Sometimes, an envious zipcode for an apartment in Mumbai comes with what’s a given: lack of natural light, matchbox sized rooms, and lower ceilings. But, as Zenab Lokhandwala of ZED Designs shows there’s nothing a clever renovation can’t redeem. She gave this 1,230 sq.ft apartment in Cuffe Parade, Mumbai a new lease of life. Home to the Bhatnagars, the family needed more storage space, a larger functional kitchen, a servant quarter, and of course, modern aesthetics. The apartment went under the hammer, literally, as Zenab ripped down the apartment for renovation to its bare structure. She then adeptly redesigned the…

Every architect has a signature. I’ve come to identify Amit Shastri of Amit Shastri Architects with geometry, play of light, neutral tones leaning towards gray, and liberal use of wood — all that take a contemporary form. So, when it was time to design an apartment for his family, he stayed true to his identity. The final rendition is this harmonious apartment designed intentionally with natural elements of wood and light. Step inside this clean home bathed in neutral tones with tons of clever storage ideas. About the home: Who lives here: Amit Shastri and his family.Location: Vile Parle – West,…

Brick walls are not uncommon; they come in many avatars from red to white, and wallpaper to natural. But, to have an entire apartment clad in red brick walls couple with exposed RCC for ceiling and natural stone flooring? That’s the real deal – a whole package for making others envious of your gorgeous home. This 2,290 sq.ft apartment in Ahmedabad designed by The Grid Architects fits the bill for owner’s pride, neighbor’s envy perfectly. It ticks the boxes for an industrial style apartment just as much as an old townhouse. About the project: Location: Ahmedabad Size: 2,290 sq.ft Type:…

This 3-BHK apartment in the uber-luxurious World One project is home to a family comprising three generations. Studio Osmosis designed the space to exude the warmth and character of a home by consciously downplaying luxury and the impersonal nature of a hotel suite, just as the family desired. Given the address, you would expect to find the space decked with imported furniture and expensive chandeliers. It’s devoid of all that; if anything it wears the heart of the city on its walls, shedding the formality and welcoming enough to put your feet up on the couch as homes are meant…

Will beige, black, and white ever go out of style? Call them boring at your peril, but these subdued tones are the kings of neutral palette that bring in sophistication like no other. This contemporary apartment in Mumbai designed by Komal Sachdev for Manghwanis aces the neutral game with finesse. The lack of color in this apartment design is compensated with textures, inlay patterns, and deeper shades of accent/furniture pieces. About the project: Who lives here: Mr. Lalit Manghwani with his family Location: Mumbai Type: a 3-BHK apartment in Runwal Greens, Mumbai Size: 1,350 sq.ft. Duration: 4 months, 2018 Designed…

That deep rich cobalt blue in the dining room caught my fancy enough to explore the rest of this modest 1,120 sq.ft apartment in Ahmedabad. Designed for a small family of three by Ignitus Architectural Studio, this 3-BHK apartment makes up for the minimal spatial footprint through clever layout and design. The family wanted a home that combines the simplicity of everyday living with luxury elements. Now, that pretty much sums up what most of us aspire in our homes! About the project: Who lives here: a couple and their son with parents often visiting Location: Saheli Sanidhya Apartment Scheme,…

Most Mumbai apartments come in two variations: ones with modest square footage or sprawling ones with a spectacular view. This apartment of 1050 sq. ft housing a family of four falls under the first category. Designers have to be at their creative best to make a small space work in order to accommodate storage needs and make it visually appealing. It was a blessing in disguise for this family as the designers – Bhumika and Chintan of Limited Edition Design Studio – were immediate family. Many things with respect to choices and lifestyle go unsaid when you are family. Aptly…

Stone-crete plastered surfaces. Brick cladding. Cement flooring. Solid wood. Open spaces. No tiles. This penthouse belongs to Amit Sanghvi, an industrialist, who returned after spending several years in the US. He wanted his home to mimic the rawness and openness of the exposed industrial design that he took a liking to from his years of living in New York. Harsh Boghani of The Crossboundaries gave shape to Amit’s vision by transforming this concrete shell (literally) into a beautiful industrial apartment dressed in natural materials. Personally, for me, it was amazing to see this less-traveled path of appreciating raw concrete. The design…

This Ahmedabad apartment designed by Projects 3.14 is a fine example of flexible architecture, of fluid spaces; one where internally walls are not cast in stone permanently to delineate functions and spaces. It’s not often you come across a project of limited square footage like this that comfortably squeezes in as much as this one does. About the project: Who lives here: a young couple with their 7 year old son Location: Ahmedabad Year built: 2016 Size: 1050 sq ft Type: apartment with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms Designed by: Noopur Shah, Project Head, Projects3.14 Noopur expands on the brief…
