Open-plan approach for Gurugram apartment
Gurugram-based Chalk Studio has designed The Golf Home, which is a luxury apartment project spanning 4100 sq. ft. It comprises bespoke details, statement furniture pieces, and sophisticated minimalism. The open-plan area is created by eliminating walls to bring in spaciousness in a plush and functional design while following a neutral color palette of whites, greys, and backlit wooden accents. The design is inspired by a modern minimalist décor style while maintaining understated luxury.
Simple vertical lines define the living area with vertical wooden rafters that separate it from the dining area and house the furniture and a showcase wall with a TV and a fireplace. Horizontal divisions in the millwork create niches for placing artifacts and other accessories, and the carpet breaks the monotony of grey. A bar in the dining area has similar shelving as the living room area, and screens on either side of the false wall conceal this space from visitors. A clean marble-top dining table and round chairs anchor the space.
Shelves in the kitchen are designed to openly display daily-use items, and open shelves above the sink allow the occupant to dry dishes and conceal the chimney to maintain the overhead cabinets’ veneer appearance. The firm turned a former bedroom into a lounge allowing the family to relax and enjoys a neutral color scheme with teakwood battens.
The master bedroom has a grey color palette with chevron flooring with beige and blue accents, and a TV unit adds additional space for extra storage. The minimalistic parents’ bedroom uses veneer and fabric for the bed’s back wall and a marble television unit. The children’s bedroom is functional, with a ‘hut’ symbol on the bed back and the study table. Drawers under the sofa and extra shelves are added for storage, and quirky pop-up art contrasts starkly with the primitive ‘hut’ look.
