The project is an apartment on 31 st floor which is a part of a residential development in Goregaon, Mumbai’s modern suburb. This development called ‘the Oberoi Garden City’, abutting the Arey green cover, was created with a vision to provide a holistic living experience to its residents. Today, it fulfils its residents’ live, work, play and other lifestyle needs all in the same location, a unique feature that very few in Mumbai enjoy.
Old design colleagues came together to design this apartment from first principles, by beginning on a clean slate—an open plan— which meant removing of all the non-structural walls from the space to get a free plan layout intended to customize the space exactly as per the need and usage of its inhabitants– a young couple, professionals practicing law and design!
Formerly planned as a three-bedroom apartment, an entire bedroom was collapsed as a part of the living room to accentuate the expanse of this public space– the most used area in the apartment. A sliding glass partition along the channels enabled one to make this space versatile and convertible into a private one if ever needed.
Due to its vantage, the view was the hero of this project and every space respected and aligned itself to it. The living and dining spaces have a full-scale view of the green Aarey colony while the bedrooms have urban and semi-urban views.
