The spaces are meticulously detailed to form a family of details that echo throughout the apartment implying a connection between spaces.

The spine is treated as a single compositional element. The basin is designed as a bespoke object. Wooden fins break the monotony of the solid composition giving the kitchen which is traditionally a private space, a sense of transparency. The coded composition then continues concealing services and storage to connect the private spaces of the apartment behind the doors. The shrine is a take on heritage design, in essence, the tiring ornate the otherwise monumental form of the shrine.
The kitchen is planned to be as open and uncluttered as possible, the shade of the lime plaster is reflected in the choice of quartz and is contrasted by the dark acrylic panels housed under a veneer and stucco finished ceiling.

About the Firm:
Wadhwana Design Studio was established in 2019 by Bhavin Wadhwana. A people-centric philosophy is at the heart of the design process. The studio believes that better buildings make for a better world. A successful building is one that improves daily life for the people who live and work around it. Wadhwana Design Studio has successfully undertaken and completed 2 projects in Mumbai.
As architects, we are involved in projects from start to finish. We usually provide full architectural design services and consultancy services during the construction phase. Our design skills extend beyond mere architectural services. Our work also includes interior design services.
The Wadhwana Design Studio method is wise, stimulated by a love of detail and exactness. It is a game between the simplicity of principle and complexity of detail. Design is not an arbitrary stylistic choice but is always informed by specific parameters on the Site. The emphasis is on “design to build” to ensure, from the start, that every detail works. This approach means clients can be confident that when they are shown renderings, they will represent the final building right through to the tiniest finish.
