Mild steel canopy for Mumbai home

Mumbai-based co_LAB Design Studio has designed 2502 Angelica, a residential apartment spread over 2,200 sq. ft. The client wanted a space that echoed the owner’s personality using neutral tones, clean lines, spacious rooms and abundant light. An uncluttered aesthetic was chosen that did not differentiate between public and private spaces.

The firm had to tackle a pre-existing layout that comprised living spaces, partition walls, spatial barriers and four-and-a-half bedrooms. An open-plan arrangement created flexible spaces that assured natural light and ventilation, along with maintaining simplicity and modernity. A formal living area features a warm grey-beige color palette and linear furniture. A private family lounge has a 4+2 lounge with a chaise arrangement for informal gatherings and karaoke sessions.

A strategically-placed dining area forms the central spot with a customized table and furniture. An exquisite chandelier made from 28 onyx pieces adds to its grandeur, contrasted by the sleek furniture in an open space. A jaali partition with champagne-gold finish separates the public area from the mandir. Smooth edges, finger grooves, profile bars, simple details and a single-colored finish define the kitchen. Modern-day luxury with a walk-in wardrobe and dark bathroom is designed for the master bedroom while floating shelves are used in the study.

An open and feminine design was chosen for the second bedroom, with muted colors and extra storage. The west-facing third bedroom offers beautiful sunset views, and its design includes clean and minimalistic lines and textures. Bi-fold windows on the terrace maintain the harmonious flow between the outdoors and indoors, with a canopy in black powder-coated mild steel columns with precisely-angled fins that provide shading. A teakwood swing hung from the canopy becomes a furniture element and a live green wall becomes an interesting backdrop. A mechanized irrigation system in the vertical garden relives the clients of their duties to water the plants.
