With the demolition of a palatial heritage mansion, all the wooden doors and windows, antique furniture, chandeliers and precious collections of vintage books, art, stamps, coins and vases (dating back to the early 1800’s) have been meticulously saved and restored to use in a high rise, modern apartment in the heart of the city. The wooden louvres have been used as partitions for rooms and for cupboards lining the dining areas, filled with books and precious artefacts, visible only if you open the louvres. Furniture was re-imagined; materials like terrazzo, glass and brass were used for seating and tabletops, alongside contemporary Italian furniture and lamps. Blending the old and the new seamlessly to create timeless memories and adapting to contemporar y living spaces became the central story.
