Archival Image of Court View

Art Deco Mumbai

Art Deco Mumbai
Mumbai, India

An archival image of Court View is situated on Maharshi Karve Road along Oval Maidan in the Churchgate neighbourhood of South Mumbai. This Art Deco building was previously known as Rusi Court, predominently designed by M. N. Dalal in cooperation with Merwanji, Bana & Co with G. B. Mhatre as consulting architect. G.B. was awarded the work to redesign the elevation of Court View after the construction work had begun. Notice the use of geometric balconies at every floor, continuous eyebrows with red highlights and maroon bands that help accentuate the building's height and create a minimalistic yet pleasing facade. One of its most prominent features is the relief work resembling a frozen fountain, situated above the entrance of the building.

This heritage property is a part of 'The Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai', a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was inscribed to the list on June 30, 2018.
