• This Shoe Space Becomes The Attraction Of This House In Andheri | 27MM Collaborative

    As we enter through a Victorian main door, the first unit that you come across is the shoe space and it was crucial to make the unit interesting and far away from being generic, so we decided to scoop out a seating space that was functional and aesthetic and made the simple act of wearing footwear interesting.

    Our initial design thoughts were to make the space look lively, comforting and have an admiring aesthetics. In terms of space planning we decided on reducing the living room by a few feet to accommodate a balcony which ended up becoming the favourite spot for the couple.

    We remember the most difficult thing to convince the client was to lose a little storage space and have better aesthetics for this unit. Honestly this shoe space became the attraction for everyone who have visited the house.

    Editor’s Note: “This lively and comforting abode nestled in Andheri commences with a Victorian blue-green duo that slowly mellows down to monochromy. Botanical illustration with the raw touch of wood and terrazzo is a recurring theme throughout the interiors. The textured wall with pretty niches and wall pots creates a serene ambience for the balcony. ” – Gopika Pramod

    This Shoe Space Becomes The Attraction Of This House In Andheri | 27MM Collaborative

    We decided to incorporate an electric fireplace into the TV credenza to create the perfect ambience, catering to the clients’ love for movie nights. Adding a custom-made terrazzo top gave the dining corner the required quirk. The clients themselves were open to bold ideas, so we designed the kitchen with numerous tropical tiles climbing up from the floor to the wall, this made the space look young and playful and not something that you see daily in kitchens.

    We decided to give the guest bedroom an earthy vibe and have only one splash of colour in the otherwise monotone aesthetics. While the Master bedroom had 2 big windows with a good flow of light, we designed the room on clean lines and basic geometry which focused on client’s travel memories.

    Shoe Space

    Living room

    The Living room is classy, sophisticated and has chic elements.

    When entering the house, the first thing one notices is the shoe unit, which features a carved-out seating area within and is finished in P.U. We designed the spatial movement on neat lines and functional calibrations.

    The TV credenza has a backdrop of wooden louvers seamlessly blending the master and guest bedroom doors. We designed the TV credenza to eliminate the boxy, bulky edges by incorporating smooth, curvy corners finished in PU. It furthermore accommodates an electric fireplace, creating the ambiance required for winter nights.

    The Bar unit is a bought out piece from The Bar Collective which blends perfectly with the overall aesthetics of the space. The custom made terrazzo dining top on a branched out dining base adds to the playfulness in the space. We finished the banquette seating with a wooden texture and upholstery featuring a curved base that complements the wall’s arched mouldings.

    Shoe Space


    We designed the kitchen with the ‘Tropical’ concept in mind. A small coffee corner, the tropical hexagonal tiles that grow from the floor to the wall and minimal storage make the kitchen aesthetic and meaningfully functional.

    Shoe Space


    Both the walls of the balcony have an undulated Greek wall texture, one wall has arched wall niches to accommodate art and artifacts while the other wall has a bench seating with planter boxes and colourful wall plate décor. Wooden louvers cover the ceiling. We designed the entire space to imbue the apartment with a holiday vibe.

    Master Bedroom

    Master bedroom is designed keeping client’s travel memories at core. The world map becomes the backdrop to the leather finish headboard. We designed both the dresser table and stepped side table with simple, clean lines, each finished in PU with two different pops of colors.

    The full-height wardrobe reflects the simple and clean look. Hence, incorporating long handles and full-height shutters to enhance the dynamics of the space.

    Guest Bedroom

    Earthy elements take a center stage in the Guest bedroom. The live edge wooden headboard adds to the drama in the space and the full height wardrobe is finished in cane and dark walnut wooden texture. A window ledge seating allows one to peep out of the window on relaxed evenings.

    The Study table is mindfully designed to have a magazine holder while the study top and the side table adds a splash of colour to the otherwise monotone earthy aesthetics.


    Common bathroom was kept in a monotone and was designed on simplistic approach while the master bathroom was design in a subway and terrazzo combination giving it a splash of freshness.
