‘ As we live and as we are, Sim­plic­ity— with a cap­i­tal “S” is dif­fi­cult to com­pre­hend nowa­days. We are no longer truly sim­ple. We no longer live in sim­ple terms or places. Life is a more com­plex strug­gle now. It is now valiant to be sim­ple: a coura­geous thing to even want to be sim­ple. It is a spir­i­tual thing to com­pre­hend what sim­plic­ity means.’

— Frank Lloyd Wright

The def­i­ni­tion of ‘ lux­ury’ has come a long way from the times of an­tiq­uity to moder­nity. Ad­di­tion­ally, the in­ter­pre­ta­tions of ‘ ur­ban con­tem­po­rary’ have been con­stantly evolv­ing as con­se­quen­tial phe­nom­ena of it­er­a­tions in en­gi­neer­ing, ma­te­ri­als, tech­nol­ogy, pro­cesses and need. The Dawar’s fam­ily res­i­dence is one that re­de­fines ur­ban con­tem­po­rary liv­ing in many ways.
