Luxury Apartment facing the Queen’s Necklace

Location of the project - Walkeshwar, Mumbai
Area - 3500 sq.ft.
Unique Features of the Project

This is a unique sea facing apartment with a spectacular view of the famed Mumbai ‘Queens Necklace’ coast.

Although the overall layout was a typical grid formed apartment layout there was a deliberate attempt to create something out of the ordinary both in terms of layout and then ultimately finishes.

Free-flowing spaces and exploration of curved and sinuous forms creates a new spatial typology for apartment design.

Special efforts have been made by incorporating large oversize windows with minimum frames to make sure that the view is not obstructed by vertical members of the window frame.

The challenge was to make this apartment feel more intimate. The low ceiling heights and structural beams were to be camouflaged so as to make the space feel seamless.

The Living Room
Intimate sofa arrangements ensures a sense of closeness and connect with the guests in the formal living room. A wall faced piano is neatly tucked into the corner of the space. The spectacular floor finished with a customized marble and glass colibiri pattern takes centre stage and works as a metaphorical rug to make the space more connected.

The Dining Room
The Dining windows have been redesigned to enjoy a seamless glazing over-looking the view. Reflective surfaces on the ceiling and a brass dining table serve as an interesting backdrop for a bespoke chandelier which orients one in the direction of the view.

The Kitchen
In the shape of an open capsule the kitchen has peripheral curved counters and a mat glass island arc standing central. The finishes are in tones of white with a striped marble floor adding a visual context. With state of the art gadgets having their designated zones it serves as an elevating work space.

The Master Bedroom
The view has been strategically considered while creating the luxurious master bedroom. Notice the defragmentation of the typical bathroom layout by positioning the shower cubicle as a cast glass finished enclosure almost in the middle of the space. The main master bed from ‘Roberto Cavalli’ takes centre stage and is aligned perfectly to reveal a stunning view of the sea and the skyline across. Every individual piece of activity is planned in the master bedroom suite keeping in mind an experience and comfort oriented point of view.

This typical four bedroom apartment has been totally redesigned to ensure that the space feels like a flowing volume. The elegant contrast of material finishes and their emotive response as one traverses through the space is what completes the home.
