What kind of projects in­ter­est you?

We love work­ing on res­i­den­tial and hos­pi­tal­ity projects. We en­joy work­ing with peo­ple who have an ex­per­i­men­tal streak. They give you free­dom to de­sign and play with var­ied ma­te­ri­als, de­sign styles and colours. Most celebri­ties have an eclec­tic sense of style and its fun to work on their homes.

Celebrity homes de­signed by you?

We have worked on the homes of Kriti Sanon, Ab­hi­jit Sawant, Kushal Tan­don and Mon­ica Bedi.

What de­tails do you take care of while de­sign­ing celeb spa­ces?

The most im­por­tant thing is to get to know the client, un­der­stand­ing their life­style, likes and dis­likes, and even­tu­ally cre­at­ing a space which is in­te­gral to their lives.

What are the usual re­quire­ments of celebri­ties for their homes?

Most of the celebri­ties en­ter­tain a lot and hence their liv­ing area be­comes of prime im­por­tance, since that is where they like to spend time with their friends and fam­ily. Hence they like it to be com­fort­able and opu­lent. An­other area of prime im­por­tance and in­sis­tence is the way their dress­ing room and clos­ets are de­signed. They like to take good care of their clothes and be­long­ings in a proper man­ner.

If you get an op­por­tu­nity to de­sign Bachchan’s or Shahrukh’s house, what as­pects would you keep in mind?

A celebrity is also a nor­mal hu­man be­ing within his/her home. He wants com­forts first. Hence, the pri­or­i­ties would be the same while de­sign­ing the home of the Bachchan’s or Shahrukh’s home.
