Northern Central is situated overlooking a lake, the design is inspired by the natural context and takes an inside-outside approach to create free flowing open spaces.
The desire to create a fresh, light and airy restaurant space led to the conception of a breathing spine in the form of a living, green wall with tropical plants that connects the entrance to the patio in the rear. This creates a lush green breathing space amidst the otherwise monotonous mass of built spaces acting like the perfect breakout and a temporary hideaway zone.
Designed to imitate a train journey through vast expanses of lush greenery, the hues of greens and browns used in the interiors recreate the soothing and engaging nostalgia of dining on the train with friends and family. Contoured around the main theme of the restaurant, ‘a journey’, the relaxed spatial character is further enhanced with bold, distinctive scintillating elements transposed into installations and decorations. This idea is translated beautifully into the material palette with the wooden flooring breaking out and transitioning into chic patterned tiles. This play of wood and patterned tiles along with the stone, coloured glass and retro signage, brought together under the white tensile roof structure, creates an effortless and breezy yet controlled environment.
Aimed at creating an affable and calm atmosphere, Northern Central in Bengaluru is thus a welcoming space for anyone wanting to catch a break and unwind from the usual hustle bustle of the city.
