The Challenge
The Mekong Restaurant based in the plush Anantara Hotel approached us for their interiors and fit-out work with only 90 days in hand as the Hotel was already up and running and therefore a functional restaurant was the urgent need. Named after the Mekong river in Thailand, the restaurant was expected to impersonate that by creating a flowing water body. Moreover, to capture the authenticity, the outdoor furniture and artefacts were to be sourced from Thailand, the procurement of which took time. Also, the requirements of the operator were to be incorporated in the intricate designs. Once that was done, another task was to assimilate the teams for MEP, Décor, furniture and designs as well keeping them all in a loop while waiting for the procured goods to arrive from Thailand. The most challenging, however, was waiting for the Tuk-Tuk, the traditional rickshaw in Thailand and refurbishing it entirely, to be used as the outdoor seating furniture.
Our Solution
We created the master plan while awaiting the arrival of the goods from Thailand. While the demolition team worked, the design team simultaneously submitted construction drawings to the consultant for approval. The first consignment came after 45 days and the second two weeks after. Despite that, thanks to the relentless efforts of our team who worked day and night, we were able to deliver the project well in time and under all the parameters set. As a result, the Mekong Anantara received an Award for The Best Interiors, within six months of its commencement.
