Kanpur is a small city situated on the banks of the Ganges River and known for its modest and simplistic demeanor. Synonymous to the ambient atmosphere of this quaint location, the recently designed project by Intaglio Design Studio, exerts a vibe that is fresh and tropical.
Entitled as the Penthouse, a single glance at the frames of this all day diner, is enough to instill a feeling of comfort and serenity in the minds of the user.
Located on a terrace along a busy street in Swaroop Nagar, the design of this restaurant flamboyantly showcases the magic of minimalistic vitality.
The restaurant wants to imbibe an intimate feeling along with an all-day diner ‘in vogue’. It is a fine amalgamation of trendy elements, chic furnishings and topped off with complementing interior greens.
This blend is what formulates as the prime concept, perceivable through the basic verticals as well as the aesthetic elements.
“Choosing to portray the elegance of an all-day eatery with the use of understated yet iconic components, was the first thought that came to our minds when we started to conceptualize the stated brief. The execution of this idea in detail, aided us to achieve the exact panorama planned and also be at par with what the clients desired,” said Ar. Chinmay Ajmani, Principal Architect of the project.
Designed with a combination of wooden textures and tropical patterns, the bling of the neon lights aid to set the tone of the ambiance.
With a seating capacity of approximately 60 guests, this eatery presents its users with a plethora of furnishing styles. Fore-fronted by 5 four-seater tables on the left of the elevated stage platform, these furniture options extrude a supplementary warm grey tone, that complement the verticals of the space well.
Further on, a few sofa seating options in similar shades are placed alongside a monotoned wall. The culminating area, that quickly grasps the attention, houses booth seating crowned by an array of arches decked in a vibrant green tint. Delicately separable by chic white fabrics, these furnishings also portray a mélange of clouded tones and earthy shades like brown and ochre.
The prime component that formulates the success of this all-day diner ideology, is rooted with the styling of the roof. Drawn into a pergola, covered with acrylic sheets to prevent the entry of rain and dust, it inculcates the ultimate feeling of feasting in a cabana while soaking the vitality of nature. Aiding to create playful shadows in the daytime and as streams of twinkling lights during dusk, this pergola is the most understated element supplementing its magic in the curation of the intrinsic aura.
Detailed to the last component, every aspect of this design exquisitely marries itself with the rest of the space, yet maintains its unique facet.
