The word ‘Catenary’ translates to the curve made by a flexible cord, suspended freely between two fixed points. Hence, the name sets the tone of this house which is surrounded by soft curves from ceiling to walls and artefacts at every corner of the house. The space crafts a visual delight and manifest’s-with a curvilinear design. The house symbolises a pure style of opulence right at the entrance. 

The bold black striped flooring on white marble welcomes at the entry and leads to the rest of the house. The abstract figure of a lady in brass and mirror in the dining area and the composition of artwork on the living room wall are the showstoppers of the Catenary house. Following the design thread of the tropics, the wallpaper in the master bedroom blends harmoniously with the nature inspired theme. While minimalism binds the space, orchestrating an unusual and artistic character in the space. 

A nuanced creation of elements all work together with seamless cohesion. There is an air of subdued elegance in the house. It celebrates a relationship between whites and shades of grey keeping the material pallet neutral and minimal. Sunlight sweeps every corner filtering an ambient glow and highlighting textural nuances. The choice of light coloured upholstery and furniture in the house, alters the perception of the space. 

Driven by creativity in design, every zone features a characteristic hue, affording an instant visual identity. Sleek silhouettes of pendant lights with metallic finishes grace the design, concocting a hint of contemporary luxury. A smattering of curious and personal artefacts around the house add a dash of aesthetics. Peppered with playful interiors and precisions, the house provides an overall unbound artistic experience.
