Arredatore Design Studio Merged Two Apartments To Create This 10,000 SQFT Luxurious Private Abode in Kolkata


Located on the third floor of10000 sqft. private House in Kolkata, ‘Preciosa’ is a plush home designed by Kolkata-based Arredatore Design Studio headed by designer Arunika Sarkar. The family longed for a spacious, comfortable, and plush home that was packed with function. They had given the firm an entire floor which has two apartments. This allowed the design firm to execute the brief aptly as they combined both the apartments together and artfully designed one spacious home. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) talked with the designer to give more details about the project. Take a look:

“We have segmented it into two zones, Living & Dining zone. The Living zone comprises of living area and master suite along with box room, master toilet & kids room and the Dining zone has dining area along with two guest rooms and kitchen,” said the designer.


Eye-Catching Entrance 

The entrance foyer is given a cohesive design to conglomerate both the apartments together as one. The striking entrance passage features a wall mural with inlay work of gold leafing on Italian marble layered with a handcrafted, bespoke wooden console with spiral legs along with a golden accent white marble top.


The opposite wall portrays a custom-made temple camouflaged on Belgian marble wall paneling. The foyer & dining area is bifurcated by a pillar, cladded with Italian marble along with a screen partition. 

Bespoke Furniture in the Dining Area

The design team has installed their handcrafted bespoke furniture in the dining area where the dining table is made of solid wood carving legs with exotic pink granite top along with tufted upholstered chairs.

The middle of the ceiling is a combination of rhombus-shaped wooden & bronze mirrors. A wooden box panelling with a nude finish conceals the Electrical & Automation distribution boxes.

The modular Kitchen is utterly functional with high-end Hafele fittings & fixtures finished in grey tone accentuated with Moroccan tiles and Brazilian moss green granite.

Geometric Mirrors To Enlarge the Living Area

To elevate the constricted living area space, the design studio has used bevelled geometric-shaped bronze mirrors, layering with Italian marble and wooden cornice with infused gold colour where we have placed the TV unit. “We kept the opposite wall muted with grey Nexion slabs and niches panelled with bronze mirrors.”


Artworks To Enliven The Space

The narrow up-ceiling is a conglomeration of panelled wood & bronze mirrors. We have used multiple brass objects. Design team has incorporated incredible paintings and sculptures of local artists to encourage their artworks which also featured social issues of Pandemic.
