Mumbai-based film company Phantom Films’s has moved into a 4,000 sq. ft. office space which was previously home to a primary school. The workplace is designed by Interior Designer Richa Bahl (Wife of Director Vikas Bahl). It’s a two stored house work space which is a chilled out, relaxed and simple.
Phantoms Films is a collaboration of 4 partners (Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena) who believe in power of creativity than creating money making venture. and is cited as the “director’s company”. They have been growing at a rapid pace – producing, directing some of the biggest movies in India. In March 2015, Reliance Entertainment picked up 50% stake in the company.
The building was earlier occupied by a primary school so it has been redesigned the entire floor plan to accommodate a need for a film production house, which has meeting rooms, edit rooms, open space for teams and directors cabins. Eating is another very important activity of the office so an open kitchen is created on the garden level with a shed, which works as the cafeteria cum working space.
The theme of the office was inspired from basic materials- metal, wood and cement. A combination of brickwork and syporex walls, used metal and wooden staircase has been created and highlighted the two floors with different heritage floorings. The ceiling was either highlighted with mesh or a patch of egg box hollows. To bring in the ‘Phantom’ feel, Richa got an access to the various props seen in the movies made by the production house. Like the beautiful chandelier has been picked from the Bombay Velvet movie which is placed on the second floor lobby. That apart, the office has interesting spaces for the filmmakers to display their prestigious awards and trophies.”
