KOLKATA, West Bengal, India-700032 |Practicing since: Sept. 12, 2008
Experimenting with eclecticism: Food Court at Infospace,Kolkata , Hospitality-Restaurant & Cafe
Kolkata is historically known as a cultural city, priding herself with rich traditions in music, art, painting and literature. Yet being a city of early twenty first century, she has to cope with globalization, new ethical and fashion change and of course Gen Y. Thus the food court; which acts as a leisure place for these people who belong to this century, use foreign brands and gadgets in their households, use new phrases that are mixture of languages but at the same time remains in a very traditional, cultural families, enjoys Durga Puja and loves football. So it was decided to go for a fusion of tradition and modernity, the food court acts as a backdrop where East meets West and continues in unison, each trait reinforcing other rather than creating conflict.

The colonnaded porch outside the Food Court
The view of the court along the regular pedestrian route acting as the attractor.
ZingyEdit: Artistic expression with the paintings permeated by the glass paneled facade engages the onlookers, luring them to reach inside.
Entry to the food court
The walls were hand painted with the hybrid style devised for this project somewhat reminding kolkata’s much hyped “diwal likhon”…mainly political graffiti on city walls.
ZingyEdit: Culture of Bengal is displayed in the form of traditional paintings, over the wall.
The food Court inside
Indian patterns and motifs were used in the pillars flanked by large areas of glass under a high ceiling. This symbolic harmonization of two genres were represented on one hand through the typical Bengal style painting known as “Potochitro”

Clear glazing ensured a full visibility to increase the visual experience
ZingyEdit: An entrance to a public place has to be inviting enough to manage the masses to experience the enticing aura of the food court.

The colour scheme comes as a contrast against the neutral minimal building facade.
