DCA Architects have brought a touch of the Mediterranean to Amour Bistro in New Delhi

The New Delhi-based firm was charged to create a contemporary, elegant space for diners, mixing minimalist details and vintage styling. As the restaurant sits amidst the bustling streets of the nation’s capital, the challenge was to design an oasis of calm throughout the space.

To do this, they used earthy tones for the project, highlighting these with features such as mixed-material seating, tiled flooring and bespoke lighting fixtures. The facade of the building underwent major reconstruction, allowing the space to be opened up to create a light, airy interior.

For the roof, they chose slatted wooden panels and placed antique mirrors alongside to open the space up even further. The wine selection can be housed on the wooden racks that sit on one wall. They also act as an eye-catching design feature of the restaurant. Accents such as yellow planter boxes, tall windows and wooden trellis finish off the project, giving the bistro a warm, inviting feel.
