The entire setting benefits greatly from the window that allows in beautiful sunlight as well as offers views of the surrounding nature. Further, the cabinet adds on to the comfort of the reading area by providing ample amounts of space to store books as well as other interesting antiques.
Instead of wasting space by constructing a brick wall, the architects have creatively fabricated a partition wall by using perforated metal sheets. The design of the partition looks very futuristic but in fact is extremely simple to achieve.
The dining table is positioned conveniently on the other side of the metal partition. The table as such is sleek and minimal in its appearance with solid black legs, a sturdy wooden top, and four comfortable chairs to surround it.

Lastly, we also liked the lighting design that is inbuilt with the cabinet shelves which illuminates the space as well gives it a very sleek look.
Designed with a bold backdrop of dark gray, this toilet looks stunning courtesy of the combination of the gray walls and the white fixtures. The mirror that runs across the length of both the walls creates a nice optical illusion which makes the space look much larger than its actual size.
