Exclusive One-on-One with Ar. Gaurav Mathur about His New Project RASA

RASA is one of the best skin treatment centres in Jaipur based in the heart of the city i.e. City pulse mall (1st floor). It is a very modern and contemporary design having bright colours and application of wallpapers to provide a fusion of Indian as well as British elements. RASA has entrance lobby on the lower floor and treatment is done on the upper floors, therefore vertical transit space from lower floor to the upper floor has been beautifully designed with very nice staircase, landscape and double-height chandelier opening into a waiting lobby on the first floor for counselling and further discussions.

Entrance Lobby is designed to have a vertical interaction between the waiting area on the lower floor and the upper floor. Glass grill with stainless steel pipe has been used and pure white marble is being laid on the staircase to make space look bigger and bright.

Stone pebbles and uplighters are used to lit up the space which adds like a feather in the cap and makes the staircase very interesting while climbing or coming down. It is also supported with beautiful graphics on one side conveying the philosophy and pedagogy of RASA.

View through Director’s Cabin from a large clear glass towards the staircase having its ambience and grace through the double-height chandelier hanging from the ceiling of the second floor till the entrance lobby in the lower floor.

To know more about the project #SurfacesReporterDotCom had a chit chat with the talented architect, Ar. Gaurav Mathur.

Why was the fusion of Indian and British elements used for this project, being a skin treatment facility?

With growing globalization, there is a lot of exchange of knowledge and cultural exposure hence today's demand for fusion in design has led us to amalgamate Indian and British style of architecture and interior elements.

How did you blend the various elements together?

The blending of elements was a very sensible and careful decision in consensus with the client. We have used white and golden colour in the interiors which look elegant and very contemporary.

Tell us about the lighting used in the facility.

Lighting is very important in any interior design hence we were very cautious about what lighting is to be added here. We basically divided understanding of light into 3 parts i.e. ceiling light, wall light and floor lights (as uplighters). All three types of lights play important roles in illuminating the interiors of the property.

How has been the response from the client?

Response from the client was very appreciable and they really liked the project. They really appreciated the work and also offered us another salon project for designing which also went very well and was completed well in time.
