The distressed look of the restaurant and the nightclub not only resonates the theme of the club but also imbibes the spirit of the rustic landscape of Hyderabad.
What was commissioned as a moderate upgrade of the first restaurant outlet, halfway through construction, the proposed design prompted the client to start a fresh brand in a higher segment of the dining facility. The site is 55’ wide, 86’ long and 19’ tall space on the ground level and is a part of a hotel building. The space has been sublet to the client who runs a chain of restaurant in other cities in India. Space was divided into 3 distinct zone - a 300 sft of entrance foyer flanked by a curved brick wall partition enclosing the 2000 sft of night club (including 500 sft of mezzanine) and 3400 sft of restaurant space. The restaurant space is further divided into two zones.
The private dining area with low height suspended rope ceiling, the toilet foyer and the POS all clubbed longitudinally in line with the entrance foyer and the large double height dining space with northern side glazing filling the entire volume with natural light. Each of these areas have a distinct spatial quality, achieved by a controlled juxtaposition of materials and articulation of the the envelopes defining these spaces. The rugged textured surface of lime yellow color slate (Shahbad stone) and articulated brick wall has been complimented with relatively plain grey bison board partition and expanded sheet metal with a patina of rust.
The brick wall, Bison board partition panel with laser cut geometric patterns and rough textured Shahbad wall clad were laid in a deliberate pattern to heighten the play of light and shadow. A slightly off centered to the double height dining space is a large sculptural metal light fixture hovering over an island seating with an indoor plant in the center. The intimate foyer space lead the guests into the unexpected large volume of the restaurant and the club. The private dining room with large uneven timber log tables, semi enclosed within the Bison partition gives adequate privacy and still keeps the guest connected to the main restaurant. The ceiling over the foyer and the private dining area is done in jute rope. The flooring is in satin finish and flamed finish Chittoor black granite and teak wood planks around the island bar.
The 20’ long island bar with teak wood counter top and cement finish wall surface has another sculptural light fitting weighing close to 1 ton and made of hot rolled sheet, perforated sheet and MS sections suspended along its length. The two light fitting and most of the furniture’s are designed by the team BetweenSpaces itself and built with the help of local fabricators and carpenters.The distressed look of the restaurant and the night club not only resonates the theme of the club but also imbibes the spirit of the rustic landscape of Hyderabad.
