The 3 bedroom apartment, located in one of the manylavishskyscrapers inGoregaon, is rewarded withimpressive views of the evergreen Aarey grounds set against the background of the city. The apartment isa 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 elementwas introducedin 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 isclad in a combination of matt walnut veneer andglossy black paint that stands out against the burgundy suede backdrop.
The three bedrooms, left primarily bare, featuredistinctive shelving units, which hold both a utilitarian and aesthetic appeal. Whilea minimal see through metal shelving unit, set against the windowcompletes one bedroom, a shelving unit designed with a combination of metal and marble clad surfaces is the focal point of 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.
