The greatest challenge for Logic Architecture in undertaking the redesign of Kalkaji Residence was adapting the limited space into open halls that both represented the loud and quiet ambitions of the owners.


The entirety of the floor plan was uprooted, and new, broader windows were implemented to guide light into the home.

From the rigid bones to the incorporation of spatial comfort, the Kalkaji Residence has brought the space of open fields to the inside. The soft palette of brown and white, accompanied by an assortment of greenery allows the apartment to hold a capacious feel while still maintaining a cosy, rustic air.

Every space has been utilised and every room holds a corner of peace and tranquility. Kalkaji Residence is a master of contrasts, coalescing the different moods, materials, design, and colour in a thematically vibrant yet simplistic home.

The tiered timber-lined ceiling and gentle archways capture the light and the eye line to enhance the vibrant space. The use of naturalistic materials, of wood, granite, and metal – all manipulated to play with one’s psychological perception – offer a subtle path through the rooms, heightening the sense of interconnectivity.

The home holds both a quaint solitude and vibrant hospitality to guests, as it perfectly reflects the owner’s desire of having a home that complements their lifestyle, one of cleanliness, and minimalism.
