Malabar Hill Residence, Mumbai- WE Design Studio 1

This 1800 square foot apartment sits in the heart of a densely wooded area of Malabar Hill, one of the most up-market neighborhoods of Mumbai. The apartment is home to a young couple and their twin infants. The design, placement of furniture and selection of materials revolve around the perfectly framed views of the temple trees outside each room.

The clean, bold lines of each space and the furniture pieces within complement the sculptural quality of the temple trees outside. The minimal interior of the apartment features a basic palette of white walls, floor and ceilings that aim at providing a calm and comfortable environment for its inhabitants. The key feature of the apartment is a home-study that can be combined with the living and dining area to create a sense of seamlessness between the two spaces. The study also doubles up as a guest bedroom, if required.

Architecture Education - Don't be an architect

2225 Reasons to not take Architecture – Pulkit Soni

Choosing architecture as the course of study has been the new hippie in the last 5-7 years in India. It is another 5-7 years that it is going to retain that hippie status before being talked about only the face value such as infrastructure deficit in India, rising housing needs etc. Over 300 institutions are offering architectural education in India. The sad thing about this course is that in a nation where people are taught only to dream about the IITs and IIMs and the AIIMS, architecture is yet to find mainstream buyers, i.e the cream is continuing to look into engineering and management courses for education and profession.
