Hwealth Cafe by Studio Bipolar
New Delhi based Studio Bipolar created a gourmet healthy food dining experience in the heart of one Delhis busiest markets. The space, once occupied by a fast food joint, was selected for its prime corner location. The location afforded a sprawling visual connection to the hustle bustle of the plaza outside and also the heavy greenery around. Care was taken to ensure that the design capitalized on this. The concept of being in touch with the natural greenery outside while consuming all natural products inside, drove the design forward. The caf employs a deep green in its branding and was continued in the overall design of the space. This coupled with earthy tones and materials makes for a fresh and vibrant look. The architects chose to use pine wood extensively throughout the cafe. The light and airy wood grain and strong structural quality complements the food, which is fresh with strong flavours. Up down lighting highlights the beauty and sculptural quality of the pine wood vertical members. Pinewood Pallets were in turn used to create a large lighting feature to form a beautiful rustic chandelier over the banquet style, central seating area. Hexagonal tiles in different patterns are laid out randomly and add pops of color throughout the caf. This fresh and natural look is to be repeated in all future expansions of this health food brand.
