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
