Book My Show Office Interiors
Juhu, Mumbai, India
Type: Commercial Environment
Design Team: Ipsit Patel, Rika Chaudhry
Project Size: 1,800 Sq. ft.
Program: Quirky office space for the creative heads of BMS
The clients wanted to revamp their workspace to “something that was not the usual commercial office”. The site is an old residential Bungalow, with an outdoor front garden. Our aim was to respond to the site context of the existing structure, while providing a quirky, fun, ‘Bollywood’ yet functional environment for the clients.
The space is generated keeping in tandem with the company’s profile, a cinema and entertainment ticketing website. One enters into a double height space to a ticketing booth as the reception counter with a backdrop of a huge poster wall. The central circulation space divides the office into public and private zones. The mezzanine floor atop the conference room overlooks the reception and houses a library and two cabins.
Industrial materials have been used in a way to appear finished. The railings for the mezzanine are made using plumbing pipes. The conference room table is made out of plumbing pipes with a rubber wood top and trolley castors at the legs. The intention was to allow flexibility and mobility. A wooden bench substitutes chairs at one end to allow for greater accommodation. A rugged accent in the form of exposed cement sheets and wire mesh partition are juxtaposed with Duco painted surfaces and black leather seating.
The office is preceded by an outdoor space that is used for multiple programs ranging from movie screenings, informal meetings to smaller gatherings. All in all the space has been designed in keeping with Book My Show’s vibrant spirit.
