This Mumbai apartment by We Design Studio is an ideal residence for anyone who truly appreciates the timelessness that can be achieved through a neutral palette with shades of grey, white and black. Located on the 21st floor, with panoramic views of Mahalaxmi Racecourse and the Arabian Sea beyond, the home captures the morning and evening light wonderfully. Featuring Statuario marble surfaces and recycled Burma teak furnishings, one distinct design element of the residence is a set of stained hand-blown glass Bocci lights that hang over the dining table.

Our objective was to create a light, airy and timeless apartment that added value to the clients’ lives through flexible use of space. We limited the material palette to neutral shades of whites, greys and blacks.
The apartment sits on the twenty-first floor of a high-rise residential building in south Mumbai and is oriented to capture a panoramic view of the Mahalaxmi race course and the Arabian Sea beyond to the west and the Mumbai docks to the east. Owing to its orientation, the apartment captures the morning and evening sun brilliantly.
A long, expansive corridor leads to the living-dining space and the two master bedrooms beyond. Large glass doors visually connect the clients’ study and kitchen to the corridor, creating a sense of seamless connectivity. A set of glass sliding doors separate the living area from the guest bedroom and allow for flexible use as a multi-purpose space.
Statuario marble has been used on the floor of the apartment as well as the floor and walls of all the bathrooms. The doors and consoles have been made of old recycled Burma teak and finished with a charcoal linseed oil polish. A set of stained hand-blown glass Bocci lights hang over the dining table. The living and study furniture is from Minotti, Italy.
