Cafe Azzure by DS2 Architecture
Situated roughly 10km from the Kempegowda international airport, the cafe occupies the third and terrace floor of the east facing property.
The design approach was to create, curate and establish an experience that amalgamates cultures and holistically comes across as a space that is international in its visual language yet is grounded locally. At the entrance, one is greeted by a subtle white brick wall and an azzure coloured double door with frosted glass inserts. Shades of blue and textures of cane and wood blend in together to seamlessly create a visual symphony that is at once quaint, debonair yet celebratory.
The indoor space was largely designed to accommodate large gatherings and families. Wooden flooring and ceramic tiles subliminally segregate the two zones - from semi-private to private. The tiles along with cane elements in the lighting fixtures and the counter create a distinct flavour of varied influences. The imposing fluted blue columns not only add a visual and volume contrast they also add the depth of traditional intricacy within the litany of modern elements.
