An Art-Filled Contemporary Executive Apartment in Mumbai by ZZ Architects

An Art Filled Contemporary Executive Apartment in Mumbai 01


The Gupta apartment, on the 31st floor of a luxury building, is the work of ZZ Architects, in response to a client brief that requested “the refinement of a luxury residence in the interior space…to be designed, created, and delivered in a span of four months.” No small feat — but helped along greatly by some wonderful art pieces in the client’s collection; the art could then become a focal point for both the color palette and the general tone of the dwelling. The living room backdrop is a painting of the Final Supper with “South Indian Kathakali Performers” (a limited edition print) by Vivek Vilasini; another important piece is the Velay Shende “Dabbawala” sculpture. But there’s more here than simply a great place to enjoy great art: the home is a work of art in itself.


In the dining room, backlit onyx highlights a custom-made table of marble and synthetic glass, and a hanging chandelier that reflects from the ceiling. Seating is light leather to complement the neutral palette; the foyer is also in braised leather and white Italian marble, while the flooring in Bianco Neve brings in a warm, dark wood accent. Present everywhere in the apartment is blue — in all varieties and shades. You have a blue lounger in the living room, while vivid blue sparkles in a bathroom. Blue also gives a shot of color to the dining area and curtains either side of expansive bedroom windows. Perhaps the blue is a nod to the 360-degree views from this soaring luxury apartment — a fitting backdrop in its own right to a home filled with treasures.
