Casual, creative yet carrying forward his family’s deep-rooted legacy in Indian architecture, Mumbai-based interior designer Rohit Bhoite's exemplary studio atmosphere is a charming concoction of modern-day living with accents of stone and botanicals. A studio that’s the perfect interplay between his father Subhash Bhoite’s legacy as a renowned temple architect and Rohit’s personal character that he has effortlessly brought into his monochromatic design den. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) gets more details about the studio from the designer. Read on:
Rohit approaches creativity with function and sophistication with a belief that the user’s personality must definitely reflect in the atmosphere. True to his ethos, this compact yet exquisitely crafted studio invigorates the curiosity of even the most discerning of artists and artisans.

Filled with simplicity and grace
It took simply a few months to design and execute this space – however it took Rohit and his team, years of experience and sheer hard work to achieve this refined sense of design that is true to his sensibilities and vision. This knowledge in material garnered over the years enabled him to bring together a look that is gilded in simplicity, grace and elegance. The studio is situated on the ground floor with lush green surroundings which casts a natural silhouette into the interiors making it a gratifying setting to work at.
The marble work station desks all round in office express his mindset and fluid thought process. He has imbibed a work culture for his team that’s flexible, forthcoming, positive and productive. Every once in a while you can see the team hurled up in an intense, fun or detailed discussion, working together at the community table with a golden brass ceiling light that truly is the highlight of it all.
A touch of vintage elegance
The furniture has been carefully chosen and designed to make elements of different ages and tastes coexist in a timeless space. Take note of the Chandigarh chairs and the textured white stucco sand-coloured walls and how the slate (kota), black stone with its natural texture cuts through the geometry to bring in symmetry.
The contrasting colours of natural teakwood carved tables with marble table tops serve as the accent to the dark flooring and create a warm feel for the studio simultaneously evoking a shade of vintage. Styled exquisitely with tactile pieces of Indian art, it adds a dramatic essence to the space.
The glass facade and windows, on the other hand, act as an interesting departure and counterpoint to the roughness of textures that brings forth dimensions of transparency and depth.
The doors have been refurbished and reused, salvaged and fitted here from demolished buildings within the old city, literally breathing new life into them.
Designing his own studio space helped Rohit explore how to make a conventional office space truly unconventional. The transformation alludes to a journey through time – remembering the past, living the present, and progressing ahead together, towards a better tomorrow.
