Featuring the charm of vintage English pubs and bars, The Chatter House designed by MoFA Studio has recently been completed in New Delhi

Located amidst a fusion of high end cafes and designer label boutiques in the sophisticated bylanes of Khan Market, the pub’s entrance is an oversized, black-matte-finished steel door panelled with clear glass, which welcomes guest into the dusky interior of the two-storey bar. The New Delhi retreat is made mostly of ochre and brown bricks that conjure up multiple images of an old reclaimed British/Irish Underground station or a tunnel with a chain of warm-toned lights.

There are many decor details added to the bar, such as the majestic Art Deco-inspired oak wood bar counter, which is in the centre of the room. It is matched against proportioned square wood and tanned leather bar stools that complement it with a warmer shade of brown. The counter has a subtle punch of masculinity through the steel addition inserted under the counter top. The riveting at its corners amplifies the vintage elements, consistent with the interior. The seating is designed with tanned antique leather upholstery with dark wood high back paneling reminiscent of the Irish bars in and around Dublin.

Two over-sized circular glass windows are positioned on the ceiling and sides on the upper floor in contrast to the dusky lower level. This allows natural light to shower in on the second floor creating an illusion of more space brimming with natural ambience as oppose to a more exclusive atmosphere of privacy on the ground floor.
