Shree Rathnam, designed by Ar. Suvrita Bhardwaj and Ar. Nikhil Pratap Singh led Loop Design Studio, seeks to bridge the gap between South Indian architecture's vibrancy and the minimal modernist interiors' elegance. An intricate blend of marble and oakwood scalloping with handmade tiles creates a wonderfully balanced look in this modern cafe. The architects provided SURFACES REPORTER (SR) with additional information regarding the project. Take a look:

Its interior design is formulated from bands and layers of different shades and textures, creating a single unity.
The warm colour tones of the Southern part of the Indian peninsula, and its hues reminiscent of the different shades of natural landscape, create a contrast in harmony at the heart of this volume. Its materiality attempts to complement the scene.
The striking intensity and sculptural quality of Indian marble are powerful symbols of the rich hues and grandeur of South Indian architecture. The stone is a beautiful representation of nature's work, enhancing the beauty and splendour of the outlet.
Marble blending with the warmth of oakwood scalloping and handmade tiles brings balance to the avant-garde layout. Contemporary furniture and greenery reinforce the atmosphere, as do the geometric designs on the wooden ceiling, adding an element of eclecticism to the volume.
This space pays tribute to contemporary regional architecture with two distinct styles uniting together in harmony.
