Superior design, contemporary aesthetics, sustainable elements, and an eco-friendly approach to construction blend seamlessly in a lavish residential project designed by Mindspace Architects in Bengaluru. AD offers a glimpse into Svamitva Group’s latest project—Svamitva Terravana—homes for your mind, body and soul

The pandemic-induced lockdown that forced us to stay indoors did not just push us to take stock of our health, but also our homes. And amidst all this, we realised that as much as luxury is about owning a home that is opulent and comfortable, it is also about thoughtful interiors, the usage of sustainable materials, and access to nature. And one such fine example is Svamitva Terravana—a project designed by Mindspace Architects, with interiors by Svamitva Architecture Studio in Bengaluru, Karnataka—part of a 21 acre project comprising 155 Villa’s and Row Villa’s.

NELLY SETHNA

Nelly Sethna (1932-1992) is a name we’ve all heard of but not enough has been written about the depth of her contribution and talent. So, we at AD jumped at the opportunity offered by Mumbai-based gallery Chatterjee & Lal, as they planned a retrospective of the artist’s three-decade-long career. Through these images of Sethna’s historical tapestries and a deeply insightful essay by Nancy Adajania, we hope to offer a glimpse of the scale and materiality that Sethna’s art embodied. Her philosophy was drawn partly from Scandinavian modernism, courtesy of her Nordic mentors at the Cranbrook Academy, and the Arts and Crafts lineage of Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, and it all came together in Sethna’s warps and wefts in the context of India. A six-foot textile mobile sculpture made in wool, wire and glittering Lurex; a three-story wall-hanging in the stairwell of the Ford Foundation in Delhi, ceramic murals for the lobby of Joseph Allen Stein’s Express Towers in Bombay—Nelly Sethna’s excellence is present for us to view, touch and marvel at.
