Project Title : A recreation of intimate Balinese dining, Putu Made Restaurant
Location : Senayan City 5th Floor Jl. Asia Afrika No.Lot.19, Jakarta, Indonesia
Completed : 18 December 2017
The interior of Putu Made is a reminiscence of Balinese rich culture and the modern interpretation of the vibrant dining scene of the island. The ambiance is reflected through the use of raw natural materials that are commonly found in the Balinese architecture and design.
Dynamic and varied images of Bali challenges our interpretation of Balinese heritage and culture into modern design that correlates with the essence of Balinese cuisine.
Another challenge of creating creative space in a dining establishment in Shopping Mall is the existing low ceiling. Limitation in ceiling height should not limit us from creating comfortable and spacious dining area in the restaurant.
We take inspiration in our interior design that resonates vividly with Balinese character that is visualised in the style of artwork and furniture material in the dining area.
The focal point of this restaurant will be the strong presence of Balinese culture that entails Tari Barong (Lion Dance); mythical figure of the protector of Bali villages and Payung Teduh Kuning (Yellow Balinese Umbrella); a decorative element that can usually be found in temples in Bali.
Choices of eclectic materials such as timber, brass and rattan are used in the cocoon-shaped chairs and loose furniture to bring about the coastal feeling of Bali Beaches in the area.
To address the issue of low ceiling, wall treatment for the area is treated with choices of exposed concrete of Bricks and nature-themed mural to enhance the dining ambience. Different ceiling and floor patterns are also utilized to signal the zoning shift to create depth to address the low ceiling. While some ceiling in the middle dining area used bricks, another approach of ceiling treatment can be seen by using dark, natural colour of roofing and this also is supported with warm lighting.
