French-Indian fusion for Mumbai apartment
Mumbai-based RSDE has designed the European Majesty, a 4BHK residence spread over 5000 sq. ft. The Jaipur-based client wanted a villa-like ambience in the city, and had the erstwhile 5BHK home converted into a 4BHK apartment that reflected the art and nature of Rajasthan. Coming to the entrance, the ceiling replicates the Sistine Chapel and palatial splendour.
Following a French-Indian fusion, the firm has designed the entrance, living and dining spaces. A glass partition decorated with French architectural details in fibre-reinforced plastic and a sculptural pillar adds privacy between the entrance and living room.
The guest room acts an extension to the living room during parties, with the al fresco painting of a landscape as the backdrop of the dining space. The master bedrooms are planned with walk-in wardrobes, and nature is incorporated in all corners. A life-size tree cast with a glass bench divides the bedroom and bathroom, the latter of which features green walls and chiselled marble steps resembling a natural spring. The mandir is inspired by the Ranakpur temple, along with the appropriate casting, logistics and HVAC.
