The recently renovated Akbarallys store in Mumbai, India by DCA Architects meets the needs of modern retail 

Built decades ago, Akbarallys store in Mumbai has been renovated several times. The latest refurbishment by DCA Architects has been completed recently, breaking the norms of design and structure to increase flexibility.

Architects decided to remove multiple layers of previous renovations to expose old structures. The new face is a blend of half-broken cornices and capitals, old arches and structural systems.

The mezzanine floor uses a chequered plate for the causal section. For the barber shop, black and white terrazzo is the main theme. The use of raw and rustic materials blend with coloured galeecha glasses and antique mirrors in steel framework to form partitions and paneling through the store.
