LUXURY APARTMENT @ LAVELLE ROAD

BANGALORE

This ultra-spacious duplex luxury apartment is an oasis of calm in the midst of the busy central district of Bangalore. The homeowner’s extensive collection of art and artefacts finds its rightful place in a space that is voluminous and suffused with natural light that is enhanced by the abundant use of marble (except for the bedrooms which sport wooden floors), floor-to-ceiling doors, and large-sized windows.

 

The interior sensibility sports a muted palette of white walls and marble floors – a perfect background to set off the vast variety of artworks. The furniture is a mix of customized and original works. The dining table was made of solid seasoned wood with brass inlay and is supported on an MS steel frame and legs in an antique brass coating, while a pair of original Pierre Jeanneret’s Chandigarh chairs adorn the casual living room.

 

The step-out area adjacent to the main living room sports comfortable seating, a bar made in granite, and a home micro-brewery camouflaged within wooden shutters. A pergola in metal and wooden rafters was specially fabricated, as part design and part functional value, allowing creepers to peep through. A powder room is constructed entirely in marble including the washbasin that sits on a corrugated marble column – a piece of art in itself.

 

In the kitchen, the island was created using semi cylindrical marble strips in fluted form, the tabletop jutting out to accommodate the olive and brass high chairs. The marble was specially selected for its overtly visible dark veins contributing to its stunning look.

 

The stairs leading upstairs are constructed in wood with brass inserts and concealed lighting. The frameless glass balustrade is unobtrusive while serving its purpose and gives the impression of cantilevered stairs. It continues on to the landing strip of the upper floor which doubles as an art gallery – one of the several attractions being a series of antique door frames affixed to the ceiling.
