well-established architecture and interior design practice based in Lahore, Pakistan. Its award-winning interior design project, Brasserie...the Restaurant, is on the first floor of one of Lahore city’s most popular shopping malls and restaurant hubs. Its owners wanted to create a hip yet cosy restaurant space, introducing terrace seating to the mall and capturing the view of one of the city’s most beautiful roads, Main Boulevard. The client’s brief was for the Brasserie to be designed in a way that would unify the café and a la carte elements, creating indoor and outdoor seating areas with a sense of progression from one space to the next. The target clientele are bankers and corporate staff
from offices surrounding the mall as well as the younger generation which flocks to the laser tag avenue next door. Zasa’s design objective was to preserve the vernacular by recreating an old world, rustic ambience that would impart a sense of industrial chicness. Hence the choice of materials was reclaimed wood, blackened steel, concrete flooring with a hint of colour and burnt bricks. All finishes are natural and raw to create a casual atmosphere while also amalgamating soft hues of sophistication for fine dining. The visual intrigue of the Brasserie is further enhanced by the use of antiques, custom artwork, lighting and accessories, all featuring a mood of rustic refinement.
