MR. BAOZI

Society Interiors - - PORTFOLIO -

Mr. Baozi, lo­cated in Juhu, com­bines lo­cal and Asian inuences into a raw earthy look with con­tem­po­rary touches. Par­tially con­cealed from the street view by a rus­tic yet eye-catch­ing ter­ra­cotta red wall crowned with a charm­ing scal­lop shaped trel­lis, the en­trance prom­ises an en­thralling vis­ual treat within its veiled fa­cade.

Be­yond the walls, a warm, rus­tic com­bi­na­tion of pinewood, stone and the deep rich­ness of brick cre­ates a re­splen­dent yet cosy out­door space nes­tled within a richly pat­terned ex­posed la­t­erite fa­cade. The raw ap­peal of these earthy ma­te­ri­als is sharply con­trasted by the bright chirpy yel­low and turquoise chairs, creating an el­e­ment of sur­prise that up­holds the unique­ness of ev­ery Sumessh Menon de­signed space.

The al­fresco sec­tion of Mr. Baozi has a mix of custom lounge seat­ing, and the raw brick and ce­ment se­quence that sets the tone of the en­tire out­door space is rem­i­nis­cent of Charles Cor­rea’s designs. The whole place is high on warmth and en­ergy. Menon has ef­fec­tively man­aged to scoop out a per­fectly round pri­vate nook from a square space with a nely crafted curved rope in­stal­la­tion that clev­erly grants pri­vacy with­out cut­ting you off from the allure of the restau­rant.

The restau­rant is truly a trea­sure-trove of il­lus­tra­tive de­sign ideas, ne craft and ex­cep­tional cus­tomiza­tion - an ode to all things fun and Asian. It’s a lively, chirpy yet warm space with a re­fresh­ing new theme—raw earthy meets funky Asian.
