Luxury Apartment facing the Queen’s Necklace
Among ZZ Architect’s vast and admirable portfolio there’s a project that stands out: a decadent seaside 3500 square feet apartment with marvellous views that features Maison Valentina as one has never seen it before.
Regarded as one of India’s leading architecture and interior design studios, ZZ Architects, founded by Architects Krupa Zubin and Zubin Zainuddin, have provided extremely high-end and bespoke architectural and interior design services to its clients, always personalizing their experience according to the client’s lifestyle requirements.
In this is a unique sea facing apartment with a spectacular view of the famed Mumbai ‘Queens Necklace’ coast, a bespoke Manooi chandelier, a VOILE D cluster got place in the master bedroom.
The VOILE D is a special version of our VOILE crystal chandelier, made of brass chain. Its harmonious shape reminds us of the waves of the ocean or the sea. With its LED light source, it is the focal point of the interior.
The Master Bedroom
The view has been strategically considered while creating the luxurious master bedroom. Notice the defragmentation of the typical bathroom layout by positioning the shower cubicle as a cast glass finished enclosure almost in the middle of the space. The main master bed from ‘Roberto Cavalli’ takes centre stage and is aligned perfectly to reveal a stunning view of the sea and the skyline across. Every individual piece of activity is planned in the master bedroom suite keeping in mind an experience and comfort oriented point of view.
This typical four bedroom apartment has been totally redesigned to ensure that the space feels like a flowing volume. The elegant contrast of material finishes and their emotive response as one traverses through the space is what completes the home.
Location of the project – Walkeshwar, Mumbai
Area – 3500 sq.ft.
Unique Features of the Project
A vivid colorfull interior design by Rakesh Ambasana & Associates, in Ajmer, India.
In the sitting-room area an ARTIKOI crystal chandelier got place next to Roberto Cavalli Home Interiors and Fendi furnitures, in matching colors with the inteiror.
Artikoi is the product of a playful encounter between architectural austerity and sparkling Manooi style, blending the timeless shape of Artica with the rectangle, the purest of architectural forms.
The place for arrivals and departures, hallways and lobbys are one of the most high traffic areas in the home.
KOI, in a sense it’s a classic-but-still-contemporary shape in the Manooi range. KOI seduces with its elegant simplicity and is thus the preferred choice for representative spaces such as embassies or hotel lobbies. Its versatility makes it adaptable to all kinds of environments and it provides a well-defined geometrical light that is easier to plan for.

The headquarters of luxury light fixture manufacturer Manooi is a very special place on its own merits. If the unusual exterior of the Neuschlosz Villa continuously surprises visitors as they enter through its massive, heavy wooden door which opens up to reveal an archaic wooden staircase, they are stunned when they look up to see the opulent, custom-sized OZERO crystal chandelier showing off its dramatic size and appearance.
It’s a fixture with a reputable pedigree. The 180 cm-wide chandelier was specially designed and manufactured for the 2013 EUROLUCE exhibition in Milan. At the 52nd edition of the exhibition where it made its debut, more than 2,500 Italian and foreign exhibitors and thousands of visitors had the chance to see this magnificent sparkling giant for the first time.
Ozero is a stylish combination of classic and contemporary design, combining the popular Iceberg shape full of crystals with a contemporary, streamlined and curved upper hemisphere.
Embellish your interior with a mass of sparkling crystal
Manooi is inspired by the natural light all around us. Our aim in the design and manufacture of our custom-made crystal chandeliers is to re-create harmonious, natural light within individual homes and public buildings.
Great lighting creates depth and height, not to mention cosy spots, and draws attention to the most impressive areas of your space. It’s all about the balance of light and shade and bringing new energy to an interior.
An architect or interior designer may just draw a grid of downlights into their plans for your interior, which won’t do justice to the design. Calling in lighting experts to work in harmony with your interior designer or architect will maximise the impact of your space.
Decorative lighting does more than just adding attractive objects to a room. A crystal pendant lamp easily can stand out as the crown jewel of your interior with colours that match those of the interior, or with its shape and style.
Manooi crystal chandeliers can be suspended either as a single pendant lamps or may be organised in clusters for a totally unique crystal chandelier composition.
Our RIO crystal chandelier is a great example to be installed on its own or in different sized clusters. It combines asymmetry with the perfect regularity of a circle. It is the chandelier of choice for those wishing for a twist on the symmetrical simplicity of Manooi’s LOOOP model.
When your space requires a custom lighting design, we tailor our fixtures to fulfil your needs and wishes. We also offer the possibility to re-customize our standard models to suit unique interiors.
Every one of our bespoke chandeliers is the fruit of a common planning process by our team of developers to provide illumination to your interior that is both exclusive and personal.
A castle perched high atop a hill in the middle of Salzburg, Austria, the Hotel Schloss Mönchstein is an opulent, classic hotel that delivers old-world elegance interwoven with outstanding, modern standards of design and comfort. Offering a wide range of elegantly furnished rooms that are intimate, inviting spaces offering breathtaking views of the city, the resort complex includes an exclusive lounge and restaurant housed in a glass dome, a spa area including a sauna and steam bath, and ample grounds which provide an impeccable setting for weddings or other special events.
In the context of such classic settings, it’s no coincidence that Manooi’s modern-yet-elegant LOOOP models were chosen to illuminate the castle hotel’s main dining area, Restaurant Schloss Mönchstein, where guests bask in classy, tasteful surroundings while enjoying the delights of the Michelin-star cuisine they are served. Interstellar in its appearance, the several LOOOP models suspended within the Restaurant providing a dazzling luminescence to the eatery’s atmosphere, foreshadowing what diners can expect there: an exquisite culinary experience.

SAARI MOIS ROOFTOP VILLA BY ARCHITECT SVETOZAR ANDREEV
We are proud to be present in the luxurious villa project designed by architect Svetozar Andreev and Hotei Russia.
This special project includes a bespoke MOHA chandeliers, which looks stuning in the modern interior of a penthouse in St. Petersburg and a contemporary desing crystal chandelier, WISSH.
The airy and graceful design of WISSH, emphasized by the refined black structure with the sparkling rays of crystal shinning. It brings dynamism and style into a contemporary interior and as a dynamic and magnificent piece of architecture, WISSH needs space to live what it get in the Saari Mois villa.
Saari Mois (the Sarskaya Grange) is the name of an ancient estate, gifted by Peter the Great to the future empress Catherine I in 1710, on which by the time of Catherine II had been built one of Europe’s most beautiful park residences of the Baroque period – Tsarskoe Selo. Its proximity and spectacular views onto the palace park were the inspiration for the name of this unique project.
The Saari Mois rooftop villa project came about as a result of a simple request from a client to renovate two separate apartments on the top floor of a residential building.
The architect behind the project, Svetozar Andreev, proposed a left-field solution – to knock through part of the dividing walls and ceilings, thereby combining the two apartments into a single space, and to add a second floor featuring living areas and terraces on the roof of the building. As a result, a non-standard architectural solution made it possible to unlock additional space, converting two small separate apartments into a luxurious two-storey Mediterranean-style villa, with spacious terraces and panoramic windows.
Thanks to this arrangement, the project’s floorplan area has been more than doubled. A large communal area, with a living room, kitchen-dining room, and dressing rooms has been designed for the ground floor, while the private area on the same floor features a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room, as well as a nursery. The communal and private areas are linked by a wide 20 metre long gallery with a cantilever staircase to the second floor, filled with natural light from a glazed skylight. The upper level is completely given over to a large recreation area, with its own bar and kitchen, a large chillout zone featuring a two-sided fireplace to heat both the interior and exterior areas, and also a home spa-centre with a mini-pool and open terraces furnished in the style of outdoor living rooms, complete with a bar, sun-loungers and outdoor showers. The upper floor also features automatic panoramic sliding glass doors, to enable the outdoor terraces and indoor areas to be easily combined during the warmer months of the year.
A generous amount of non-standard furnishings was also employed by Svetozar Andreev for the project, including a console kitchen, along with a dining table based on the original Stealth series, which frequently feature in Andreev’s projects and boast a single support point. All of the Stealth-series furnishings are finished in Corian® artificial stone. Large central architectural feature pieces were also made from the same polished, black-brown material, into which have been integrated a spacious living area with sofas, a media centre, a fireplace and a lighting system, as well as a sleeping area with a built-in bed, storage system, adjustable lighting, and a built-in sound system. The elegant cantilever staircase in the central gallery is also made from Corian®.
The understated luxury of the solid walls polished to a mirror-like finish, along with levelled floors faced with gloss-laquered parquet, in tactile contrast to the carpeted areas with the colour and texture of a sandy beach, the stone pebbles in the bathrooms and the large amount of tropical greenery, the linear architectural lighting and large sliding glass partitions, the exclusive original furnishings, the non-standard open-plan layout and the imposing energetic architectural forms combine to create an unusual, yet at the same time easygoing and comfortable atmosphere, something which is characteristic of all of Svetozar Andreev’s villa and penthouse projects, and which makes them unique and instantly recognisable.
