In a city starved of green spaces, this penthouse in Thane, Maharashtra boasts of expansive 10,000 sq ft terrace garden surrounding just 5,000 sq ft of actual livable space… 

Designed by Team Design helmed by principal architect Tasadduq Kherodawala, the fulcrum of the design is the terrace garden that surrounds the home, transforming a mere living space into an oasis of calm.

Situated on the 13th floor of a commercial building, the penthouse sits on a column grid framework and its residential layout posed a challenge. “We got an entire 4 feet height floor built to take in the terrace garden, re-route the services to the duct areas and to avoid any leakages to the floors below,” says Tasadduq.

The layout of this 6-bedroom penthouse along with a large dining, living, study, kitchen, servant quarters etc. is enveloped in greenery. All rooms open up into a wide corridor that overlooks a large garden to one side and a common terrace to the other. Guest bedrooms are discreetly oriented away from household activity.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the entrance corridor provide sweeping views of the terrace beyond. White garden furniture adds a freshness quotient amidst the greens allowing the homeowners to enjoy coffee, conversations or even throw a party.

A neutral palette forms the backdrop for the home, while colour is infused through use of colourful rugs, jaali designs, soft furnishings and the like; warm and ambient lighting bestows a homely feel.

Power efficient LED fixtures, VRV, HVAC equipment, green certified sanitary ware and tap fixtures, besides its naturally green envelope ensure that it is a home that is nature-friendly in every possible way.
