The Beer Cafe
The Beer Cafe, Rohini
Located at Unity One Mall Rohini, New Delhi, this Beer Cafe was designed to attract the Millennials. A generation always seeking the extra mile of cool.
To create unique ambience a street cafe theme was explored leading towards the use of shipping containers, trussed metal ceilings and food trucks. The style finally achieved was a combination of ‘a contained space’, essentially a volume within a volume and ‘structural expressionism’.
For logistical reasons, use of an actual shipping container was negated, therefore a faux container housing the BOH was created using metal framework and corrugated sheets. The illusion of 'a contained space' seemed incomplete without a deconstructive metal lattice around the space negating the physical boundaries of the space by drawing all the attention towards the built form.
