The success of any restaurant business is shaped by a myriad of variables, including décor, food, and location, all of which play a significant part in shaping the restaurant. However, a restaurant's design is one of the most important factors in determining its success. It is imperative to delineate the spaces of the restaurant in a manner that's inviting and guarantees a one-of-a-kind experience.

Floor Plan

All restaurant layouts differ, regardless of the design or size of the establishment, but majority of them share a common set of features. Included in this are the lobby, dining room, bar/lounge, pantry, kitchen, storage area, service entry, and administrative areas. In this case, to create a cohesive environment, we work to balance and link each space while also identifying different zones through architectural or decor elements.

This strategy is reflected in our project Anardana, which is planned out on an open layout. Every space had been interconnected, following the design concept. Additionally, an amphitheatre is added to the open floor plan to divide the zones while providing a cohesive setting. Upon stepping into the venue, one can see the entire configuration, including the bar in the centre, the private and semi-private dining areas surrounding it, and the transparent kitchen in the back. All spaces are combined through this planning and zoning, while still preserving each space's unique individuality.


The customer's first impression of the restaurant is formed by its entrance. The entry exposes the type of space a visitor will enter. In line with this concept, the entrance of The Carnival was meant to set the stage for the interior. It resembles a little arcade, complete with a ticketing desk, games, and merchandise stalls where visitors may work up an appetite before diving into the meal that awaits them. The monotony of muted tones is reduced by adding red and white highlights to accentuate the carnival theme.

Dining Layout

The dining area is the heart of the establishment. This is where the customer spends most of their time. We strive to create a dining area arrangement for the guests to be comfortable in the seating area and savour their cuisine. An interpretation of this concept is the island seating in the project Elchico, which is the central feature of the fine dining space, configured in vibrant hues and surrounded by plants. The area is enhanced by a central installation of a water body forming a tree-like structure that extends to the terrace. Moreover, the space is well illuminated by strategically positioning the angles of the shading device for the interior setting to be dynamic, enhancing the user experience.


The Kitchen area is one of the most significant aspects of any restaurant design. Kitchens in F&B are growing to be transparent and semi-transparent, captivating and entertaining guests. The semi-transparent kitchen at Sattvik designed by Chromed Design studio emanates pottery props and terracotta jali, which add character to the space and keep guests enthralled by its aesthetics.


Lighting design strives to allow people to work and circulate safely. It meets our visual needs while simultaneously providing protection and security. Light has an intuitive effect on people's moods. Architect Abhigya Neogi constructs lighting systems that enhance overall performance and user comfort. Glo is a project that demonstrates this concept further. As the name implies, this place is characterised by its glowing arches surrounding the water body in the outdoor setting providing illumination throughout the space. The bright globes are feature lights that are strategically positioned all across the water body. The outdoor space is designed with a light spectrum that fabricates a high-energy atmosphere, making the entire space illuminated in the dark. The indoor lighting fixtures, include dramatic pendants, complementing the outdoor arches and globes, creating an overall sheen of shine. The project shows an uplifting yet calm setting with the interplay of lighting and textures, adding a dynamic dimension to the created space.

A restaurant's acoustics influences customer experience and, eventually, the feedback. For maximum human comfort, an equilibrium must be achieved between aesthetics and ideal acoustical levels. Restaurants designed by Chromed Design Studio contain soft furniture like upholstered seats, tablecloths, and drapes as well as carpeted flooring, all of which have sound-absorbing properties for improved acoustics in a room. In conclusion, the ultimate goal of restaurant design is to strike a balance between the numerous functional requirements and specifications of the design and the surrounding environment.
