Headed by partners Roozmehr and Cherag Bardolivala, RC Design Studio is an architecture and interior design studio based in Mumbai. The partners are practicing in this field for the past 22 years. They undertake projects pan India and even overseas. “Our motto is to design a space and not merely decorate the space. We follow the adage `Form Follows Function’ and we aim at giving a complete holistic experience to our clients, whose design brief to us is our Bible which we study in depth to create beautiful structures and interior spaces.” say Cherag Bardolivala.

There is no particular trend, the team follows as they strongly believe that every individual is different and a designer should be sensitive enough to mould any style and design sensibility needed for a particular project as per the needs of the client. They have designed residential and commercial buildings throughout Mumbai and have undertaken bespoke interiors throughout the country and even overseas.

The team believes, their work speaks for itself, and the end satisfaction of all their clients is their ultimate goal. They specialise in luxury villas and bungalows and create an entire design experience right from the planning of the villas to the interior and spatial planning to the styling of the spaces once completed.

In Conversation with Society Interiors and Design, the team share their unique style and future vision

What do you think is the most unique thing about your portfolio?

The most unique aspect of the portfolio is that the studio delves into a wide array and variety of projects ranging from commercial, residential, retail, and institutional projects. Each project is handled with the utmost diligence that it is needed from our end to make the design and the project special for the user. We stick to no particular style or genre of design and are versatile design chameleons who adapt to the design brief as specified by the clients.

What is your future vision for your firm?

The future vision for the firm is to build a solid foundation of design, work ethics and principles so that our name is synonymous with unique design concepts integrated with very sound execution skills and timeless design. We want our firm to deliver to clients the exact expectation they have visualized for their projects. Apart from projects, we want to train young designers and architects to make them conscious individuals who are sensitive to the environment and they end up carrying forward the legacy of RC Design Studio.

Unique Apartment

This apartment designed by RC Design Studio is spread over an area of 2,000 sq. ft. Designed for young clients with a young boy who had emphasized in their brief that they wanted a vibrant and colourful interior space that was easy to maintain. The client also wanted to incorporate some elements in gold to enhance the spaces. Since the building was also designed by the team, they turned the plan around and opened up the living space with a study attached to it which doubled up as a guest bedroom. 

The original 4 bedroom apartment was re-planned as a two-bedroom space with abundant storage spaces and a walk-in wardrobe and dressing for the master bedroom. “Vibrant use of colour is done throughout the house with a juxtaposition of textures and materials from our end. All the furniture was customised as per our design specifications. The entrance lobby in white and black chequered marble marks the arrival point for the visitor who then enters a vibrant foyer space with colourful wallpapers and a console table topped by amethyst stone.” Explains Roozmehr Bardolivala. 

The services and storage have been deftly planned and designed in a way that is completely concealed to the eyes of the habitants as well. The entire process was a fun-filled learning experience to use colour in abundance and yet to achieve a space that is easy on the eye and holds an element of surprise and excitement that their clients can enjoy for a long period of time.
