Swarnamahal Jewellers, with a history of 75 years of successful enterprise, commissioned the refurbishment and interior design of its flagship outlet in Sea Street as the first undertaking in revamping its island-wide branches. As the market leader in the retail jewellery sector, Swarnamahal’s requirement was to create a bold statement design that reflected their illustrious legacy.
The design features a gilded doorway that emphasizes its entrance as a golden gateway. The boldness of the exterior expression ensures the design stands out from the surrounding urban infill. The design draws inspiration from the local character, embracing a minimalist approach with contemporary spatial elements derived from tropical architecture. Focusing on functionality and optimal usage of the tight, linear site, the interior design prioritizes internal circulation with its zoning. Space making as well as the carefully curated furniture pieces derive inspiration from the local arts, crafts, materials, and techniques infusing the interior with a unique cultural essence. The result is a harmonious and inviting space that reflects Swarnamahal’s legacy while embracing modern aesthetics.
