The Hexa-louvred Cafe


Cafe Interior Designer in Gurgaon


The challenge was refurbishing the existing office café, with the interiors at hand along with the overall infrastructure. We had to work under given constraints of furniture, structure and spatial design. Another challenge was to execute the café under a given time as the company had no other place for lunch and the café had to be delivered on the New Year 2020.

The design challenges were creating elements which matched the existing theme of the office and to make the place more functional and durable.

Our Idea

Starting with the spatial planning, we wanted to give a new designated place in the cafeteria for informal seating, a sofa with a table where people can take a break and read a book, lie down for a while or chat with the fellow colleague. The same seating could also be used as extra seating during lunchtime.

We wanted to add a space designated for hand wash to keep the wet area separate from the café but still be a part of it. The idea was to light up space, make it more cheerful and introduce greenery inside the café, to provide a relaxing vibe. The wall on the right had existing louvres which became the source of our inspiration to make a café with the variation of louvres which can bring transparency and uniqueness to the place.

What we did

  • We created an informal seating at the back of the café, which had an L-shaped Sofa, with a cushioned back and louvres on the side. 
  • The louvres remained on the ceiling and the wall in front to enclose the informal seating that was created. Also, louvres were then continued on the ceiling in the wet area. 
  • One of the side walls were decorated with an abstract pattern of hexagons which blended in the louvres on the side. The other wall was textured painted to keep it clean during the time of service. 
  • The colour combination used were grey, brown and white. We created hanging installations which also contained lights and helped to light up the entire place. The installation was of a grass planter on the ceiling with a downward light on the tables. 
  • The service counter was created with statuario (white) stone and black granite on the top. We hanged a louvred jail similar to jail on the informal seating on top of the service counter to replicate the louvres on the ceiling and the walls. 
  • The entrance walls were painted in stripes, the idea to create louvres with the paint on the wall. It also created an illusion while entering and highlighted the company’s logo. 
  • A similar louvred jali was created on the entrance to give the sense of entire theme while entering the café. Conical hanging lights were developed to break the monotony of straight lines in the space.
