Dear IAnDian,

Perception is a very powerful social tool. When used incorrectly, it can even cost a life. Amidst the regular fanfare of an earthy home using the ever-inventive and timeless brick as the ambient factor (courtesy designer Aarti Aggarwal at Knock on Wood); or an apartment turned into a collaborative workspace promoting homely camaraderie and creativity (courtesy Gautam Desai Design); or the nuanced inflections of set design in interior styling of a luxury home in Shanghai (courtesy Qianxun Design), what has really caught our eye this week is the sensitive healthcare facility for overweight adolescents in the city of Maastricht in The Netherlands.

The facility is designed to appear more like an activity centre with nothing clinical about it, putting the young anxious minds at ease almost instantaneously. Said to have accomplished a 70% success rate, the meaningful design underlines (or should we say - read-between-the-lines) the adoption of a healthier lifestyle.

Enjoy the issue.

Dear IAnDian,

We’re back after a much-needed break to a refreshing deluge of projects veering from hard-core architecture and technology to luxury lifestyles. We bring you a little of both this week. Marvelling at the varying degrees and meaning of luxury, we document for you three residential projects – a sprawling farmhouse by Atelier Design N Domain in Vadodara; a spacious 5-BHK by Cluster One Creative Solutions in Nagpur; and a Mumbai apartment by Kavan Shah Design Studio.

On the architecture front, we have Zaha Hadid Architects designing the first-ever free-form high-rise exoskeleton in Macau; Foster and Partners’ new landmark building for Madrid; an open-typology office design and the highlight as we call it (inhouse), the breakthrough in new materials by MVRDV, who have designed a beautiful fa├žade for luxury brand Bulgari.

So, till we put our gear together for another fresh bouquet next week, sit back and enjoy the read and write in to us at editor@indiaartndesign.com

Warmly,

The urge to do something different!

Dear IAnDian,

The urge to do something different consumes us all at some point or the other. So, we bring you that something different in three different scenarios of interiors (two from China) and not to leave fashion behind – you can read about designer Payal Khandwala’s reversible sarees!

The right kind of lighting can play a very significant role in the design and the mood that emanates from its confines. Check out GD Lighting Design’s take on an expansive office in a mixed-use building in Guangzhou, China. Subtlety at its best!

The other project from Guangzhou is an all-black interior envelope that literally creates a variety of moods in different shades of black. Understated and mesmerising; yet, perhaps, a trifle boring in the long run.

On the fashion front, the reversible saree could light up your mood – not to mention – your wardrobe; especially since you get two for the price of one! And, it’s different!

Warmly,

Can we really separate art from design?

Projects
Walk through this New Delhi apartment… only to walk out as an art aficionado…

Dear IAnDian,

There is something about the world of art and design. Look closely and it will show you a glimpse of vulnerability. It may not percolate to the details but, certainly at the macro level, you can sense that little sensitive inkling of perhaps… the desire to conform?! In our stories this week, all are interwoven with an underlying artistic element.

So, you will see Studio Osmosis transform a small space to appear large using simple materials and approach with a touch of whimsy. The same small space concept blends with the whimsical in the single room for two by Studio Ben Allen that ingenuously brings architectural installation and interior design on the same plane.

Whether it is refurbishing a heritage property – the traditional Baserri in Northern Spain, or a luxurious home that exploits the ingenuity of contemporary and traditional artists to create bespoke signature pieces, art is at the heart of design!

Enjoy the issue.

Warmly,
Savitha Hira
