A Dream House

Zubin Zainuddin


A very Indian decor, wrapped in a contemporary tone seems to be the underlying theme in the luxurious living statement in Mumbai for Hema Malini. The designers Krupa Zubin and Zubin Zainuddin of ZZ Architects have kept the spaces, for the most part, to a palette of brown, accentuated with rich textures, colours and fabrics.
In the foyer, multiple material layers - fragile glass, solid wood panelling and polished stone, meld to create a warm yet chatoyant atmosphere which beckons us to be explorative. Details define the essence of the house, which is a shell of luxury interlaced with a practical functioning design. The house intends to provide not just spaces but experiences by way of the glass cube as dynamic as nature itself, the dull fiery glow of honey onyx lights and speckled waves in the lap of warm luxury.
