ELAARS Lifestyle Studio is a Sanatary Ware and Tiles Showroom situated in Chinchwad, Pune.
Originally an old office space, the site was a semi-basement with faint windows and hardly any sunlight with around 3 feet clearance from the ground level. The task was to surrogate the old shabby space with a state-of-the-art showroom.
The requirement of the showroom was to display itself in every possible bit. Since the major focus of display was sanitary fixtures, a minimal attention is rendered to the floor and the ceiling. This allows the users to concentrate on the products more effectively. For the same reason, accent light is used on the products and the whole showroom works on a zero ambient lighting principle. This not only makes the showroom an energy efficient space but also adds a pinch of romance to the entire area. Following the needs, the ceiling is painted black and the flooring is classical IPS flooring.
Widely praised and appreciated, the project got published in the October 2012 edition of Society Interiors magazine.
