When the family residing in this luxe Mumbai home approached ZZ Architects to do up the interiors of their 5-BHK apartment, they had one request—to have a timeless interior coupled with great planning and execution. After getting their office designed by Krupa Zubin and Zubin Zainuddin, the founders of ZZ Architects, they wanted the duo to transform their home in Prabhadevi as well.
Spread across 5,500-square-feet, the apartment is occupied by a couple, their three kids, and their father. The concept for the interiors was inspired by the clients’ slick lifestyle, where contemporary design meets traditional aesthetics. With sea view on one side, and cityscape on the other, this home had everything working in its favour. “We decided to equip this apartment in a way that it accommodates the variation in lifestyle of every member in the family, yet maintains an essence of grandeur throughout the space,” reveals Krupa.
The architects gave a lot of attention to detail, right from picking the colours and furniture palettes, to the lighting scheme and decor. The home has a strong linear orientation, and the duo used it to display several artistic pieces throughout the space. As you enter the lobby, a statue of lord Ganesha on a custom-made slate welcomes you. The common design element is achieved through the white Statuario marble flooring that is carpeted throughout the home.
The living room being a common space, is drenched in soft hues of grey and beige with a few statement pieces. For instance, the Boccaccio chair by Romeo Sozzi done in brass mesh and a deeper colour lends a cool contrast, while Paresh Maity’s artwork on the wall completes the look of the living room. Another highlight is the tall plant feature that makes it lively and connected to nature.
As you move into the outdoor deck area, the flooring changes from white to a vibrant red mosaic. “The mosaic from Bisazza is the highlight of the balcony. We loved the interplay of pattern and colour and felt that it would add a great design element to the space,” says Zubin.
The skilfully partitioned dining area is kept private for family dinners. It has the kitchen at one end, and a prayer room tucked away on the other. Everything from the artwork on the wall, to the upholstered chairs, has been customised keeping the family’s likes in mind.
This room emanates an elegant vibe with its colour palette and rich furnishings. The Gioconda Shaze lounger and the butterfly armchair by Promemoria do justice to the volume of the room. The master bathroom equally complements the bedroom with its marble-lined finish and stone basin by Enzo Berti for Kreoo.
The two daughters share a bedroom that strikes a balance between femininity and elegance. The Caleidos flooring in black and gold from Sicis is cleverly detailed to complement with the otherwise marble flooring in the room. The brightly coloured pink flamingo wallpaper enhances the dark smoked oak wood bed.
Keeping in mind that he is a writer, the architects designed his bedroom with a writing corner in it. The wardrobe interplaying the carcass wood with fabric creates a soft visual.
With ample space available, the owners converted one of the bedrooms into a multipurpose room that doubles as a home office, reading nook as well as a media and entertainment zone. A whimsical chessboard table welcomes you to the seating area that faces the panelled home theatre. For some quiet time, relax on the cosy, circular chair with interesting artworks as your backdrop.
