21 Frames is inherent in Tehmi-Terrace, a heritage Portuguese bungalow in Bandra. The concept behind creating 21 Frames is to offer film school students a space that provides them with the exposure of working within the industry and a space to stay. It benefits both students as well as the entertainment industry with the site being the link between the two. The design is inspired by the typical old Portuguese architecture and focuses on bright use of colors, window frames and façade with a contemporary essence.
The ground floor is used as a space for functions and activities related to the shooting, architectural submits and workshops that can generate revenue and promotes the space.
The first floor is for the seven interns with a kitchen, common area, two dorm rooms and washrooms. A wall between the management office and student area is created to provide privacy.
21 Frames is designed with bright colors, finds its balance through different geometric forms created throughout the bungalow. The concept focuses on creating a co-living space which incorporates an ancillary function within the site. The design considers the historical background of the site, it’s topography and its socio-cultural elements and enhances its functionality by adding a contemporary touch to them.
