MBMM – Series 1 – Make overs of your house

All of live in a home and will definitely seek pleasure if our rooms are inviting, colorful, warm and welcoming. But our exciting thought would be cut off – looking how expensive it would be ?

Can we do a minimum budget make over ?

Who doesn’t like a home makeover? And what better if it’s on a shoe-string budget. Small Budget Makeover is not only a home makeover effort with a crunch budget but an effort to bring families together by making over their mundane living space into their dream homes. Its a process where, we architect designers visit homes to get a fair understanding of the space to align the needs and expectations of the families with their ideas. The twist lies in the fact that the team of experts are faced with constraints not only monetarily but also with time where we have to strike a balance between sourcing all the required materials at the lowest possible price while maintaining the aesthetics of the home.

We all love our home right ?

A house is made of walls and beams but a home is made of love and dreams. At the heart of every makeover is a story waiting to be told. From Kids gifting a makeover to their mother who battled cancer and came out triumphant, to a daughter-in-law who wants their in-laws to migrate from small town to a big city and start living with them, the show helps families make homes. The show is not just about the makeover of spaces, but it is also a makeover of relationships between families. We as architects work a magic for the families who would certainly be extremely happy with the makeover which was beyond their expectation.

Commendable Streets/Complete Streets: We live in cities, in urban areas, in apartments – We commute daily and walk around the streets. Do our major streets facilitate pedestrian movements, trees, bicycles or any elements of public in nature? This topic explores different ways to redefine streets in urban areas. We would take up a junction in given scope of study and redesign the street and junction that facilitates smooth flow of users, vehicles and also accommodates street elements.
