Great Apartment with Terrific Views, Mumbai, by ZZ Architects_3

This duplex terraced apartment, located in Bandra, is the work of ZZ Architects, Mumbai — an understated, luxurious interior that encompasses both ultra-modern interior design and an open-air approach. Walk through its open plan and you see a lifestyle that moves seamlessly from one element to the next: a sleek kitchen is an angular study in efficiency, from its stainless steel appliances and white counters to a “floating” cooktop island and a handy eat-in nook with scoop-shaped white stools. It in turn segues to a dining room that is only steps — literally — away from the main living room, with low-slung sandy-colored seating and clear glass tables. For quick beverage service, there’s a marble-backed bar area with a scenic view of a grassy courtyard out from floor-to-ceiling glass. And the view is the star here, in more ways than one.

Extending from that grassy courtyard is a rooftop terrace with up-lit trees and greenery along its railing, light that makes the patio stones gleam. Ample seating flanks cone-shaped tables with handy candles for ambient light; the cityscape is just beyond, twinkling in complement to the stars. Indoor lighting is subtle throughout: modern fixtures of chrome and glass, recessed spots, and cleverly placed wall sconces provide illumination without glare. Should the weather not allow rooftop leisure, head to the indoor movie room, with its extra-large theater seats and DVD collection, and the “view” will be just as fine indoors. Finally, when the evening has drawn to a close, the private retreat of a cozy bedroom, with ensuite bath just beyond a golden wall, promises rest and relaxation…as does this entire duplex, in welcoming, superb contemporary style.
