Three Season Porch by Marshal Morgan Erb Design Inc.Porch
This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

Freedom in design is every designer’s fantasy, especially if that is the brief from the client. This was our kick start with this huge private terrace; rare in Mumbai suburbs and yet our clients were fortunate enough to own this beautiful space. The very first proposed layout was executed and zoned with a sheltered wooden deck to enjoy the outdoors on drizzly days. The pinstriped awning was cleverly installed to camouflage spikes used to keep pigeons at bay. A faux rustic window sourced from an antique wood mart in ChorBazar was refurbished and incorporated with solid bird cages and hand-painted trees and birds to form a serene perspective. This nearly neutral mix forms a contrasting background to dark rattan cane furniture with block-coloured cushions in ‘Sunbrella Fabrics’ accompanying various hues. Lights are a great way to add that dramatic touch to your space and provide the option to create multiple ambiences. The soft ambient lighting delivers the perfect atmosphere for cozy barbeques. Customized artwork and creative arrangements make this outdoor as warm and comfortable as their plush interiors. A carefully zoned terrace garden is incomplete without plantations which were well thought of considering the humid climate and maintenance aspect for convenience. Low maintenance plants like Bougainvillea, Ivy, White Champa, Adeniums and Ferns were highly recommended by our in-house landscaping expert. This vibrant rooftop is an ideal cocoon in Mumbai’s active hustle!
