The project’s design story is quite interesting in terms of the timeline that it followed. Starting out in 2015. the clients being one of the well- known general practitioner doctors in Surat, wanted to accommodate their growing needs and renovate the house by adding two extra bedrooms. The existing house was a 25-30 years old construction with sloping roofs, so instead of unnecessarily spending money behind the same by changing the interiors completely, we suggested to keep it bare minimum. But it took the clients nearly five years, i.e. 2020, to mentally prepare and convince themselves to create an entirely new house as they were emotionally attached to the old one.
