HCA Art Studio
The site is a 500 Sq.Ft. office space in a Commercial building in Ahmedabad. The idea from the beginning was to create an interior space that is not only playful in itself, but is also inspiring and motivating to work in, for all the kids, teenagers & young adults inhabiting the space from time to time.
The Monday blues in these kids could certainly be revoked by the deep blue wall, which they would be gazing at while indulging in creating their art-pieces. This wall, used for exhibiting the art pieces, became the focal point of the entire space, around which all the remaining walls and furniture pieces were designed.
Being a painting aficionado himself, Nikhil (Founder, Studio Mishkan) who also happens to be one of the students of the client almost a decade back, came up with the idea of using the skill sets of the client’s current students to hand-paint some of the furniture and interior décor elements. These Furniture pieces included the Entrance door, Reception desk, Wall-clock and some other wall-art pieces done in Resin.
Putting some light on the design inspiration, Nikhil feels “Such a hands-on collaboration with the students adds to the uniqueness of the open planned space, which is evident each time I visit the space. I really hope the students, who collaborated with us, get the same feeling which I get every time I visit the studio- that I was able to give something back to the man who manifested a sense of creativity in me, during my childhood days”,
