Pizza Express, BKC, Andheri, Mumbai, 2013

3000 sq ft

Abstracting elements from the skyline of Mumbai, railings and balconies of Bandra village homes and the industrial grunge of Andheri, both outlets use a rich palette of materials to define their interior landscapes. These successful designs have become a benchmark and have set standards for all Pizza Express outlets in India.

Inspite of working for an international brand with a distinct design outlook, our work in India operates within the cultural context of the country and yet suggests that each Pizza express is a product of cultural mutation and reinvention. We try and maintain the spirit of each location, desire of people and attempt to integrate the real, imaginary and the symbolic.
