This residence is approximately 2500 sq. ft. 3 bedroom apartment located in posh suburb of Mumbai.
The living room is a place that must be comfortable and expressive of the occupants' tastes and have a level of formality that suits their lifestyle and entertaining needs.
This award-winning project is a stunning example of how to combine new and old. The architect has made an addition to the old shell.
This proposes a refreshing change for the rejuvenation of a common inner suburban housing type in India.
Living the life of a minimalist is often easier said than done particularly for a family.
The pursuit of perfection through simplifying form and material has to be poised against practical realities. The owners had every intention of achieving the former.
This generously sized apartment was created for a business man who wants all the comfort of home combined with all the luxuries of a five-star-hotel. It needed to provide a balance between business and personal life whilst celebrating India's vibrant lifestyle.
Another parameter to the brief was the need to be international in luxury but exude a definite Asian charm. Attention to this detail was over seen directly by Sonali who regularly travels the world sourcing soft furnishings, textiles, ceramics, lights, original artwork and also floor coverings. However, the attitude is modern Asia rather than anything ethnic. Often, the only clue might be in colour - a ripe aubergine, a vibrant red, or simply the more earthy tones that are akin to Indian interiors.
