During the pandemic, people have turned their gaze indoors. By this, we mean that folks have started to understand the importance of their private spaces. Your home has to be a reflection of who you are as a person, but at the same time, it also has to be a place that is considered your safe haven. The KariGhars, an uber-luxe interior design firm based in Bangalore, shed some light on the rising trend of putting a greater emphasis on your home. The lockdown has been difficult for all of us, but a direct consequence of the lockdown has been the rise in importance given to homes and the comfort level associated with it. All the projects talked about in this article have been constructed during the pandemic by The KariGhars.
Villa 32, or Prestige Lakeside Habitat, is one of the projects undertaken by the firm, which places a lot of importance on the value of having a cozy yet luxurious space for the family to spend their lockdown in. This house has been carefully built, with attention given to details from the dazzling ceilings to the automated kitchen and living room to the serene garden with a koi fish pond. Everything a family could ever want or hope for in an ideal home has been given in this space, where they can be the best versions of themselves. Abhishek Chadha, the Co-Founder and Principal Designer of The KariGhars, strongly believes in the power of transformative spaces. Any space that has the power to move you while making you feel welcome, is the vibe they have been able to perfectly capture through all the homes they have built. However, the pandemic did make things challenging for them, says Abhishek. But with the help of a dedicated team and tenacious suppliers, the firm was able to overcome the challenges.
The KariGhars have yet again weaved their special brand of magic on another one of their opulent projects, aptly named “The Blooming Casa.” This house has not conformed to the conventional idea of luxury as the client called for an amalgamation of contemporary and traditional home styles. Nonetheless, this house has blossomed into the brainchild of the principal designers and the client through a beautiful and masterful use of materials like marble, metal, and lighting elements. Catering to every need the resident might have, this home boasts of a serene landscape, using skillful techniques like symmetry, smart illumination, and automation. One of the best parts about this house is that it is centred on the principles of sustainability as it is built such that it can capitalize on natural light. Local artisans have been employed to decorate the house, making it very easy to carry out during a pandemic as shipping costs are slashed drastically. Again, Abhishek is of the opinion that with the help of seamless and integrated design input, the output that leads to the creation of such a house during the pandemic gets marginally easier. At the same time, Abhishek is also acutely aware of the fact that the needs and demands made by the client will reign supreme and will significantly influence how the course of the house’s construction will occur.
Adamant about delivering the epitome of luxury, The KariGhars have done a stunning job of consistently delivering on their promises of creating bespoke homes for their clients. Even the behemoth of a pandemic has not been able to stop the force that the KariGhars work with.
