The Smokehouse Room is a modern restaurant from New Delhi, India, with a wonderful nightclub next to it called SHRoom, both of them designed by the people from Busride Design Studio. This was one of the company’s most peculiar projects since the Smokehouse Room covers more than 12,000 square feet and offers stunning views of the Qutub Heritage precinct.
The whole design involves shapes that fade in and out – sometimes it looks fluid, sometimes it looks like it melts, giving the impression that guests are stuck in a dream in some unreal world. The restaurant can receive around 40 clients in a unique atmosphere that seems peaceful thanks to the organic undertones used here.
Every element of décor in the Smokehouse Room is hand-made, including the chairs and the window frames. There is a special effect created by the lighting and paneling that with the forms and textures looking like they’re part of a mushroom. A lot of guests and even other designers consider this restaurant one of the best in town right now.
The bar, on the other hand, seems to represent duality since by daytime it is plain white while during the night it completely changes, being brightly coloured, just like the cocktails served here. The edge of the spaces seem to melt and the sofa has an organic form. The architects insist to use the word “psychedelic” when mentioning the concept of their design,which represents the idea of a dream, something that melts and that changes shape.
The two spaces, the SHRoom and the Smokehouse Room, can be found at the 3rd floor of The Crescent Mall in Qutub.
