Tianu – The Revival Project
Ballard Estate | 4,000 Sq. Ft | 2018
Nestled in a corner, on the ground floor of a Victorian Era building in Ballard Estate, ‘Tianu – The Revival Project’ is an ode to architectural heritage in Mumbai.
Acquired with a large open floor space at ground level and a low height mezzanine that almost touches the ceiling – the space has been restored to its former glory.
The open floor space acts as the main retail space which extends upto the cabin at the far end of the store. A staircase leads upto the mezzanine level which is reserved as the workspace for the in – house design team.
Respecting the textures of exposed brick, existing wood and metal, the introduction of new materials has been kept to a bare minimum.
‘The Revival Project’ speaks of a desire to recover and respect the past.
