Calm And Composed Green Escape
Shefali Balwani and Robert Verrijt of Architecture Brio craft a tranquil duplex residence in Juhu that lures with its earthy ambience

A former bungalow in an incongruous part of Juhu that’s densely packed with high rises has been redeveloped to include several residences. Among these is a 3,000 sq ft, serene duplex for a couple and their son designed by Shefali Balwani and Robert Verrijt of Architecture Brio to be conspicuous for its nature swamped, urban styled interiors and construction.

The most intrinsic identity of this capacious apartment lies in its fluid connection to the outdoors. “The clients wanted to bring in a setting similar to a typical suburban villa bound by ample greenery into their home,” says Balwani, adding, “So, we built a semi indoor, double heighted courtyard, a rare and refreshing sight in modern apartment buildings as most of them lack outdoor spaces.”
