ZZ Archictects: Step Inside A Luxury Mumbai Apartment
Among ZZ Architect’s vast and admirable portfolio there’s a project that stands out: a decadent seaside 3500 square feet apartment with marvellous views that features Maison Valentina as one has never seen it before.
Regarded as one of India’s leading architecture and interior design studios, ZZ Architects, founded by Architects Krupa Zubin and Zubin Zainuddin, have provided extremely high-end and bespoke architectural and interior design services to its clients, always personalizing their experience according to the client’s lifestyle requirements.
One of their magnificent designs is a luxurious apartment in Walkeshwar, India with a spectacular view of the famed Mumbai “Queens Necklace’ coast. Although the overall layout was a typical grid formed apartment layout there was a deliberate attempt to create something out of the ordinary both in terms of layout and then ultimately finishes, producing an eccentric and jaw-dropping final result.
The original apartment did not differ from the anatomy of an ordinary apartment building – but ZZ Architects does not settle for ordinary. Hence, they became set on creating something truly extraordinary both in the layout and ultimate finishing touches, so as to achieve the eclectic final result.
Free-flowing spaces and exploration of curved and sinuous forms create a new spatial typology for apartment design. Special efforts have been made by incorporating large oversized windows with minimum frames to make sure that the view is not obstructed by vertical members of the window frame.
The challenge was to make this apartment feel more intimate. The low ceiling heights and structural beams were to be camouflaged so as to make the divisions feel seamless.
In the living room, is where we can find the pièce de résistance: the Newton Freestanding by Maison Valentina. Placed against a geode wall, the freestanding serves not only as a functional piece that allows for hand-washing right before dinner, but also as a highly decorative piece.
The geometric shapes present in the walls, the harsh lines of the upholstery’s outline, the somewhat art deco inspired design in the floors, mix together with flowy shapes of the center table and floor lamps, creating an almost ethereal aesthetic for the living room. Intimate sofa arrangements ensure a sense of closeness and connect with the guests in the formal living room. A wall faced piano is neatly tucked into the corner of the space.
