Gazal Restobar, Faridabad: Ar. Harish Tripathi and interior designer Jyoti Tripathi
Contemporary décor elements along with classical influences define the architecture and design of the Gazal Restobar designed by architect Harish Tripathi and interior designer Jyoti D. Tripathi
The double height restobar has a seating capacity of 80, spread over a lower and a mezzanine level. The lower level also houses the kitchen, service counter, and bar. On the mezzanine level, the seating in leatherite is in light beige colour, offset by red and orange to bring vibrancy to the space.
Subdued and natural colours like wood, beige, off white, and gold, paneling in fabric, glass films and floral patterns, custom-made tables with laminated tops and SS base, upholstered teak wood chairs, flooring of vitrified tiles and laminated wood, define the interior look and feel.
Adding a touch of nostalgia are mirrors and niches decorated with original artwork; painted images of the streets of old Delhi highlighted to establish a direct visual link to old Delhi and its Mughlai food, the signature cuisine of the Gazal Group.
A mix of lighting lamps add to the ambiance of the place. Cove lighting has been used throughout the restaurant, while warm lights highlight the artwork on the walls and other décor elements, to create focus points. Spotlights in the ceiling enhance the perception of depth in the interiors, while a classic chandelier brings a touch of tradition to the otherwise contemporary interiors.
