UP IN THE SKY

With its bright colours and alfresco dining, the Mediterra restaurant in Indore ensures its diners an enchanting visual treat.

When it comes to a theme restaurant, the concept influences everything right from the cuisine served, to the architecture, the design and layout of the restaurant. For architect Sandeep Shikre of Sandeep Shikre & Associates (SSA), the task was further challenged by the fact that the Mediterra restaurant would be the 12th in the Sayaji Hotel, Indore designed by him.

«There was a need to create a restaurant that would appeal to the sensibilities of the people of Indore but at

TRADING PLACES

Combining family life with a home-based business can be challenging if your property doesn’t accommodate both comfortably. ‘My business was part of the reason for choosing this house, as it had the retail space as well as the room we wanted,’ says Sara.

Try doesn’t have to mean cramped. This top-floor apartment only had a footprint of 550sqf but the 4.5m-high ceiling and floor-to-ceiling bank of windows visually compensated for the lack of space. «Still, the configuration was tight, with a wall cutting the space into two: on one side was the bedroom and bathroom and on the other, the kitchen and living and dining space,» says Kelly Choong of Project File.

Said wall had to be taken down to open up the

Growing PASSION

C o r i n n e Knoesen’s airy London home is a lesson in the art of compromise. ‘When my husband Scherrit and I started househunting, our wish list included a minimum of four bedrooms, a garage and a south-facing aspect,’ Corinne recalls. After an initial fruitless search, the couple pondered what they would do if they found a house that ticked every box but which they didn’t love. ‘The answer was simple: we’d buy it anyway,’ she says.

The Edwardian property the couple eventually found had much to commend it and was just a stone’s throw from a

A VAST CANVAS

This house’s design philosophy of contemporary minimalism simultaneously reflects a sense of detachment

Sumie is an ancient Asian art form of pen and ink drawing. It is minimalistic, comprising the fewest brush strokes in monochrome to capture the essence of a subject. Sumie paintings are characterised by the contrast of dark and light and the vast empty spaces left in their composition. The pictorial emptiness represents the Buddhist philosophy of detachment while the brush strokes capture feelings visually.

Ashish Patel, Nikhil Patel and Vasudev Shcta of Ace Associates wittingly turned this Anand house into a giant canvas that creatively expresses
