Throughout the house, the rock extrudes into the space, contrasting with the luxurious textures of the furnishings. Interior and exterior fireplace hearths are carved out of existing stone; leveled on top, they are otherwise left raw. The master bathroom’s sink is composed of water cascading through three polished pools in the existing stone. Off the main space, a powder room is fully carved out of the rock. A skytube is through to the top of the rock and topped by glass. A mirror set within the tube serves as a focal point, reflecting natural light into the space and connecting to a forged bronze sink......more

The materials of the cabs, including the refined wood ceilings, merge the lobby aesthetic with that of the apartments above.

The Wonder Room project was a chance to reintroduce those elements of surprise and wonder to the Selfridges and create a department store for the 21st century. Inspired by the concept of Wunderkammer and Curiosity Cabinets, the Wonder Room is a luxury gifts emporium with the energy of a souk.
The Wonder Room occupies 1,800 sqm of London finest retail space on the ground floor of Selfridges’ Oxford Street store. The key element of KDa’s design is an elegant wall of fins running around the perimeter of the room, and between these fins float crisp display cases. The idea that brands would have a uniform facade that they would all adhere to seemed a clever idea. Each brand would have beautiful open views into their concession stores, but when seen obliquely, the fins become a screen behind which the brands disappear and the focus turns to the central area of the room.......more

Restaurant Interior Design | Monsoon Restaurant | Park Hotel Bangalore | India | Project Orange Architects and Designers
We always try to create a sense of place by making connections to the locale, and through our research we were captivated to discover that Karnataka is home to some 318 species of Butterflies. Some travel as much as 3000 miles in their short lives – so they represent another kind of traveller. We wanted to embed this motif into the walls of the space so designed a series of panels with intricate inlay work depicting groups of dancing Butterflies. While completing the projects looking out over the pool we were amazed to see a kaleidoscope of butterflies dancing over the water – maybe they had come to take a look?.......more

The existing series of diagonal columns supporting the residential floor above are emphasized and connected to create a continuous line, framing the dramatic views. Custom-made terracotta tiles, echoing the roof tiles of the area, cover the floor and bar and extend to the exterior. The ceiling has been sloped mimicking the slope of the roof above. This combined with the diagonal columns creates an unusual unrest in the space. The contextual colour palette creates a merging of inside and outside and a constant reminder of the natural setting......more

Following a fire, which destroyed the public face of the building, NORD were approached to design a replacement showroom and office.
The single storey timber structure is constructed entirely from material sourced within the adjacent warehouse. The single use of timber as a material not only simplifies the form but also creates an ambiguity between structure and skin, heightening the intensity of the material and product......more
