Aces of Space Design Awards: Interior Design - Washroom
While Jay Shah of Ravid & Co. won for the powder room at Atlas Apartment in Mumbai, Sumessh Menon of Sumessh Menon Associates won for the bathrooms at 145 Kamala Mills in Lower Parel, Mumbai
Washrooms are a very integral part of our daily routines and, hence, the design has to be optimised to suit the functionality of the space while simultaneously providing the requisite comfort to the users...
Winner Jay Shah, Ravid & Co.
Project - Powder Room, Atlas Apartment, Mumbai
Considering the space constraints in Mumbai, this tiny toilet was converted into a plush powder room. With smart sense of decor, the use of dark colours enhance the aesthetics of a rather tiny space. Carefully handcrafted organic fixtures and sanitaryware are used alongside the black marble cladding, which strikes a fine balance with the subtle champagne gold textured ceiling.
The smart placement of mirrors and golden inserts ensures that the black, white and gold remain in unison throughout the uber smart luxury design with metal inlays forming the highlighters and creating an impact as soon as one enters the powder room.
Winner - Sumessh Menon, Sumessh Menon Associates
Project - 145 Kamala Mills, Lower Parel, Mumbai
Fusing contemporary design vibes with a mix of quirky and classical design elements, is what the washroom of 145 Kamala Mills is all about. Starting from the entrance door of the washroom lobby that has a geometric patterned door with coloured glass elements in it, right down to the wooden slatted ceiling and chevron wooden flooring as well as the peppy blue laminate finish washroom doors with 'gents' and 'ladies' plaques placed on the doors.
Each ladies washroom is lined in tiles with round frames of classical style monochrome paintings from ceiling to floor, and the flooring is done in textured blue tiles. In keeping with the trend, there is one unisex washroom provided with one gents alone and two ladies' washrooms - each of them following the same quirky and upbeat design pattern with printed portrait tiles, ribbed ceiling and blue floors.
