Project description: Living in the maximum city, space is a luxury. The client wanted to explore the idea of converting his 3-bedroom apartment into 2 bedrooms. In the process open up his living room and kitchen to make it lavish. With an entire expanse of the apartment having an unparalleled view of the Arabian Sea. We set out on an unwinding path of design exploration in this lavish 2 bedroom apartment. We present to you the exquisite residence Meander Hūs. The spatial focus being the vastness opening out, a maximal minimalism approach was taken. Merging the third bedroom into the living room, we expanded it; carving out space to let the outdoors permeate inside. Punching a pocket of green into this space we let the space breathe into the outdoors. With ample light being brought in the walls were kept as bare white, a perfect balance to showcase the key elements in a manner of framing them like an intentional contrast. The flooring is a heavy unwinding pattern spread across the large space. Though the living room is large, the entry was to be cordoned off to house the older area of worship. In the process of retaining the visual expanse from the entrance, we created a sinuous curved partition, that not only solved the purpose of hiding the worship area but also became an integral part of the design language in the living room. An opulent matte gold film covering this partition a seemingly subtle yet efficient leather cladding was done. A large circular opening poured into the dining area. The intersection of the spaciousness of minimalism and the personality of maximalism can be seen and experienced in this space. Bold colours, eye-catching patterns, abstract forms, and bespoke furniture pieces juxtaposed over simple shapes and sleek lines. Shedding the excess of the past we redefined the space to create harmonious spaces.
