Amidst a potpourri of high-end cafes and designer label boutiques in the genteel bylanes of Khan Market, comes this ‘statement in restraint’.

The oversized black matt finished steel door, panelled with clear glass, takes one to a near dark stairway guided through a sliver of light. Switching from a bright to a dusky interior, it sends one to feel the obvious contraction of the vision. The eyelids merrily enjoy this soothing change of sensual retreat. Built-in step lights dabs a warm luminance along the edge, which makes it appear as a guiding trail. The staircase on the left has pictures of famous vintage rock bands pressed against an austere pale wall and the right is washed in a weathered patina and gradating ochre radiance of brick surface. The white lime interstice between these tiles energises the spirit of the space and also adds as a boldly beaming backdrop juxtaposed against a dark forefront.
