The Urban Pad- Mumbai
Big things come in small packages. And in this case, extra small.
We were commissioned to redefine the spatial quality of a 600 sqft home located in the heart of Mumbai. A home that has been standing for over two decades. A home that needed to keep up with the changing requirements of the family.
We stripped down the house to its shell and then began layering it with compact zoning. Shredding the concept of dedicated space for each function, we instead adopted a multi-functional approach that helps adapt each space to various functions over the course of the day. Working on a shoestring budget, we aimed at using reclaimed and local materials largely without comprising comfort and usability. We used all the extra lime plaster pigments available at our studio, to create a stellar ombre wall in the master bedroom !
All along, we stayed true with the ethos of the wonderful residents- a music lover, a sitar player, seafood chef, sports lover and our favorite of all – Lola, the friendly Labrador.
