Crafted with elegance & exuding luxury in each detail. A family which is well renowned and reputed, wanted us to help them start their new journey in their massive 3,000 sqft 5-bedroom apartment in Thane, Mumbai. As social members of the society and active participants in social events and gatherings, the Home Owners wanted their home to depict “luxury and sophistication”.


Thinking outside the box, the young and talented co-founders of The PLOT Studio have created this clean and modern home for its young residents. Arpita Dhokia, Tanvi Shah and Dhwani Kanakia were challenged with the task of designing a home on a tight budget which included them having to work around part elements given by the builder and conceal exposed wires and pipes without compromising on the height of the home, a task they completed with an unmatched finesse.


As you enter the Avani residence, leaves graze your elbows and large wood-trimmed windows offer views of lush foliage. Textured Kota flooring in the living and dining spaces caress your feet, you meander through arches and stumble upon an indoor balcony that overlooks a garden.

The Surat suburb of Vesu is known for many things: its towering residential enclaves, glittering malls, sprawling business parks and quiet, leafy lanes. What it isn’t quite known for is its coastline—or lack thereof. “But when Devang and Richa’s brief called for bold forms and shades of blue, the coastline was the first thing that came to mind,” quip Sagar Rathod, Mansi Rathod and Ritika Uttamchandani, co-founders and principal architects of Surat-based architecture firm Ground Zero who had been approached by Devang and Richa Mehta to construct a tranquil residence far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city.

This 4BHK, 2550-sq-ft apartment had to be transformed into a home for a family of six: a senior couple, a junior couple and the latter’s two young children. The brief wasn’t elaborate, but its pithy content spelt out the entire design direction: a luxury that is sensed rather than overt, and a home with an Indian heart.

Navigating through a complex ensemble of materials and an unusually dynamic colour palette, this Bharuch home finds its coherent voice in the floral upholstery and designer Italian marble.

The preciousness of a gift transcends its physical value; the emotions invested in it make its worth inestimable. This tenth-floor apartment in the leafy seaside precinct of Shivaji Park, Mumbai, was such a token of love, from a brother to his parents and sibling, and, therefore, had to be designed just right.

Mixing the old with the new is more than just a passing trend. There’s no denying the fact that we’ll always have a thing for the past yet crave every creature comfort of the present. In the design world, the neo-traditionalist style speaks to our nostalgia for a time gone by.


The Clients—a police officer and a doctor—wanted to have a home that took their work stress away, and made them feel comfortable and at peace. They realised the answer lay in the ancient Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi—the idea of celebrating things with their natural imperfections, just as nature intended.


“There is too much architecture between me and the view,” said the late legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa, and we at Amoeba Design kept that in mind while designing this house. In fact, it would not be wrong to say that the entire design process for this house was driven by Bawa’s quote


The modern homes of today are every bit in line with design trends, and are also able to adeptly balance aesthetics and functionality. But what they sometimes crave is that touch of traditional Indian elegance that comes from handcrafted furniture, locally sourced materials and ethnic accessories.


“With buying land, or a home, it’s always about falling in love at first sight,” says the homeowner. “I’m a typical guy from Mumbai, and very used to walls,” so when he came upon this plot just about two kilometres from the Ulhas River, he promptly fell in love: “The mango trees, the abundant sunlight and the sound of the river nearby made it happen.”

Overlooking the majestic eastern water front, one can see flamingoes at a distant salt pan in all their glory. A large part of the process of designing this intriguing apartment was about redefining the relation of the interior spaces with the outdoors.

‘Less is More’ was the grounding maxim for the design of this north Bengaluru apartment. This is articulated through modern geometry, natural materiality and a consistent colour palette infused with refreshing indoor greenery. More crucially, the home — aptly called Scandinavian Love — had to embody spirited freedom, and show resilience to the changing needs and aspirations of its occupants.

The term ‘Sthira’ in its origin indicates the state of being still. This project’s design fabric embodies the same sentiment — a series of spaces that fulfill the end-user’s aspiration of unwinding in the company of loved ones in a built volume that is held delicately in the clasps of lushness and architectural expression.

HOMES, celebrate LIFE. They celebrate views, geographies, locales, climates…..The emotion one feels on arrival at the crest of the site is of liberation, an expanse. The same emotion is distilled through the placement of the 4 ton rock that soars on the prong of a 6 meter cantilever……The home predominantly faces the farmlands, a reservoir and the highlands, witness to the most color saturated sunsets.
