When modern requirements meet with Goth philosophy, it delivers an exquisite blend for the society. This very value has been achieved in this beautiful café. This café cum resto resides in the heart of the Ahmedabad, which also happens to be one of the few posh areas of city.
Nicely done landscape, both dry and green ones guides you to the main door of the café. Once you enter the café through wooden door which is having traditional touch, you enter in the wholly different realm of ambience.
Traditional hangouts conclude a warm fiery one bonfire under the black sky. Black sky, dark surrounding and light of the bonfire engender the preeminent ambience and this very thought inspired us to the design the whole café. We were determined to achieve this ambience in the heart of the city-most impossible place to experience this aura. This concept deciphered our key predicament of finding a concept.
Black walls through floor to ceiling and black ceiling separate you from the city’s hustle and bustle but at the same time give you the feeling of grandness. Black walls along with black ceiling replace the dark sky and surrounding while yellow lights replace the light of bonfire. Furniture is carefully designed keeping the requirements of client in mind and every piece of furniture is made of pinewood except chairs. Chairs are of black polymer but the legs are again made of wood and pinewood adds the value to the ambience with its white tone.
The combination of white furniture with dark walls and dark ceiling turned out to be the masterstroke of the whole commission at the end. Cautiously designed furniture allows the customers to sit and hangout for long hours as they enjoy the surrounding and feel relaxed. One can spend some quality time here regardless the age group.
A small area outside the café has sitting arrangement as well with adequately done landscape. Also this was a unique commission in our practice where the requirements of clients kept changing throughout the design period and execution period. Initially the café was supposed to be designed to attract youth of the society and by the end of the design period they wanted to make it designed for all age group.
Fortunately we could able to fulfill them as now customers of all age group visit the café and spend quality time with their loved ones.
