Positive hues

Revamping a building has its pros and cons. On the positive aspect, it is financially lucrative compared to constructing a newly built structure from scratch.

At the same time, it is a challenging job as the architect may encounter various unique designs and serious structural issues. Like constructing a new building renovating a structure also take meticulous planning and time.

So it was more and more challenging to New Delhi-based architecture firm Spaces Architects@ka as they had to complete the revamping a 45-year-old apartment within a very short period of time. And it took them only 35 days to dismantle things, design and get it executed on site and complete the interiors.

The main focus has been given to colour as it is an integral element of the interior. The concept behind this artistic residence is to smartly use the colours.
