Hello, I am a fourth-year interior design student from India. I believe in powerful, experiential and impactful spaces. I have always envisioned spaces in my mind. The decision to pursue interior designing had come instinctively and naturally to me. And I have never looked back. For me, interior design is a perfect blend of functionality and experience, with no compromise on either end. I believe in hard and smart work and thinking out-of-the-box.

MARCS - Retail Design Studio

| City Center Shopping Mall , Queensland, Australia


Year 3 (12 weeks)

Given a corner site in a shopping mall in Australia with a lengthy shop-front, an idea to make the shop-front visually engaging, compelling people to enter was attempted. The shopfront has addition of photo-dichroic glass finishes which appears to change colour when viewed from different angles making the walk visually dynamic. The angular language of the existing site is continued spatially and experientially. The tilted coated acrylic creates an open, dynamic experience in the interior space with colourful projections on the floor and ceiling.The wide array of colourful clothes of MARCS is given a white backdrop to grab attention. A pivoting element in the space enables different floor display layouts and visual change in the space. Softwares used -

Wall Fixtures

The system is such that two hanging fixtures cannot be fit side by side, hence eliminating a grid form. Modules of 600 mm each are wallhung and support three types of fixtures- front hanging, side-hanging and shelves at many heights. Three such metal modules form six visual bays for display (to the right) thus reducing material.

Client - Mr. Malhar Dhruv The family comprises of his mother, his wife and their 5 yr old son. In the four-storey frame structure as a site in the corner of the bustling Vijay Char Rasta in Ahmedabad, taking into consideration the climate of Ahmedabad where the built formâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east, south , west facades are heated up; the Metro coming up on the main facade and the other sides flanked by bungalows, an idea is taken to treat the facade as

a skin taken slightly away from the built form to provide the interior spaces with privacy, insulation and ventilation and exciting, dramatic lightshadow conditions and the main

functions are surrounded by it. Softwares used - Autocad 2d Autocad 3d Adobe Photoshop

The existing metal grid around the building is re-used to create the facade. The living functions have a more open facade condition of tilted planks on both the sides bringing in light in interesting visual fragments and good cross-ventilation. The CNCed corten steel panels in a design of pixels bring in light creating a jaali-like feel in some private spaces. 7.

firm

Year 3 (12 weeks)

Two residential bungalows in the same plot owned by two brothers were developed by the firm with a similar architectural language. The challenge was to design the homes separately as per the two familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; choices maintaining similarities yet differing the interior spaces and elements. I was added to the project in mid-design development stage of the first bungalow. After understanding the language developed, my contribution was bedroom designs, lounge flooring and ceiling pattern development, chests design, door design, dresser and wardrobe design, etc. Renders of elements for client discussions and corresponding detail drawings were produced by me. Softwares used - AutoCAD 2d | AutoCAD 3d Sketchup + V-Ray Photoshop Microsoft Excel

The main door is conceptualised as a huge 360 degree central pivot door with a contemporised version of a traditional small Indian door opening in. The entire door open would provide a beautiful view into the garden outside. The door from the outside was conceptualised to look like an art piece with corten piece or wood. These are certain explorations done.

CEPT University Press office

CEPT University Press office- a balance between connections and privacy. The design endeavours to provide a sense of open-ness and oneness while maintaining privacy. The volumetric experience of the site and the inside-outside connection is enhanced to create a good work environment. The idea of incorporating levels in the space eliminates need of opaque barriers to create spaces and privacy. It creates a different work atmosphere by giving employees different unhindered view-points to the roof as well as to the outside. It also creates a beautiful volumetric spatial experience - quality of spaces and light changes. Site area - 350 sqm ( 3767 sq ft) Hand-drawn and hand-rendered.

At night, the space transforms into a story-hub - where stories are made, written and spread. The staircase along with the coloured transparent glass rising upto 4 m creates a defining facade in the space.

These writings on the glass along with itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colour create an interesting visual boundary between the private and the public space.The coloured shadows created by the writings result in a quirky work environment.

It is less about what you â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;seeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and more about what you perceive.

A wheel with VIBGYOR colours under water rotates in the central double-height space in an alternating fast and slow manner ( turning white- then colourful again) casting colourful shimmery water reflections onto the reflective surfaces. A descent through a slide takes the child underground to sudden darkness and then complete brightness with a view of the green contours and the sky.
