Amara properties case study 2

Property development company Amara Property needed a flagship office to showcase their impeccable style credentials and interior design services. Founder Rutu Buddhdev reveals how she achieved her vision.

Project Details

Milano door in oak with ebony oil finish – from £7,010 + VAT

Absolut two door sideboard –  £3,536

Liem dark nature tile – £114 / sqm

Indic gris gloss tile – £88 / sqm


We liked how the modern design of the Milano contrasted with the traditional external elements. Our office design is modern and masculine, and the door connects the internal design vision to the external. Rutu Buddhdev - Amara Property

Please tell us about your project.

A new office offered the perfect opportunity to showcase our interior design skills and reflect the homes Amara Property creates. It needed to be timeless and luxurious for visiting clients and a practical space for our team to work in.

What’s your design vision?

I wanted the space to be clean and contemporary with judicious use of dark colours and textures to bring the scheme to life. Dark charcoals offset light greys and taupe shades, with details such as bronze inlay and an antique mirror bringing warmth and interest to the space.

Why did you choose the Milano design?

After much consideration, I chose the Milano design for all exterior and interior doors – I love the quality and the look. The design, with its horizontal varied grooves, complements my vision and colour palette. To add my own stamp, I decided to include stainless steel strips to the external side of the front door, which are both beautiful and bespoke. This is enhanced further by the sleek statement stainless steel handle (option 11). I also chose fingerprint entry, motorised locking, and pivot opening for convenience and security.

For the finish, I knew ebony oil would work beautifully with the colour scheme and I decided to match all the doors – internal and external – to create impact. Crittall-style room dividers are practical for a working space, and they also highlight the Milano doors and their dark textural finish. 

What was the most challenging part of the project?

I can easily answer this one – coordinating the different trades proved tricky! This was partly because I demanded the highest quality finishes, lighting, and joinery but it was, without a doubt, worth it when I look around the office. 

What was your favourite part of the build?

Choosing the finishes was very exciting because I knew the right decisions would create a versatile working area and a show home for clients. I’m delighted with the finished result.
