The Caterpillar House


Interior Design of the Penthouse for Dr. Nirav Shah & Dr. Rupal Shah at Surat

Area: 6500 sq ft (604 sq m)
Year: 2016 (completed)

• The penthouse belongs to a young doctor couple at Surat, offering a wonderful view to the perennial Tapti river in Surat. The lower level houses the formal living, dining space,three bedrooms, kitchen and the ancillary utilities and services.The upper level has the master bedroom, the media and multipurpose room and a guest room. What holds together the entire upper level is the roof garden offering the long vista of the river. The project was conceived as a luxurious-urban-functional-modern home, reflecting the family’s life style and aspirations leaving room for experimentation.The flooring is a carefully thought combination of Indian white marble, Kotah Stone and Imported sandstone from Europe. The graphical qualities of these flooring patterns get subtly reflected in ceiling pattern combining polished American White Ash Wood with white paint.
The art integration in entire home makes the home very personal, unique and adds some humor. The caricatures on the elevator door, the multimedia mural at entrance and of course the Caterpillar, made out of painted utensils, really stand out among others.
