Duality in design!


 
Home Improvement,Business,Construction
Leveraging a multi-functional approach, Ar. Gautam Shewa of Mdeco chisels out a convertible space that serves both, as an office and apartment in an eclectic Mumbai suburb…

When a single space acts as home and office, design becomes a vital differentiator. Gautam ingeniously proves that multifunctionality can infuse the right ambience in a space, irrespective.

Reflecting a duality of function, this space for a young lawyer exudes a warm and comfortable environment that would instantly put his clients at ease; also, uncompromisingly reflect the personal charm of his home and hearth. Employing versatility in every facet, the 2 BHK apartment has its living room serve as the office reception-cum-waiting by day and homely bar and recreational space by night; similarly, the study performs four functions: bedroom, yoga area, conference and mini home theatre. A folding bed and wheel-away table that tucks under a cantilevered wooden counter help in transforming the space. A large roll-up screen mounted at the wide windows is rolled down to provide a privy home theatre experience.

In the bedroom, a full-length mirror is used as one part of the wardrobe shutter, whilst a table can be pulled out from under the bed turning the tiny space in front, into a dresser. In another instance, the reading table in the living can be wheeled next to the sofa (in the living room) changing the space into a reception-cum-waiting area. Interestingly, a bar cabinet is concealed behind the TV panel, but holds its own during an evening soiree; a side table (in the bedroom) can be dropped down to flatten out, when not in use - working as a space-saving idea. “Use of nuts, bolts and screw system throughout the project allows it to be completely dismantled and reinstalled in a new set-up without any breakage,” explains Gautam, highlighting the key design feature.

The ambience too is carefully crafted with a duality of purpose. Floor-to-ceiling windows leading to a balcony with clear glass railing brings greenery and the outdoors inside; while use of an earthy palette such as grey, ochre, white and brown coupled with ample natural daylight lends the space a serene and comfortable feel.

Carefully chosen materiality grounds the project with oodles of character: veneers impart a rich warm textured look; walls are left plain white with few areas highlighted in wallpaper. Lighting is treated with due diligence to create different moods – natural light, spots and indirect lighting plays a major role during the day, whilst LEDs, lamps, pendants and back-lit sources create an intimate mood.

Finally, not only does the project fulfill the client’s requirements, but also provides a surfeit of multi-functionality by way of design, furniture and spaces given the tight volume -- so endemic in a metropolis like Mumbai, where the cost of realty is sky-rocketing and apartment sizes shrinking. check out the visuals on indiaartndesign.com
