Child-proof design for Mumbai home
Mumbai-based Traansformation Design Studio has designed the Rashmin Residency, a residential project spread over 800 sq. ft. The client wanted a modern and Vaastu-compliant design with maximum storage space to accommodate a couple, two elderly people, and two children.
The design was to be child-proof due to a one-year-old baby, who would injure herself while playing. One enters through the main entrance door in glossy veneer and geometrically-shaped highlighters, with no safety grilles to preserve its beauty. A huge pyramid over the enchanting door is designed as per Vaastu regulations, as it on the southeast.
A smoked teak veneer in the living room extends towards the kitchen wall, niches, and drawers in champagne leafing. A retro-inspired hanging light complements the dining area, with a rose-gold mirror glorifies the back wall in the seating area. The existing seating area converts into a bar with a center table, with wall lighting. The terrace is renovated with artificial grass, which conceals a shoe case unit and a duct window with vintage wall lights. Wood paneling on the balcony ceiling makes for a plush ambiance, and the Brahmasthan has a mural of Lord Shiva.
The kitchen is revamped with ample storage space, with existing windows moved to create extra counter space. A mixture of dark hues with a veneered ceiling and antique fan in a master bedroom, with a sliding wardrobe and plasma unit. A blue bench with a headboard acts as a bed according to Vaastu, with an attached compact washroom using white Staturio tiles, full mirrors, and storage spaces.
The children and mother’s room have a fabric-paneled headboard, back grooves in the wardrobe and ceiling, and cushioning for their safety. Apart from a small temple, handles with smooth edges are used. Dressing units have in-built storage spaces and wardrobes. Crema Vittoria marble is used for the flooring, with fully-motorized curtains, blinds, and gadgets.
