Sophisticated Penthouse in Mumbai: Avarsekar Residence by ZZ Architects

Sophisticated Penthouse in Mumbai Avarsekar Residence by ZZ Architects_1

This lavish three-level penthouse is a custom design for an international executive, by ZZ Architects of Mumbai, India. Using an extensive array of materials, it projects a calm, classic ambience while at the same time being cutting-edge contemporary in tone. Note the fun juxtaposition of the antique photograph with an ultramodern piece of clear sculpture — on the same coffee table in the living room. Sand-colored seating has black and silver accent pillows, some with leaf patterns that play off the design of the sheer curtain over the full-length windows. Closed against the midday sun, these curtains open to reveal a panoramic view of the Arabian Sea from the premises — a sight not to be missed. But there are also plenty of interior details to provide visual interest.

Slatted deep wood-grain toned paneling on the hallway contrasts with travertine floors in a pale sand shade; recessed lighting makes the corridor appear longer and more spacious. Framed art provides a soft, subtle injection of color (note the bright striped piece behind the entertainment center). A cool purple is the dominant shade in a bedroom, set off with luxuriant padded white headboard, pillows, and a white work center with matching sleek chair; in the media nook, a warm red couch and honey-toned wood floor create a cozy, inviting mood. Finally, the bathroom is wrapped in subtly flecked marble and fitted with contemporary white oval sinks and fixtures for a clean, spare look. With top-of-the-line materials and craftsmanship, this residence speaks “luxury” in any language — from ZZ Architects to the world.
