Cat­e­gory : Restaurants, Cafes, Pubs & Food Courts Project : Auriga GOLD : San­jay Puri Ar­chi­tects

VM&RD - - VM-RD RETAIL DESIGN AWARDS 2014 -

An old fac­tory ware­house was stripped to house Auriga - restau­rant and night­club, where San­jay Puri Ar­chi­tects cre­ate the feel­ing of be­ing within a sculpted en­vi­ron­ment re­defin­ing the way in­ter­nal spa­ces can be per­ceived.

Craft­ing this ab­stract con­cept be­gins with the build­ing’s ex­te­rior which is done in a web of alu­minium fins that are folded in an­gu­lar planes. This ge­om­e­try is car­ried into the in­te­rior of the ground level where the web is more ab­stracted and sheaths the walls, ceil­ing, stair­case, bar and col­umns. Par­tially open and par­tially en­closed in strips of gal­va­nized metal sheets that are back­lit, the en­tire space is ren­dered sculp­tural with the in­te­gra­tion of all de­sign el­e­ments within the ab­stractly wo­ven web.

A black pal­ette forms the back­drop for this metal web with a flamed dark grey gran­ite floor, black walls and black sound in­su­la­tion fiber boards con­sti­tut­ing the ceil­ing. A sin­gle flight stair­way tra­verses through a 24’0” high vol­ume from the metal dom­i­nated night­club at the lower level to a wood en­closed restau­rant above.

The walls, ceil­ing and live kitchen counter and serv­ing bar counter are sheathed in un­du­lat­ing an­gu­lar planes of thin wood strips cre­at­ing a fluid vol­ume for the restau­rant.

The two lev­els are in com­plete con­trast, where one is dom­i­nated by steel and the other by wood to cre­ate dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences within the same space. The ab­strac­tion of each space with one merg­ing into the other through the dou­ble height vol­ume lo­cated cen­trally in­te­grates them si­mul­ta­ne­ously
