Home on Marine Drive
2017 – 2019
Overlooking the elegant, sweeping curve and historic Art Deco buildings of the Queen’s Necklace in South Mumbai, this home on Marine Drive was imagined and created for a young, cosmopolitan, and growing family. The eclectic range of materials, details, and furniture reflect not only the international origins of the family but also pay homage to the multicultural heritage of the neighborhood in which the home sits.
Arranged around an open plan public area on the lower level and the more private family and sleeping spaces on the floor above, the multilevel home is the combination of two previously separate apartments. Carefully crafted in collaboration with local artisans, the dwelling is constructed using a blend of regionally sourced materials and those collected from abroad. This unique combination of colors, styles, and architectural elements seamlessly blend into the fabric of the historic building while reconfiguring the spaces to facilitate both a contemporary lifestyle and expression.
