Panoramic views envelope the apartment with an untiring blend of vibrant cityscapes and the vast endless ocean. What surely defines its Indian context is a landmark heritage structure of the Blue dome mosque that dominates some of the most critical views. The apartment was originally a 5 bedroom that was converted to a 3 bedroom with a den and study. The liberty of this spatial decision along with the 14'-0" height ceiling make for an even larger depth of plane. The use of a variety of motorized, sliding, electronic and foldable partitions, transform the spatial experience. A Privilite glass separates one of the guest rooms from the bathroom, where at the flick of a switch the glass changes from opaque to transparent allowing the spaces to unite. The placement of the bar at the edge of the den bordering the balcony to the living room, makes watching the sunset while you sip your martini, simply breathtaking! This has been facilitated by a motorized rolling shutter allowing the bar to be a true indoor, outdoor experience. The intensity of detail has followed through into the kitchen as well, transforming the utilitarian nature of the space into a dramatic experience. Ordinarily an open format kitchen can be made completely private by a remote controlled back painted glass partition that slides down from the overhead cabinetry so effortlessly that it seems to have be stowed away in the ceiling. Not to mention that house is completely automated from its lighting control, curtain control, entertainment system and even drip irrigation for the outdoor plants, all of which can be controlled from a mobile touch screen panel.
