Court View is an Art Deco style apartment building that was originally known as Rusi Court. It was designed by Maneckji Dalal of Merwanji Bana & Co with consulting architect G. B. Mhatre. Its gorgeous interiors sport silver metal grills as staircase bannisters and colourful terrazzo tile flooring on each floor landing. The first floor of Court View, in focus here, welcomes you with a beautiful customised terrazzo flooring in bold and vibrant colours and clean geometric lines. Notice the alphabet R introduced into this abstract artwork. This personalisation pays an ode to its original owner.

This building 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.
