A Huge Icon in the Gaming Industry yet so simple at heart… is what we felt when we met this
client. Tired of globe-trotting, the brief was to get the feel of a “Warm Home” rather than a hotel ambience. We together decided in weaving our client’s brief into a Designer’s innate understated Style of Work. Originally 2 Flats of 3BHK situated in Mumbai, each spread on separate levels were recognized to recreate a “Home”. The home is deliberately planned into two zones – the lower being more open to the guests which has the Living, Dining, Kitchen, One Guest Room and a Home Entertainment Room.
The Upper zone was planned to bring in Complete Privacy consisting of a Parent’s Room, Master Bedroom and the Room for their two little ones. The plan is designed to have an immediate private escape to the upper level without running through the entire home. The carefully picked Colors, Contemporary Style and Art, the handpicked Accessories, etc. all together bring in mixed expressions of Minimal, Stylized, Earthy and Arty feel to the project as a Beautiful Canvas fluidly put together yet worked out to the modest rate.
Personifying our imagination, we used materials like wood that brought warmth; rendering the home with the grey, the white and the clean line of work added to it, kept the canvas look very minimal.
The Entertainment Room or the ‘Den’ is wrapped in a Neutral Grey canvas to hold out its Bold Red Wall against which a finely carved Black Ferrari Emblem acting as a set. A Deep Seating sets up a perfect piece for a Casual Lounging poise comfortably to enjoy three hours movie at a stretch. The walls resonate the thrill of an acoustically treated room to enjoy fine sound.
The master bedroom at the upper zone is a private space, planed in such a way that the den, the study around this space seamlessly connects through glass wall giving the whole space a luxuriously look. Visually, the Space is enjoyed as one whole and privacy comes in simply through automated fabric roman blinds .
Luxury for the master bedroom doesn’t stop at the room it flows into the bathroom which has been planed into three zones bringing in a sense of spacious lifestyle. The outer core contains the Jacuzzi set opposite a mirrored wall which camouflages deep storage delight for the client and also dramatically enhances the perception of space .The inner core has a separate block for the shower and WC.
The library separating the den and study changes appeal from warm wood in the den to contemporary red in the study area. It’s been designed as a set of carefully balanced random niches.
