Overlooking the majestic eastern water front, you can see the link flamingoes at a distant salt pan in all their glory. A large part of the process of designing the apartment was about redefining the relation of the interior spaces with the outdoors. To create spaces and environments that appreciate the outdoors. The planning of Urban grove is free flowing and open in nature, such that the spaces flow living to dining to the kitchen without any walls or partitions giving it a seamless feel.
We were inspired by the enthusiasm and love that our client had for her gorgeous plants that she had cared for for almost 4 years. That’s when we decided them to be a center stage for the apartment and our design would just imbibe those values and highlight them furthermore. One of the ideologies was common while designing was to keep the feel as serene and simple as possible.
The shell can be described as minimal with a rustic feel. The rustic leather finish travertine wall gives the whole space a character that imbibes our clients love for nature and outdoors.The huge balconies welcome in the view of eastern waterfront and lush green mangroves making the inside outside connect so very seamless. This becomes a space to ponder and look out. This travertine contrasts with the teak. The materiality of these two elements is the highlight of the house. We can see the material consistency of this combination flowing even in the bedroom.
