ON THE STANDS September 2014

Motley Mélange
Architect and artist Adriana Yazbek’s two-storey colour-blocked home studio in São Paulo, Brazil is a reflection of her artistic sensibilities and an explosion of hues and motifs, a three dimensional portfolio of her design work.

Talking Volumes
A school in Alter do Chão, Portugal designed by Lisbon-based FAT-Future Thinking Architecture takes advantage of the site’s uneven terrain and fashions two connected volumes to accommodate its functional programme; daring use of colour emphasises the striking composition .

Vivid Imagination
The Fatty Bao, a new addition to Indiranagar, Bengaluru’s exuberant dining-out precinct, introduces the city to yet another new concept: the Asian gastro-bar. Anshu Arora fashioned the space such that every corner is dizzy with colours and patterns.
Turquoise Trail
Mumbai-based Sonal Bhatia Interior Design took up a cookie cutter flat in Powai, Mumbai and transformed it into an intimate space for a young family, using colours, textures and customised furniture as heroic elements of this dramatic stage.

PInside Outside
Conceived by Architect Rahul Mehrotra, a beach-facing weekend house near Chennai, was decorated by Soumya Keshavan, owner of Souk. The finished project presents a laidback, multicultural mix of design influences tied together with a refined sensibility.

Living on the Edge
Belzberg Architects used architectural styles of sunnier climates in the marrow chilling mists of Toronto to rebuild a split level house overlooking a tree-rimmed ravine. The open spaces with total transparency are welcoming and meld elegance and functionality with ease.
