Somewhere Restaurant

This restaurant is located in a structure built by the midc in the late 70’s. since The restaurant was not a part of the original structure ,Four rooms of varied sizes were delegated for the restaurant so there were some constraints which resulted in unequal bays and sizes of columns. The height along the entire front verandah was a meagre 8 feet with tin roofing. The existing plinth had gone down with respect to the surrounding ground.a major waterproofing job had to be done for the terrace. Design solutions - A variety of civil repair works had to be carried out to rectify the above defects and slowly most of the interior was done in the civil work itself. The verandah roofing was removed and a slab was added at 11feet for which a new set of columns had to be added in line with the existing columns. A Rough antique finish tandoor ,calliberated,chequered was used for the flooring and internal cladding. The slab was lined with 50mm thermacol sheets and left exposed with the steel cables holding them in a cross pattern. old wine bottles were used in the bar counter. centering ballis were used as dividers and the furniture was made from 19mm plywood piled on top of each other finished with varnish exposing the core.air conditioning ducts and electric pipes were kept exposed. Old khosla toggle switches mounted on wooden boards were used.
