Enhancing Lifestyles

A 2,500 sq ft, four-bedroom apartment on Altamount Road, Mumbai, has been converted into a three BHK to enhance its spaciousness quotient…

The fulcrum of the design is centered around creating a comfortable and contemporary lifestyle for a family of four based on design tenets like simplicity, subtle sophistication, textural play and clean lines.

Taking this concept forward, Neesha Alwani and Shruti Jalan, principal architects of n+s devised a layout that offered maximum space opportunities. For instance, as one enters the apartment through a long passage like vestibule, the living room lies to the left while the kitchen and utility area lie to the right; tucked away at the end of the passage. Getting in the outdoorsy feel is the balcony, which lies adjacent to the seating area of the living room.

Sophisticated utilities in the form of tan leather sofas, cane furniture, potted plants, marble panel backdrop, dark polished wooden dining table and crystal chandeliers add charm. Accents of bright and bold colours jazz up the otherwise subdued overall colour palette, while the smooth cream marble flooring flowing through the house holds it together.

Neutral toned walls become a wonderful canvas for displaying numerous eclectic art works and accessories; highlighted by a combination of indirect light and ceiling spots.

The interplay of dark paneling against bright flooring continues from the living room into the master suite while in the master bath juxtaposition of a milky basin counter against a mirrored panel reflects light and adds volume.

In the children’s bedrooms, a sense of playfulness is ushered in viz. bold colours, textures and greenery. Interestingly, wall shelves in the shape of tables and an orange spiral storage unit are highlight features.

Fittingly, the house not only looks after its members’ requirements but also enhances their lifestyle quotient.
