Conversion of this former bike service center into a restro, café & lounge to provide a pleasant place for people to enjoy and hangout. The main concept of this project was industrial design with bike as its main subject which commands not only for good aesthetics but more importantly for a great experience.
The panoramic glass window allowing the natural light to pour inside the café space and SS (Stainless Steel) mesh screen facade which creates a kinetic visual and architectural identity for the café and shades from different angles at the day time and aesthetic impact, warm glow and drama at the night.
Exposed Ceiling hosting different parts of bike, woven rope and wood segregating entrance, lounge, reception and fine dine in a single space. The industrial material palette chosen for Gallon 56 that includes scrap, leather, jute fabric, wood and metal as its main element giving this bikers café concept an air to breathe.
Customized lights, made out of bike scrap & metal drum and the art & accessories chosen for the café including antiques, artworks and rugs when placed at their respective places gives retro vibes and a soul to this place.
Everything revolves around a refined simplicity and essentiality of the material used, intertwined exposed structure, save a lot of transformation of the space, play on the contrast of light in a scenic vintage case. Each element, from the arrangement of the tables to the choice of sittings designed to create an experience more than a simple space. Strong symbols catches attention and set a unified style, exposing passion and love for bikes and the thrill of it.
