People have become very adventurous in their food choices and experiment with different cuisine styles from across the world. While this in itself is not at all a bad thing, what too much of extraneous influences do is that they overshadow local identity. The decor of this restaurant was inspired by this thought. And therefore the concept of using the natural material from rural North India was adapted for this Punjabi specialty cuisine restaurant.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES :
The challenge of creating a dining experience with an odd shaped premises, time and penny budget forced designers to think lateral. The key decision was to use indigenous and local material keeping in mind the local context of a highway side Indian Dhaba. Overall ambiance is a fusion of earthy elements woven in a contemporary styling. It gives international look to otherwise typical Indian restaurant and encourages even the expacts to step in and experience the North Indian cuisine.
Restaurant decor is a highly challenging area of design. The aesthetics chosen need to appeal to the patrons and stay fresh and interesting over time. The decor was based on the concept of creating a sense of nostalgia in the local patrons minds subtly without letting the cultural overtones completely overpower the space. Therefore the base for the styling was chosen to be contemporary with certain elements lending the nostalgic touches to create an overall delightful fine dining experience.
