Designed for the staff of a pharmaceutical factory in a remote location of Punjab, Café Zero came into existence as a purely need- based space. With very limited access to eateries and cafes, the workers required a space where they could have their meals in a comfortable atmosphere.
An old factory warehouse was chosen for the purpose of setting up the café; the only challenge was the budget.

Death is unknown and it is final. The rituals of death and the spaces they are conducted in, have a deep significance to the living as well as the dead. For it is through these rituals and these spaces that the rare intersection of life and death takes place, where the living are forced to encounter and contemplate the mortality and fragility of life while simultaneously putting them in touch with the sublime of the absolute. These spaces and rituals are thus, simultaneously for the living and dead, public yet intimately private and personal.

Located in the historic Kala Ghoda district of South Mumbai, The Boston Butt is an all American barbeque diner with a southern soul. For the decor, chef and restaurateur Siddharth Kashyap along with his partners Karna Shinde and Nishant Rao, approached Ar. Reza Kabul who created a confluence of regional styles from the Dixie States into the design. The interior walls of the two-level restaurant set the backdrop for the space in a grungy plastered texture. Photographs, signage and mirror frames from the Prohibition Era accent the bare walls. The bevelled window panes are a manifestation of the late 18th century architecture of the French Quarters in New Orleans. Influenced by the predominant lumber industry in the Southern American States, the use of wood dominates the interior elements of the space such as flooring, seating and accessories. The lower level is designed to host families with its wooden dinner tables and seating, while the upper level hosts the livelier section with the bar and plaid wrapped corner couches. A bright red tractor hood not only adds color to the space but also doubles up as the DJ console. The wall mounted papier-mâché busts of a ram, deer, and boar create a focal point at the upper level. All in all The Boston Butt, the city’s first smokery and charcuterie, aims at delivering the finest food and ambience of the Dixie states!

“Soro”, meaning alcoholic beverage in Konkani is a tavern conceptualised within the ruins of an old corner store. The corner store itself became the protagonist in the story of the bar; the design is centred around the concept of a 1940’s warehouse owned by a local dealer who traded in different merchandise. Thus retaining as much of the original structure as possible became pivotal.

The architecture of the house explores a play of volumes, materials and stark play of light & shadow. The volume blocking is strong & rigid with a further accentuation through contrasting materials – the stunning corten steel with stark whites. Corten steel is used prominently on the façade with seamless joining techniques following a strict geometry. The monotony of white blocks is broken with sharp block patterns created through aluminum grooves.

Educational Institutions across the globe are designed to facilitate the engagement of the young minds by creating interactive environments that are a blend of study, activity and play areas. In alignment with the same ethos, the GD Goenka group’s philosophy is to reinvent the school experience by creating the best physical infrastructure as per global standards, coupled with high quality, well-paidand motivated faculty. A simple and concise design brief was determined- to have class rooms that are equipped with the neoteric style of teaching and content. Unlike the use of traditional systems such as blackboards etc., novel educations tools take precedent in the contemporary education system; multimedia tools such as projectors, and adequate storage space for children to stack their bags, books, classrooms that are highly flexible to support a variety of formal and informal teaching methods etc. The design of the institutional development of a primary school (from kindergarten to class 5) enables these requirements while aiming to provide flexibility of spaces by making the building form itself as a part of the learning experience.

NIIT University Dining Hall Extension project is a seemingly modest 7000sq ft expansion of the existing campus dining facility caching to around 370 students. However, the buildings pivotal location in the master plan, as well as, the act of negotiating the shift in the landform, offered an opportunity to create a multilayered insertion. Set in the hot, arid outpost of Neemrana district, the project also set out to achieve a contemporary yet sustainable expression and one that reinforces a sense of community.

The client wished for an eatery which served vegetarian food in a comfortable informal setting, a setting which feels and is accessible to all cadres of soceity, where the outlook of the project does not depict or is least suggestive of any certain style or form of interiors. The plain contemporary or industrial design approach was too bland for their taste. So, they put forward guidelines where the interiors should be lively and reflective of the brand ideology ; affordable food, experimentation and the interiors would reflect a sense of community, equality and bonhomie.
