Interior spaces get transformed

Interior spaces get transformed

According to the eldest daughter of the owner, Ms. Nehrir Khan, a balcony at the back was converted into a nursery, after she was born. However, her parents quickly decided not to keep her there, and it was then turned into a play area for the kids. Later on, when her younger sister was born, both sisters stayed in that room on a bunk bed. Another major change was the addition of a sliding door between the drawing and dining space in the late 1980s. As Asaf Khan often entertained many guests, the partition provided privacy between them and the other family members on such occasions.
