About the project
Located at the heart of the Electronic City – Bangalore, Biocon Biologics’ Executive Dining area occupies the fifth-floor right wing of their flagship building Biocon House. Designed to reflect their simplicity, attention to detail and brand ethos, the executive dining area is a blend of bespoke classical and contemporary elements.
Encompassing a little over 6000 sq. ft, the layout features a mix of open and private dining areas along with dedicated service counters, food preparation areas and wash areas. The area under consideration for the project was on the topmost floor of the building, hence Acorp was able to utilise the significant height to the design’s advantage. The simplicity of the dual layer of gypsum ceiling also helped accentuate the same. The brand centric executive lounge was designed to be very welcoming, inviting one to be seated until their table gets ready. Post that, they would be escorted to their designated tables. A mix of seating options ensures that a party of any size can be quickly organized and accommodated in terms of servicing. A centrally located U-shaped service counter that dishes out plated food and beverages, also serves to divide the overall dining area into two halves. The 14-seater private dining lounge is the crown jewel of this particular space. It boasts a dedicated service counter and features a large digital display wall with acoustic wallpaper that enables one to have business related discussions in a calm, elegant yet understated environment.
The theme of this space design was ‘Understated Elegance’ – a blend of art deco elements along with modern materials and textures. Materiality plays a major role here with colonial wainscotting, wicker and textured walls add a sense of charm to the overall space. Movable privacy partitions, resplendent in the nature provide an added sense of privacy to ensure that semi-confidential discussions can take place here.
Discreetly placed biophilic elements along with patterned tile cladding ensures that the modern touch accentuates the overall aura of the space. The warmth, airiness and textured dining space reflects Biocon’s brand identity while demonstrating the unique context and atmosphere that drives them.
