Element 3 | Studio HC | Bangalore
In a world that thrives on hectic routines and fast paced lifestyles, our Satvik restaurant, Element 3 stands as an oasis of tranquillity and nourishment. Drawing inspiration from ancient Indian philosophies, the design concept is rooted in simplicity, purity and balance. Element 3 aims to provide not just a gastronomic experience but a holistic journey that rejuvenates the mind, body and soul.
Upon entering the Satvik restaurant, guests are greeted by a soothing ambience characterized by minimalist design and organic elements. Natural material wood dominates the interior in floors and furniture elements. Ochre and Teal accent tones are incorporated to create a vibrant yet calming atmosphere.
The seating arrangements are thoughtfully arranged to offer comfort and privacy to diners. Seating with plush cushions and soft pillows provide an authentic touch, offering a connection with traditional Indian dining practices. Private booths are available for those seeking a secluded space for family gatherings or meetings. Flexible seating allows the restaurant to easily accommodate varying party sizes, from solo diners to large group.
A combination of metal and wood was decided for the custom made light fixtures. In order to bring the design to life, we were able to find skilled craftsmen to fabricate the light fixtures safely and accurately. Our vision combined with their expertise resulted in a stunning arrangement of ochre and teal toned light fixtures that adds a touch of elegance to the restaurant.
We wanted the materials which were chosen for the interior to align with the restaurant’s concept, theme and target audience. Wood being a versatile material was used predominantly throughout the dining area. It was used in flooring, doors, furniture and ceiling features. Live plants and green walls were added in the entry and the dining space to add a refreshing touch to the restaurant interior.
Located at Indiranagar, Bangalore, Satvik restaurant, Element 3 was designed to give the user a mixed feel of a neoclassical look. The clients approached Studio HC a multi-disciplinary design led by Hemanth C, who has blazingly carved the interior design, adding different aesthetic appeal – nothing but the finest of experiences for people visiting. The brief was to develop a calming design language that would steer away from the conventional approach of designing this restaurant and open up a dialogue between the visitors and the surroundings. The objective was to create a layout inclined towards spatial recognition such as the movement becomes organised, owing to the needs and requirements of the project. The design consists of a circular themed lightning for the dining area which consists of wooden tables and cushioned chairs finished in dual dark tone colours in contrast to the light colour palette around it. Natural tones of flooring allure the luxurious ambience, which is further accentuated by lighting fixtures. Ambient lighting has been used in the design to define the overall look and feel of the restaurant.
