The Saffronart Team’s latest update on NIVIM Goa
New York: While being fundamentally connected to its site and location, Nivim Goa is built in a distinct contemporary tropical style. It offers a modern open plan layout where there is seamless interaction between the inside and outside.

To blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor, the house is designed such that two walls in each room can completely open to make the rooms a part of the surrounding landscape. Each bedroom is designed like a pavilion in the garden with its own private verandahs and green space as well as large bathrooms that can only be built in the countryside with their own dedicated open space and open baths. The remainder of the site is designed with overlapping courtyards and gardens.
NIVIM Goa is built with tremendous love and that is evident in every small detail in the house. Anjali can talk at length about the big design concepts to smallest details like the choice of custom made wash basins and brass inlaid floors.
