e it a home or of­fice, if the space is de­signed keep­ing in mind the pref­er­ences of par­tic­u­lar client and user, it would bring out easy flow of work and con­nec­tiv­ity. This is what Ar. An­jali Rawat, Prin­ci­pal Ar­chi­tect of Mum­bai-based award win­ning firm An­jali Rawat Ar­chi­tects be­lieves. Es­tab­lished in 2010, this multi-dis­ci­plinary bou­tique de­sign stu­dio has over the years de­signed var­i­ous time­less projects like high-rise apart­ments, large-scale res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial in­te­ri­ors, and in­de­pen­dent vil­las. The team al­ways strives to pro­vide their clients with ex­tra­or­di­nary re­sults. They are known for de­sign­ing spa­ces that nur­ture and in­spire peo­ple.

Most of her deisgn em­body prin­ci­ples of cli­mate-con­scious ar­chi­tec­ture, which goes be­yond aes­thet­ics and adapt build­ing to their lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.

We have picked some of her projects that will give in­sight into her unique de­sign lan­guage.

The un­ob­structed view of the Ara­bian Sea, re­mains as the fo­cal part of de­sign, which is viewed from the liv­ing and din­ing room. The liv­ing room has a state-of-the-art fur­ni­ture and rug to make the space look dra­matic The din­ing area and the kitchen are di­vided with a mir­ror and rose gold steel jaali with unique pat­terns. The nar­row pas­sage in the apart­ment is well dec­o­rated with mir­ror, paint­ings and grid pat­terns on ve­neer on the op­po­site wall to break the monotony of the small space. The func­tional yet min­i­mal­is­ti­cally de­signed bed­rooms are a class-apart.

The mas­ter bed­room is done-up with a white palette, with a ve­neer study ta­ble and turquoise side-ta­ble adding more glam. The wall­pa­per BE­HIND THE HEAD­BOARD GETS ITS PROMI­NENCE FROM THE LIGHT­ING fiX­TURES.

The son’s bed room on the other hand has a yel­low wall to give a vi­brant ap­peal. The colour is com­ple­mented with dark grey to make it look more en­er­getic.

As the client asked for com­fort yet spa­cious space, we need to man­i­fest the de­sign be­tween colours and co­or­di­na­tion of ma­te­rial tex­ture, fur­ni­ture, light­ing and am­ple day­light, which were all taken care of.”

The liv­ing and din­ing area fea­tures com­bi­na­tions that are very rare. The Ital­ian mar­ble din­ing ta­ble is ac­cen­tu­ated with rus­tic cane chairs, against the back­drop of ex­posed brick wall and can­tilevered stair­case. The liv­ing room next to the din­ing has a wooden trunk cen­tre ta­ble kept amongst the con­tem­po­rary chic sofa.

All the bed­rooms have stark white walls with taupe tones that are ac­cen­tu­ated with warm lights. The kitchen cab­i­nets are fin­ished in black back-painted glass with the lower shut­ters in ve­neer giv­ing a clut­ter-free and func­tional look. The home the­ater has black gran­ite fea­ture wall, which holds the frame­less TV.
