In the heart of old town Mumbai, this project is a contemporary home that moulds itself into the shell of a colonial building dating back to the early 1900’s. The structural challenges and repairs presented an opportunity to strip the apartment down to it’s bones and rebuild it using a strategic approach towards spatial planning. Insitu brings in their love for an earthy palette and soft curves to gently amalgamate the large spaces and reinstating a sense of home. However, the built forms of furniture, partitions combined with the added layers of the upholstery and art imbibe the young and modern energy of the homeowner - a bachelor in his late twenties and his family. The project reveals it’s spaces uniquely tailored to each individual - tied together with its common language of soft textures and clean lines and functional forms.
