PROJECT DETAIL

MOTHER INDIA

EDINBURGH

Our client came to us with a very difficult space located in the basement of Mother India. The site came with many challenges including very low ceilings and no natural light. 

 

We only had eight weeks to complete the project in time for the Christmas season. The pressure was on, but no detail was spared. 

Our approach was to create a warm, intimate, softly lit interior that customers would enjoy spending time in.
