Located in central Mumbai, Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop’s six story building, featuring two stories per apartment, contrasts standard housing in India by attending to similar spaces with diverse ideas. The SDM Apartment in houses uniquely designed rooms which blend seamlessly with the overall space.
The centerpiece of the apartment is the staircase, a striking work of art in itself. Visible from nearly every public area of the apartment the staircase draws its viewers in as it bathed with natural light. The bulk of the staircase is made up of flat horizontal boards that curve up from the first floor to the second, creating steps on both levels from minimal beams and vertical portions providing a guardrail or seating support . The unique segmented design of the staircase is replicated in many works throughout the apartment such as the blinds in the bedroom.
The main living area of the apartment is furnished with solid-colored fixtures against flooring reminiscent of a Jackson Pollock painting. The furniture arranged symmetrically, begs to be filled with guests and one entire wall is lined with bookshelves. The area similar to the staircase, is illuminated by natural light emanating from a large window in the backdrop. The ceiling features wave-like beams that fluctuate from its surface and house lights within. Simple, elegant and well crafted.
