Pune’s much loved South East Asian Restaurant Trikaya now has another feather in its cap- They’ve won a Silver award at the A’ Design Awards under the Interior Space category. A' Design Award and Competition is the world's largest design competition awarding best designs, design concepts and products & services.

Ketan Jawdekar, a well renowned architect who has won several other awards and accolades for designing Interior Spaces has designed this 1300 square meter property, out of which 350 square meters of the area is enclosed and the rest is open to sky.

Simplicity is the key for Trikaya’s elegant decor. It plays with an earthy look with contemporary styling while a dash of bold colours act as a dressing. Natural Elements - wood, stones, planters and the engaging play of light and shadow enliven the remarkable experience while you flow from one section to another. It portrays the Oriental philosophy of The Absolute, Timeless Communication and The Real World combined together quite ingeniously offering a functional yet emotional and visual delight.

Aisle from lift lobby continues in the enclosed dining area with Balinese gates, Courtyard Dining is housed besides the open space of Aisle and the Fine dining is divided into various sections. Elements like water; stones and plants assist in maintaining the continuity allowing nature to gush inside. One can walk down to open lounge overlooking lush green hills taking you straight into the laps of Mother Nature. Open air dining gives a sense of garden venue with greenery and water bodies following the concept.

Emphasis was given on the use of local materials and the traditional construction techniques. Exposed stone work with lava stone, partitions in white sand stone, and creative use of bonds of construction are used as features of the restaurant. Vertical elements of walls are cladded with raw cement particle board in passages. The flooring is leather finished black local stone (Kudappah), and the ceiling is kept exposed and is painted black to give feeling of having dinner under twinkling stars in the night.

Ketan says, “Smooth transition of spaces- letting the landscape flow inside while merging the enclosed space with the outside nature, without compromising on the functionality was the challenge. Lush green hills around the site were an added advantage. Using contemporary styling as a base, we decided to add glimpses of South Eastern elements to arrive at the final solution”.

“We wanted the restaurant to enjoy an exquisite South East Asian experience, in terms of both, the food and the decor. Ketan’s architecture fulfils this with its simplicity and elegance making Trikaya truly chic”, says Director Sahil Saigal.
