The inspiration for this restaurant came directly from the site itself. The designers were invited for the site visit while it was under construction. It is located in the IT Park as a part of F and B hub on the ground level. Contrast between modern architecture of to be finished IT park and the raw feel of under construction premises appealed to the designers. Creating interiors around unfinished site and recycling construction material was the key decision. Industrial interior was thus evolved.
This world cuisine restaurant and bar is located in the upcoming high profile locality of Pune that is an IT and automobile hub of western India. The restaurant plays contrast with otherwise modern architecture in and around the vicinity. Designers have been able to recycle most of the construction material and use them to the advantage of getting a feel of masculine raw look of an old industrial premise. Overall ambiance is rustic, raw, minimalistic and casual yet comfortable.
The most important decision was to use existing site in its unfinished state and local construction material to create a complete contrast with the modern architecture in the vicinity. Creating ambiance with a raw look to suit different needs of the patrons and to create suitable moods at different time of the day through natural and artificial light was challenging. Subtle addition of feminine touch to balance otherwise masculine decor needed much attention while designing this restaurant.
