With a successful career spanning two decades, indoor designer Amrita Guha has made a title for her distinct style. She has worked on more than 350 homes and is known for blending the raw, almost minimalist aesthetic with the ornate intricacy of many of India’s traditional crafts.
Several years ago, she had a chance to rebuild her husband’s family home to meet the particular growing needs of the family.
“A house is always a reflection of which we are and whom we wish to end up being, ” said Amrita. The project, which took over two years to complete, comprises a five-storey duplex for two households.
Standing in front of the house is a stately Harsingar tree, that is not commonly found in New Delhi. “Under normal circumstances, we would never have a shrub right in front of the main door obstructing the road. But because it was planted by the father-in-law, we wanted to keep his tale alive, ” the lady explained.
“We are privileged to get lots of greenery that will surrounds us, despite the fact that we are in the heart of the city of South Delhi, that is otherwise pretty much the concrete jungle. ”
