Shilpa and Sameer Balvally founded Studio Osmosis in January 2010 with over two decades of architectural, interior design, and planning experience gained from working with customers all around India and internationally. The multidisciplinary practice’s work ethics mix Indian and foreign beliefs, fusing cultures and using the benefits of both systems.

Studio Osmosis strives to strike a delicate balance between youth and experience, as well as innovation and pragmatism. The Studio has always believed in combining these characteristics to create unique and practical designs. The Studio’s designs are found on study and experimentation, with flexibility essential. The focus is always on the project’s location, context, restrictions, and opportunities.

The restaurant has plenty of natural light and is exposed to the central courtyard. The space is built as a relaxed, friendly environment for after-work beverages or weekend gatherings.

MDF is treated with vintage wood stains to create a sophisticated but warm bar element.

The open ceiling and exposed ducting gave the area a rustic feel and ambience.

The classical and contemporary are wedded with components such as leather furniture, texture, and old accents. The use of rich, inviting colours like bottle green and wood panelling on walls reflected the English influence. The exposed brick wall gave the rustic feel, while the chessboard patterned tile added to the English feel.

The area’s warm and ambient light quality sets the tone for the ideal fine-dining experience. Classe’s available material palette, rustic colour scheme, and intriguing design details enhance the eating experience. The restaurant’s major highlight was the private dining room, which overlooked the cooking area and was furnished with stunning statement lighting.

The open ceiling design and brass inlay in the IPS flooring give the place a rustic character. The veneer panelling provides the Private Dining Areas with a warm and rich texture. A beautiful fabric sandwiched glass divider separates the two Private Dining Areas. The restaurant’s built concrete partitions and metal mesh drapes give seclusion to individual tables without physically dividing the room. The restaurant’s light fixtures have been mainly developed and constructed to complement the design components and improve the overall character of the establishment.

The millhouse is a one-of-a-kind environment that integrates various settings and solitude for everybody and has its personality due to the arches. The varied flooring distinguishes the seating arrangement and lends it a rustic vibe. Graffiti on the wall, the colours, and the material differences on the wall break up the monotony and bring individuality to the room. The colours, furnishings, and exposed ac ducts and wires add to the overall atmosphere of the place.

The planning, procurement, schedules, and design were vital, demonstrating that establishing character is all about layers and minutiae. Righteousness, according to Studio Osmosis, is found in contrast. They redesigned a Mumbai apartment’s 1,200-square-foot living room to create discrete lounge and dining sections, each with their palette yet fluidly integrated inside the space. The living room’s design is typical of the 1980s style, with mahogany veneers, post-modern furniture, and a prominently positioned marble temple. The layering not only creates contrast but also knits all of the rooms together, enhancing the space’s aesthetic.

As the name implies, the space primarily draws people’s attention to Indigo, constantly reminding them where they are. The furniture and lighting colors balance and break up the monotony of the area. Various tones of blue accentuate multiple parts of the bar kitchen, such as the bar counter. There are several types of seats available. The panels are not only physically perceptible, but they also add to the users’ privacy; they not only separate but also integrate the area.

Area of Construction: 2000 sq.ft.

Architects in Valladolid - Top 20 Architects in Valladolid - Sheet23
The living room at  Apartment 3 in World Towers_© Studio Osmosis.

The concept included the city’s multi-layered urban surroundings, culture, and colors, its proximity to the sea, and the urban chaos that comes with it. This guided their color and material palette in terms of harmonizing the characteristics of warmth and undertoned elegance while keeping the space’s usefulness. These colors, textures, and materials gradually influence the space’s vibe, making it more welcome and relaxed.

A delicate balance is achieved between adding accent colors and without having the area feel too weird. The metal wall art in the living room was created specifically for the location to complement the intended mood. The secret cabinet temple is quietly represented by the slightly traditional floral-inspired modern layered graphic art printed on the hardwood panels and console, which were produced in collaboration with LivinArt, who also chose matching accents.

Another factor to consider was the building’s unique curve design, which had a continuous stretch of balconies all the way along, providing some of the most fantastic city, sea, and sea-link views.

Overall, the home is a pleasant and just-right amount of luxurious room where one may peacefully bask in the beautiful views and sunsets that high living provides while being grounded.

The workspace at  Happy Loans Fintech_© Studio Osmosis.

‘Happy’ is a new generation financial firm with youthful and energetic employees. Their workplace design needs to represent the corporate philosophies while still being a functional office environment that invokes productivity and efficiency.

The layout provides a range of formal and informal places to accommodate the client’s ideas for this work environment. The workplace comprises various workstation alternatives such as linear workstations, standing desks, stepping chairs, and lounge sections.

Colors and patterns are used to distinguish these places. In contrast, accent colors that represent the company’s branding are used.

This biophilic design brings the outdoors into the workplace and aids stress and mood management.

A prominent wall in the middle section features false arches that run its length.

These arches are designed in a minimalistic style and serve as a backdrop for interactive and changing artwork. The eating area and workstations on the mezzanine spill out into the center green, lively space on the opposite side of the feature wall.

The space can be used as a conversation area or to organize events. The executive cabins are situated to take advantage of these views and enable a pool of natural light to penetrate these rooms.

The lounge area beneath the mezzanine is a vibrant and engaging room that provides a pleasant change of scenery and a comfortable conversation or break-out zone for employees.

The area is lively and appealing, with a splash of color and visuals that mirror the company’s logo.

This luxurious apartment has basic, clean, modern décor in neutral colors.

They picked white marble for the flooring and matched it with a light beige veneer since the client wanted the apartment to be big and cheerful. These two materials serve as the foundation for the house’s ambiance.

The house is adaptable and extensive, with unique design and details for the adolescent kids’ quarters and other auxiliary spaces. Most of the furniture was purchased worldwide, and the remainder was explicitly created and crafted to meet the needs.

The entry lobby den expands to become a closable study and even a guest sleeping option.

the living room in  Apartment 12 at Signia Isles_© Studio Osmosis.

This property came with Bottochino marble flooring and well-designed bathrooms, so they had to get inventive with furniture, color, and upholstery. This project’s customer brief included two parts—his strong belief in Vastu and his desire for a simple, modern, yet elegant house.

The apartment layout has a huge living area in the center and two bedrooms on either side of the living room. All of the rooms face north and west. The moods and tones of the rooms were calculated using the sun route and cosmic references, as well as the room’s purpose and inhabitant. The atmosphere and color tones formed the core of the house’s design philosophy. They had to work backward, focusing on the minor elements first, before looking at the big picture as a group. The materials chosen resonated with the room idea independently.

Every piece of art and music or furniture has its own story, feeling of identity, and vital function to play in making the room entirely.

The light and airy attraction of pastels draw everything out into the open.

And it would be the polar opposite of what one would desire in a regular Mumbai flat.

They used a pastel color palette to create a simple home. Because nature and memories activate our emotions into happiness, picking a hue that matches one happy moment is the most acceptable approach to connect with one house. While the décor and furniture were kept to a minimum, textures, accents, fabrics, and details played an essential role in defining the space’s feel and character.

Elegance is the ability to create an environment that is both sophisticated and simple.

It matured and sophisticated the room while keeping it approachable.

The clients were from the Middle East and had invested in Mumbai to feel at peace throughout their lengthy stays in the city. The driving theme for the project was understated elegance. The house exudes refinement, with rich materials and striking yet modest patterns constructed with a sense of proportion, balance, and minimalist beauty. Every feature and requirement has been considered and created to take the concept to the next level of elegance, practicality, and efficiency. The goal was to elaborate in detail and use materials and textures sophisticatedly while maintaining a tranquil equilibrium. They aimed to create a sense of spaciousness by using a harmonious color scheme of neutral colors complemented with detailed furnishings.

Brewing Company, or BBC for short, was a comprehensive recycling, reuse, and up-cycle initiative. They recovered all of the old stuff. Cataloging, sorting, organizing, and rearranging everything till it satisfies the budget and the overall design idea with a fantastic old vibe.

An open, friendly, and curious entryway with enormous barrel seats was built to attract customers.

With its antique faded appearance, the facade is kept clean with maximum exposure, transmitting casualness and the yearning to see and be seen. Stamped concrete flooring, street lighting, quirky furniture, and decor create a casual yet stylish atmosphere.

The property, located in central Mumbai but mainly in a residential zone, provides a serene location with the Arabian Sea as a backdrop. The house faces outward, framing the vistas from every angle. It is in a high-rise with gorgeous terraces, greenery, and sunsets to enjoy. A complete sanctuary amid the concrete jungle that is Mumbai. The design concept was more architectural, with arching shapes connecting you from one place to the next. The Arches grew into pause spaces, thresholds, and linguistic extensions to join the many areas within the house. The design language was kept simple, using simple colors and shapes.
