Private Penthouse

Kaushik Mukherjee


In a very up-market area of new age Kolkata, this modern avatar of an apartment on the top floor, had abundance of natural light and ventilation. With hardly any internal partition to segregate spaces, it almost felt like a large hall with bedrooms attached at the far ends. Keeping in mind the usage and functional aspects, minimal intervention was done to define spaces. A large living/bedroom space along with utilities such as Laundry etc was added on the terrace in steel fabricated structure. Old Timber beams and original Italian Marble (Statuario and Marquina)Tiles, belonging to heritage buildings have been salvaged and given new life by fusing with chic understated look and feel A unique blend of old world colonial architecture in Kolkata and a classic contemporary look has been attempted for this project.
