Tin Tin Restaurant & Bar In Chandigarh By Renesa Architecture Design Studio

Tin Tin Restaurant & Bar by Renesa Architecture is a flurry of sweeping arches, contoured ceilings, and morphing vistas as the interior volume feel at once disarmingly exotic and naggingly familiar. The curved back stools seem to be a direct copy of Tom Dixon’s Cassia collection amongst a few other things we can’t quite put our finger on. While we take no pleasure in this, acknowledging copying is important as it’s becoming increasingly difficult to stay on top of it all.

The project is found within the city of Chandigarh, a little-known architectural pilgrimage in India. Here, during the 1950s, Le Corbusier was given full reign to exact his own design rationale, much like a visual manifesto. The city is teeming with modernist civic buildings and surprising design oddities.

With this context, Renesa looked to another modernist great, Carlo Scarpa, with their maze of terrazzo a clear homage to his Olivetti flooring in Venice. The floor-to-wall tiling is elaborate and at times disorientating, as the team themselves describes it, it’s “a geometric mosaic matrix residing within the spaces, a permanent resident that earmarks the walls, portals, and various surface finishes to instil a sense of visual dynamism.”

Grotto-like, Tin Tin Restaurant shell is derived from the stippled appearance of cast on-site slivers of Indian stone and terrazzo that were painstakingly hand-laid over six months by a brigade of stonemasons and casters.

The deep shades of jade, umber brown, veined white, and greige bespeckle the spaces to create pockets of hues across the bare montage. Now that’s artisanship.

With European and Indian cultural references colliding throughout this grotto-like design, Tin Tin Restaurant offers something unique that could perhaps have only happened in a city of contradictions such as Chandigarh.
