“Experience culture and tradition in the heart of the Ahmadabad city”With more number of café opening in the city keeping specific concept as the primary attraction, that would be beyond just food and beverages. When the client approached the AW for designing a café, the design thoughts immediately veered to create something for which city lacked in.
Café Ludic is an artistically designed “Gujarati cum Modern heritage café” which is thrill of drama and colors maintaining the splendid tradition having “Ootla” to be concept behind. Beyond the walls the entry is been orchestrated through a porch abutted by planters on one side and bird wall on the other creating a welcoming traditional entry that releases you into the café with a central ootla seating having
inverted tree for ceiling.
To reflect the culture and maintain the concept windows, having a main street view hence designed in such way that keeps inner space away from hustle-bustle environment; making use of traditional Gujarati birds “chakali, kabootar, popat”, for better aesthetics.Being an interior project light would play the most important role hence to merge with concepts street poles inspired from pol area from
ahmedabad and Wall Street hanging light has been used as a major element.
To design a café is endeavor and process of selecting the right seating layout which would not only compliment the concept but also functionally serve the purpose with at maximum level to achieve the comfort zone , here we tried to designed a layout in such way that would have formal and informal sitting s in a way which would accommodate the most people without having a crowded room.
The visual aesthetics within is free flowing and organic that goes with material, colors and forms. Predominance of earthy red with dash of IPS flooring and materials like terrazzo texture, smooth swells of cement sheets for bird wall and MS and timber clubbed together for rustic partition wall making the space alive, each space is been designed with distorting views and to revive the tradition of Ahmedabad.
