Farah Ahmed and Dhaval Shellugar of Fadd Studio believe that the one constant ideal of their work should be ‘change’. Aiming to stay clear of any signature style, the creative duo crafts a vibrant apartment in Bengaluru that remains true to their belief of pushing the envelope and embracing new concepts and techniques.

Designed for a young couple, the apartment signals youthful energy. Here, happy splashes of colour are juxtaposed with quirky design interventions. The team experiments with furniture, (a chair attempts to climb up a wall) unique motifs and upcycled articles to create an interesting mélange of design details.

In keeping with the client brief, the apartment is also automated. Almost everything in the home can be controlled with the help of an app on your phone, making this apartment not only refreshing to the eye, but also extremely high-tech. The ‘out-of-the box’ thinking duo manage to deliver a design solution that is a clever combination of creativity and technology - certainly not a fad, and something that is here to stay just like their design studio!

A lot has been written about quirky eating establishments, however at the SodaBottleOpenerWala (a recast version of a ‘Bombay Irani Café’ of yesteryears) you are able to relive a dying legacy. This café, designed by architect Clement DeSylva along with AD Singh and his wife Sabina, pays tribute to the iconic décor and delectable food of an Irani Café.

The design here is old-world and authentic. The walls are lined with vintage photo frames and bric-a-brac, while many of the accessories are salvaged and restored elements sourced from Chor Bazar in Mumbai. The attention to detail is palpable, from tables that have traditional red and white checked tablecloths, to the uniforms for the restaurant staff, right down to the design of the valet ticket.

While a jukebox plays retro music to keep you company, the playful atmosphere is further enhanced with graphics, large menus and signs that read out the house rules: “No laughing loudly. No Singing. No Childish Tantrums.” - diktats you can safely ignore at this charming blast from the past!
