R city mall, Ghatkopar (W)

With their predominant food type being North Indian Mughlai, the new interior theme was narrowed down to and defined as 'a contemporary take on Mughal art and architecture'. Thus, elements such as arches, domes, water features, intricate flooring patterns, rich motifs in upholstery, jaali’s etc. were extrapolated, stripped down and reassembled to revive the sublimity of timeless objects of the past. Attention to detail was given via customising wrought-iron filigree type lamps, table inlay motifs and relief panels on walls by using specially treated stucco textures. By designing a series of custom made high arches in pure wood finished in dull gold, we introduced symmetry, scale and a sense of grandeur in each restaurant while at the same time maintaining a contemporary aesthetic that was not grandiose.

Infinity 2 Mall, Malad (W)

November 2011

The project brief for this Quick-Service format restaurant was simple: 'To provide maximum visibility, coverage and functionality in a minimum area. 'With most outlets being situated within mall food courts; the design had to adhere to strict service-related norms while retaining a distinct interior to help promote the new brand's identity. The design process included an in-depth study of colour palettes to maximize visual connectivity with the consumer. Based on detailed research and actual surveys, the resultant design theme revealed itself as a youthful, spunky and vibrant space. Keeping in mind the nascent nature of the brand, an open plan layout was chosen which enabled the consumer to view his meal being prepared live, thus engaging him in the food preparation and consumption process.

studio for enviroment architecture & design

Where design caters to aesthetic and the environment, Founded in 2011, SEAD believes in providing designs that are forward in outlook to start a conversation for a better tomorrow. At the helm are architects Priyank Mehta and Namrata Shah, who bring their own diverse sensibilities to achieving this end. Their sense of design is rooted in the idea of innovation through research, and that every project must be a step in new direction. To them stagnation is the death of creativity. Although still in its infancy, SEAD has already created a niche for itself in the hospitality industry. This can only be the promise of better things to come.

Simplicity is more complex to achieve. That simple thought gives us a clear insight into the mind and design sense of Priyank Mehta. Although a firm believer in ‘less is more’; his eye for every small detail of the design ensures that every project is handled with a high level of professionalism and care. He enjoys travelling and allows his designs to be influenced by the cultures he has seen and experienced.

An architect with a keen insight into a range of fields, from urban planning to interior architecture, the one idea that drives her is sustainable design. With that in mind, her sense of design is always dictated by the latest ideas and techniques available, in order to ensure that every project she is involved in balances the aesthetic of the design with the environmental impact. Her eye is always on the grand design where her sense of grandeur, matched with style can be clearly seen.
