Residential Interior

The 3 bedroom apartment, located in one of the many lavish skyscrapers in Goregaon, is rewarded with impressive views of the evergreen Aarey grounds set against the background of the city. The apartment is a second home for an elderly couple, intended for use primarily over the weekends.

The bulk of the creative energy was spent in transforming the builder fitted apartment into a homely space, suited to the requirements of an ageing couple.

The scope of work was fairly limited with minimal civil and carpentry work, thereby limiting the opportunity of intervention. As a restrained intervention within the space, a single feature element was introduced in all the rooms.

In the primary space of the home, the living room, the focal point is a floor to ceiling shelving unit, mindfully curated to conceal the TV unit when desired. The wall unit is clad in a combination of matt walnut veneer and glossy black paint that stands out against the burgundy suede backdrop.

The three bedrooms, left primarily bare, featuredistinctive shelving units, which hold bothautilitarian andaesthetic appeal.Whilea minimal see through metal shelving unit, set against the windowcompletes onebedroom, a shelving unit designed with a combination of metal and marble clad surfaces is the focal pointof another

The overall use of materials in the space compliments the warm palette of the existing beige marble, which served as a base reference for selection.
