands a profile of the gopuram at Tirumala, created from a single block of marble.
