Tucked away in a suburb of Mumbai lies an eclectic studio, a wonderful reflection of the principal architects of PS Design. Priyanka and Piyush Mehra’s design philosophy: ‘Life is in the details’ comes through clearly in this space.

Priyanka points to the entrance, saying that it “is brought to life around the concept of wabi sabi, of leaving materials in their natural, unfinished form.”

The studio The original property, a 40-year-old bungalow, was compartmentalised and lacking in texture. It was a challenge for the young designers to transform the place into a canvas that reflects their school of thought.

The design approach This 1,200 sq ft studio is a journey that unfolds into interesting nooks and corners. Walls were knocked down to create a free-flowing space that encourages interaction and design discussion among the creative team. Vintage details and modern pieces together work their magic to create an atelier with a classic contemporary vibe.

Big windows were added to create that extra element of drama. The Material PlayOne sees an effortless marriage of materials in their unfinished form—slate, wood planks, hand plastered walls, brick and terrazzo, all of which come together to form a space that is rustic and natural.

Pops of colour throughout make it lively. Blurring the lines, potted plants infuse the studio with life and elevate it to a tropical backdrop.
