Given the brief for a 150 seater restaurant with the desired ambience, the space made available to design this contemporary Indian restaurant was compact, and profusely littered with columns and services. The design approach was to carve out space in between this chaos. The area was divided by a series of articulated partitions to expand notional space and offer privacy simultaneously. The designed signage was in wood to contrast with the high-tech feel of the office tower. Past the frameless glass door, royally decorated with a massive crystal handle ornamented with flowers on top, the reception is endorsed with a water curtain and a floating chrysanthemum trough, creating a magical ambience of tranquility. A travertine partition acts as screen signage wall. The custom designed travertine walls pick up the beauty of the travertine stone. The ceiling is of a series of varying punched out niches to manoeuvre interstitial spaces between the complex series of ducts and services for the whole building.
