English Classical Facade in Punjab Residence Designed by Diggvijay Rajdev Architect | Chandigarh

The Sukhavas residence is an elegant two-story structure blending classical and modern styles. The exterior presents an English classical appearance featuring grey and green stones, detailed groove work, and traditional chajjas. Timeless elements such as Juliet balconies and gentle curves depart from the usual Punjabi architectural conventions. More insights about the project are shared by the architect on SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Living and Dining Area

Stepping inside, the space exudes a transitional design philosophy. Straying from vivid hues, the interiors accentuate select pieces. Sabyasachi fabrics adorn specific sofas, while a palette of neutral tones prevails across the upholstery, giving an air of sophistication.

The natural stone elements dynamically respond to daylight variations, adding depth and texture to the dining experience.

TV Lounge

Crafted as a snug retreat, the TV lounge exudes casual comfort. Ceilings adorned with wallpaper and ombre curtains create an inviting ambience. The introduction of wooden panelling balances the Italian flooring, infusing warmth into the space.

A seamless transition zone, the lift lobby exudes elegant minimalism with inlay patterns andItalian Botticino marble flooring. Mouldings crafted from HDF impart a modern, minimalist touch.


Radiating a refined aura, the kitchen gives a formal sophistication vibe.

First Floor Lobby

Curves grace the open gallery, providing a contrast against predominantly flat ceilings throughout the house.

These elegant curves capture attention, accentuating the spacious corridor.

Grandparents Bedroom

The bedroom showcases distressed wood detailing and subtle designs in TV consoles, side tables, and bedside tables, exuding sophistication and wisdom. Subtle fabric elements infuse gentle hues, harmonising with the serene ambience.

The thoughtfully designed layout of the bathroom features distinct wet and dry benches, ensuring comfort and mobility. Elegant vanities and tiles that mimic natural stone introduce an element of luxury.

Powder Bathroom

Radiating glamour and opulence, the powder bathroom boasts a tasteful blend of Nexion tiles and gold-dusted accents.

Study and Mandir

The study and Mandir is a versatile space offering both functionality and elegance.

Curved niches, Corian detailing, and gold-dusted borders provide privacy without compromising on grace and spirituality for the Mandir. While storage spaces blend seamlessly along the same wall to cater for office requirements.

Master Bathroom & Dresser

Abstract tile patterns dominate the master bathroom, showcasing thoughtful geometric designs. A skylight illuminates the shower area, while a backlit abstract mirror introduces an artistic touch.

The master dresser, dedicated to the lady of the house's makeup rituals, adds an aura of refined functionality by offering a sitting mirror.

Son's Bedroom

Overlooking the park, the son's bedroom emanates a youthful charm through leather accents and interesting lighting effects. Wooden panelling frames the bed, creating a vibrant yet cosy ambience.

Rustic tiles and textured stones outline the son's bathroom and wardrobe, offering an integrated space where practicality meets aesthetic appeal.

Second Son's Bedroom

The second son's room echoes an Airbnb vibe. Amplifying a vacation feel, the design employs rattan textures and bird-themed fabrics, resonating with the occupant's global lifestyle.
