Society Interiors - - RESTAURANT DESIGN -

awwarah is the lat­est food des­ti­na­tion in Kolkata. In Ara­bic Nawwarah means bril­liant and daz­zling. This Moroc­can-themed restau­rant lit­er­ally lives up to its name.

The 1,500 sq. ft. restau­rant is spread over three lev­els with var­ied zones – fine din­ing area, ice-cream par­lour, bar-lounge, cafe­te­ria and a hookah sec­tion. Owned by San­jay Gupta of Om Gan­pati Cater­ers, the restau­rant serves ex­clu­sively veg­e­tar­ian fare. The ground floor com­prises of ice cream par­lour and a fine din­ing joint; the first floor has a bar and lounge; the sec­ond floor has a cafe and hookah sec­tion.

The most op­u­lent area is the fine din­ing area. Ex­plain­ing the de­sign con­cept in­te­rior de­signer Ankita Baid says, “The de­sign of this area spells lux­ury and grandeur with mas­sive and in­tri­cate hand-carved ceil­ings, gold metal-clad wall cov­er­ings, solid wooden fur­ni­ture, gold leafed chairs and mother-of-pearl ta­bles.” The mas­sive crys­tal chan­de­liers lends an op­u­lent look. The fine din­ing ceil­ing is in solid wood carv­ings, with mir­rored in­lays.

For the ice cream par­lour area, Ankita Baid has cre­ated a fresh and vi­brant look with green­ery and flow­ers clad on walls. She says, “The ice-cream par­lour is calm and sooth­ing in terms of colours, lot of green­ery-clad walls and rainbow coloured lights lend re­ju­ve­nat­ing feel.” Glass mo­saic floor­ing and clus­ter of Moroc­can lights on the ceil­ing, adds to the drama. A wooden bench seat­ing lends an in­for­mal look of the ice cream par­lour.
