The White Mocha, Andheri We designed an all-day terrace version of the bohemian Mocha brand he Mocha at Lokhandwala is located on a large, second floor terrace of a commercial complex. The entire second floor is the Sykz gym. So this was an open-to-sky terrace located outside a gym; it had to feel healthy: fresh, light, and airy. It required us to re-invent an already well-established Mocha brand First, we did away with all the dark, saturated colors and heavy textures that Mocha had been so strongly associated with. We decided to use a lot of natural colors; lots of greens and flowering plants, stone, wood with natural stains, and cane furniture Our only use of saturated color was contained to blues and greens. All this came together in a white mocha, with only accents of color A few illustration accents, such as the Klimt Tree of Life helped bring in multipurpose features to help create lighting pockets, and areas of interest within the overall white theme The trademark Mocha eccentricity in seating shows up in our treatments. One table was interpreted as a picnic, guests could actually take off their shoes and relax on a small lawn on the terrace with a checkered picnic cloth for a fun dining experience Bright hand-made accents pepper the site, to add detail on otherwise clean white walls we wanted to bring in a lot more rigour into the making of furniture and lighting objects which were usually sourced from shops all over India. The Mocha has an interesting day-to-night transition, with the woven and leashed objects being sun-lit in the day and then emitting dull glows at night
