Inspired from classic Victorian Interiors, the design reflects a dignified and formal aesthetic , exuding an aura of elegance and authority. Stepping into the room, one is greeted by high ceilings adorned with intricate laminated wooden tones. The walls are dressed in rich, deep hues, such as dark wood paneling creating a sense of warmth and sophistication & material connection with nature.
A grand, solid wood desk occupies the center of the room, commanding attention with its imposing presence. The desk is intricately carved, showcasing ornamental details, perhaps inspired by the filigree work of the Victorian era. The Justice’s chair, positioned behind the desk, is plush and upholstered in sumptuous leather, providing comfort and support during long hours of work.
Large windows with heavy, floor-to-ceiling draperies allow natural light to filter into the room, casting a warm glow on the space & visual connection with nature. To create a refined atmosphere, the lighting is soft and muted, with a combination of chandelier and table lamps placed strategically throughout the room. The chandelier provide an air of grandeur, while the table lamps on the Justice’s desk and side tables offer a more focused and intimate illumination for detailed work.
Finishing touches include portraits of eminent legal figures adorning the walls, along with carefully chosen artwork that reflects the history and culture of India. These pieces contribute to the overall ambiance of the office, celebrating the nation’s legal heritage and instilling a sense of reverence for the judicial process.
The theme of connected Waiting & Retiring rooms resemble that of the office, minimalizing detailing as per spatial functionality with a combination of off- white paint- wainscoting & wooden flooring- paneling till cill level.
Summarizing, the apex chamber design in the Supreme Court blends the grandeur of Victorian design with a formal, dignified setting, creating a space that inspires respect, intellectual pursuits, and the pursuit of justice, at the same time ensuring the user’s well- being through biophilic interiors & connections with nature.
