Practice: Serie ArchitectsProject: Tote on the Turf, MumbaiWebsite: www.serie.co.uk
Young and full of energy and ideas, Serie Architects are a truly international practice. With bases in London, Mumbai and Beijing, the firm is headed by Chris Lee and Kapil Gupta, who met at London's Architectural Association. The practice's work ranges from small-scale architecture and interiors, to larger master planning work, while both partners teach in London and India respectively. The Tote on the Turf was Serie's second Mumbai project - after the celebrated Blue Frog Lounge - comprising the renovation of a series of disused buildings within the Mumbai Race Course grounds for deGustibus hospitality business couple Malini and Rahul Akerkar. Inspired by the area's mature Rain Trees, the Tote's interior is ample, elegant and modern - an ideal setting for the Mumbai Wallpaper* HQ and our party, at the immaculately serviced top floor bar.
