The Works Interiors is a design studio based in New Delhi, founded by Devika and Raj Khosla. The couple has a passion for creating spaces that reflect the personality and lifestyle of their clients. They have worked on various projects, ranging from residential to commercial, across India and abroad.
One of their recent projects was a holiday home in Kasauli, a hill station in Himachal Pradesh. The clients, who are avid travellers and nature lovers, wanted a cosy and comfortable home that would offer them a panoramic view of the snow-capped mountains.
The challenge: To create a home that blends with the surroundings
The project was not without its challenges. The site was located on a steep slope, with limited access and space. The existing structure was a dilapidated cottage that needed major renovation. The clients also had a tight budget and timeline for the project.
The Works Interiors took up the challenge and came up with a design that would maximise the potential of the site and the structure. They decided to retain the original stone walls and wooden roof of the cottage, and add a new floor and a balcony to create more space and light. They also used local materials and craftsmen to reduce the cost and environmental impact of the project.
The result: A home that celebrates the beauty of nature
The final result was a stunning home that celebrates the beauty of nature and the charm of the hill station. The home has three bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and a balcony. The interiors are warm and inviting, with a mix of rustic and modern elements. The colour palette is inspired by the hues of the sky, the mountains, and the forest. The furniture and accessories are carefully curated to reflect the clients’ taste and preferences.
The highlight of the home is the balcony, which offers an uninterrupted view of the majestic Himalayas. The balcony has a wooden deck, a fireplace, and a seating area, where the clients can enjoy a hot cup of coffee, the misty morning air, and the changing colours of the sky. The balcony also has a glass railing, which creates a sense of openness and connection with the surroundings.
The home is a perfect example of how a dream can be turned into reality with creativity, innovation, and dedication. The Works Interiors have created a home that not only meets the clients’ needs and expectations, but also enhances their quality of life.
The feedback: A happy and satisfied client
The clients were delighted with the outcome of the project. They appreciated the efforts and expertise of The Works Interiors, and praised their attention to detail and professionalism. They said that the home was exactly what they had envisioned, and that they felt a sense of belonging and peace in their new abode.
They also said that the home was a great investment, as it had increased the value and appeal of their property. They said that they would love to spend more time in their holiday home, and invite their friends and family to share the experience. They thanked The Works Interiors for making their dream come true, and said that they would recommend them to anyone looking for a design studio that can transform spaces into stories.
