Architect Pankti Shah of Amogh Designs with interior designer Shalvi Shah has crafted this charming restaurant, christened - the House of Makeba in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Spanning 4500-5000 sq. feet, the project is a compendium of four floors, all offering a different ambience satisfying different nerves in the visitors. The project features biophilic elements such as organic shapes & forms, green walls, potted plants, water features, warm lighting, and nature-inspired hues. The aura of this restaurant won't let you go and will make you indulge in its nature-instilled beauty.

The Painting of 'Makeba' Welcomes The Guests
A step into the edifice takes you into an aura of grandeur. The mint and gold hues welcome one into tranquillity and opulence. Then, the painting of 'Makeba,' lionizing the wall at the entrance, receives its guests.
This floor has been earmarked 'Beanary'. It offers cafe-style dine-in immersing you in the aroma of beans and leaves. It follows a tropical, informal theme with a casual dining setup and board games.
This multi-cuisine restaurant has been designed keeping in mind a biophilic format which justifies its application to hospitality design.
Peppered With Biophilic Elements
Th entire property has been painted in a green and blue colour palette with neutral greys and hand-painted wall art.
The tropical deep coral and green elements, brass chairs, vase-shaped clay lights, the tactile richness of the materials used and the play of light and shadow make it an ideal place to engage the senses and impart a classic vibe.
The water element, 'waterfall', and organic shapes induce calming emotions in you.
The First Floor Characterizes Persian-Moroccon Style
A feast for the vegetarians' tummies, the first floor- 'Persia- The pure veg fine dine.' - also pleases their eyes with a scenic view through a Persian-style pane.
The intricate CNC cutworks, aqua blue, dusky rose and gold tints aggrandize the overall outlook of the place while enhancing the vibe.
The subtle lighting of the space complements its Persian-Moroccon backdrop.

Fusion of Traditional and Modern Design on The Second Floor
The second floor is consecrated to Meraki. The floor showcases a beautiful fusion of modern and traditional design.
The bold shades of green and blue mirrors are niched into the walls and the lighting gives this space a dreamy vibe making it look more spacious and bright.
Greek and Mediterranean Feel on the Third Floor
The third floor- Terrazo, is planned to be a rooftop cafe and dine-in.
Its perpetual flooring, walls washed in calm tones of blue and white, greenery, tenuous lighting, floral creepers, and plush furnishings accord it a Greek and Mediterranean feel.
