Studio Nishita Kamdar Infuses a Mumbai Apartment With Natural Touches
Within a thicket of mangroves in Vikhroli, a northeast suburb of Mumbai, rises an apartment tower, and within that sits the 950-square-foot home of a mother and daughter, designed by Studio Nishita Kamdar. For such a location, explains founder and principal architect Nishita Kamdar, “taking inspiration from nature was inevitable.”
The material palette of the three-bedroom residence tends toward oak, teak, linen, and jute. A bright pink sofa blooms in the living area, atop a hand-dyed rug and live-edge table. A passage secrets a guest bedroom and storage spaces behind paneling as it travels toward the glass screens that announce the olive green kitchen. And walls throughout are painted in a subtle tone of sand. “This makes the space look cozier and larger than it actually is,” says Kamdar. “The sand shade bounces off the yellow sunlight and almost makes the entire space glow.”
