The interior designing project introduced a 1bhk house in goa. Having the advantage of choosing a client, fitness instructor Sonia, was chosen by me. Her routine posed intriguing as she would inculcate teaching Zumba while also being continually working towards building her career as a nutritionist. Teaching dance to people, who would then also come to her house while also reaching out to dance enthusiasts across video meets, this house needed to be versatile and contribute to her various needs. Nonetheless, she would also give consultations in person or over telecommunication. Such varied interests and the need for space led to the thinking of flexible furniture. When put across as a metaphor, it also reflects in the sectional elevation, where the lighting is through red sleeky rods, which conform to the immediate surface and surface elements put on walls. As an influencer, she promotes her interests across platforms hence the elevations were supposed to compliment her new-age self.
Welcoming guests and family often, she also reflected as a family-oriented person, moreover being away from the hustle of urban life, led the design patterns to integrate subtle hints of goan traditional patterns. Nonetheless, the design is kept modern through pastel usage.
