Busride Design Studio have completed a restaurant called The Smokehouse with an attached nightclub called SHRoom in New Delhi, India. Description from the architects : One of the most bizarre briefs we’ve worked with, Smokehouse Room flows organically out over 12,000 sq.ft of curves, overlooking the grandest view in India, the Qutub Heritage precinct.
The Smokehouse Room frames 13th Century history in postmodern lenses. The Smokehouse Room has 3 distinct, yet seamlessly connected offerings.We’ve tried to create a fluid, organically growing, psychedelic landscape that melts into various parts.
The Smokehouse Room is a tiny 40 seater tasting room. We created an elegant, understated, quiet atmosphere as a dramatic stage for a sensorial food performance, with subtle organic undertones. Each element in the Restaurant is hand-crafted, from the chairs and fluid partitions and window frames.
Lighting and paneling is designed to create long, fluid horizontal lines, that hint at the forms and textures of the Mushroom, which served as the formal inspiration behind the venue. Touted as “One of the finest restaurants to be setup in the city”, Smokehouse Room has been called “Brilliant and irreverent”.
