Luxury Mumbai home overlooking the Indian Ocean
Mumbai-based architectural practice, Shroffleon, has designed the Mumbai Residence project. Completed in 2014, the luxury family home is located in Mumbai, home to Bollywood and India’s cultural capital of cool.
The chic home, situated on a heavily contoured site boasts fabulous views overlooking the Indian Ocean and beyond.
The interior design project involved primarily the refurbishment of an existing bungalow with a major emphasis on the landscaping.
According to the architects: “This home includes three bedroom suites, and finds focus in the creation of multiple outdoor zones of relaxation and entertainment, each with their own character, ambiance and usage protocol.
“The opening up of the existing fenestration, gives off the feeling of complete openness, hinting at a redefined programmatic flow.
“With the enhancement of the swimming pool as the new heart of the home, each of the spaces, open onto the deck area, forging a blurring of the boundary between the insides and the outside. The creation of spatial pockets within the 100 foot long deck allows for micro zones though the placements of sun loungers, day beds, swings and planters.
“An extension of this deck, taking advantage of the existing site geography creates an open pavilion, that sets focus on the linearity of the white pool, and a viewing deck opening into the water-body and beyond.
“A breakfast patio in the entrance courtyard on the opposite side to the pool connects the front to the primary living area though the living room, with the three merging seamlessly into each other upon the opening up of the doors.
“A corten steel feature wall in conjunction with an existing stone wall forms a semi private enclosure outside the gaddie room, for smaller gatherings, with an ambiance enhanced by the sound of water.
“While the second home completely transforms at sundown, with the lighting used to both define, and enhance, each of the different zones; the pool takes on a dimension of its own, with close to a 1000 fibre optic lights, selectively illuminating ever facets of the pool, revealing its inner joinery.”
