Client's brief: To maximise space and utility in a small apartment space.
ABM was asked to design a functional but beautiful show apartment for Rustomjee Seasons - Residential Apartments. The challenge was that the apartment shell was small and space had to be utilized intelligently.
Location: BKC, Mumbai, India
Completed: September 2021

This was done by adding furniture pieces that not only made a statement but allowed for circulation as well as comfort. Like in the living room, the curved sofa acts as an accent piece maximising seats. A swing not only adds an extra seat but creates a casual and relaxed feel. The round dining table, set against a mirrored backdrop, also allows for better circulation. The living and dining space flows into the kitchen, a ribbed glass door and partition makes the room feel almost like one. Rather than using plain paint on the walls and ceiling, a concrete look alike texture has been used to add interest.
Each of the bedrooms is designed to be efficient as well as comfortable. The bed and bedding are soft set against hard surfaces like the wooden floors and translucent grey glass wardrobes. The third bedroom acts as a multipurpose space where the sofa opens up to becomes a bed and a loose cupboard allows the room to double up as a guest room. A desk is provided so that the user can work from home.
The artwork in the apartment follows the theme of ‘Mumbai’ highlighting several architectural spaces around the city to give the user a sense of place.
