BY SCHENELLE DSOUZA AND JADE CRASTO Luxury home designs in metropolitan cities The latest avant garde homes in India’s biggest cities from Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru to Pune Mumbai BNK Group A project partnership with actress/designer Neelam Kothari, BNK Group’s latest project 49 Avigna is a spectacular South Mumbai residence located in the commercial district of Lower Parel. Built for a family of three generations, the home is spread across 3,800 sq. ft. with an additional 1,200 sq. ft. of exterior space in the form of a sweeping deck and a balcony. Although contemporary in its approach, the home beautifully combines an opulent yet elegant persona. The living and dining areas are among the biggest highlights of this home. The dining area features a customised metal screen for added space and privacy, with bright colours splashed in subtle elements, creating a vibrant yet muted colour palette. The family home is designed for three different generations, and each bedroom reflects a different personality, resembling the respective occupants. However, each of them maintains symmetry through the common use of materials and textures that flow into each space, creating a sense of connection and oneness. While inspired by influences that are firmly rooted in both Indian culture and Universal Art Deco styles, this residence showcases both heritage and contemporary craftsmanship at its finest. It has woodwork by local artisans but also modern brass furniture and mirror installations which play with natural light to amplify both the interiors and the stunning vistas of the Mumbai Skyline. While art and colour play a huge role in enlivening the apartment, Neelam Kothari added hints of her jewellery design sensibilities giving the apartment a certain panache.

Straying away from the overly done minimalistic abodes in Mumbai, this home features a warmer palette of colours with hints of gold spread all over in the form of furniture, décor and other embellishments. A golden-hued metal sheet with an embossed water ripple effect creates a sort of canopy welcoming people into the home.
