Happy Birthday Sameep Padora

Sameep Padora, an innovative Indian architect known for his one-of-a-kind designs, turns 40 today! He was born on 9th July 1974. The innovative architect's prolific work ranges from private residences and retail projects to commercial and hospitality ones. The young Padora completed his GDarch from the Academy of Architecture and Masters of Design from the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University. After working in New York at Cook + Fox architects, Padora returned to Mumbai and set up his own design firm in 2006. He has won various prestigious awards such as the WAN Awards 21 for 21 in 2014, the Forbes India: Architect of the year award in 2011 as well as the Marmomacc International Award for Architecture in Stone in 2011. Padora and his team challenge conventionality, either by re-interpreting or deconstructing the design. His designs focus on green initiatives, hey uses recycled and local materials wherever possible, as well as green architectural measures. He is well known for a wide range of unique architectural structures, in his honour, we shall take a trip down memory lane with a quick sneak peak of his great work...

The design of the Indigo Delicatessen was made with the intent to combine the warmth of a vine cellar with the style of retail design. It is a quasi-dome, made to oppose the conventional mall like structure. The design was made using digital parametric tools which have been magnificently executed.
This resort reflects a unique design created from the amalgamation of traditional craft, local materials and modernity. Wood being the primary interior material, this project has a very simple yet classy style.
The interiors of this lounge have been executed following a contemporary style, with the colour palette revolving around black. Surprisingly the dark interiors are not overwhelming, in fact when combined with the lighting and the many screens, the ambiance is appropriately chic. This style design proudly lives up to the FTV brand and its flamboyant style.
Based on the notions of soft form and the human body in motion, this staggeringly unique showroom is surely one-of-a-kind. The semi-circular mirror display systems and the chalice like form are both unique lay-outs for a showroom. To top it all off, the white colour scheme gives the outlet a chic look.
The space is made to double as a loaded bar, solving the issue of a congested space. The counter is huge and central, making up most of the bottom level, it is made more like a hangout spot than just a bar counter.
We at CW INTERIORS wish Sameep Padora a very Happy Birthday.
