“ Stepping into the world of wilderness, where there is so much to explore about in nature”

The lines above sums up the theme, we choose for this restaurant cum brewery, with the concept of incorporating nature in human space. Green design in today's world is very essential due to lack of resources and global warming. Not effecting our environment instead creating another nature inside these walls adds up in making the environment more greener.

“But how can you live and have no story to tell”- Fyodor Dostoevsky

So, the facade of the restaurant basically depicts what your about to witness inside the restaurant. (Fresh brewery, congregation of people from different aspect of life and eco-friendly space)
“You didn't come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. You are not a stranger here.” -Alan Watts

STORIES is a place where nature is blending with the man made structures and together creating an ambience perfect for people to chill and have a nice time with their loved once over a freshly made beer. Double height ceiling and free from mechanical ventilation spaces gives each of the customer a feeling of openness as though there under the blue sky.

“When the Well is Dry, We’ll Know the Worth of Water.”– Benjamin Franklin

Just as water is important for living, this water body placed in the entry way, adds on to the theme of nature within human space. This pond have fishes and also makes the indoor environment cool as well as moist for the customer to have a chilled evening.

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” John Ruskin

Nature is best felt when your under the blue sky and wind blowing on your face. This place even gives one a feel of being under natures roof while your having your meal. We have given the users, the best of both world by having some seating under the roof to shade one self from heat during the day and under the natures roof during the night time when the ambience is perfect for dinner.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa

Keeping in mind the community and the fact that people cant survive without living in a community, we have created a space that celebrates the coming together of people from different works of life with different likes and dislikes. There are different types of sitting spaces for those in duos, groups and families.

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” ― Shannon L. Alder

As the quote above goes, each one of us have our unique features and that we glow in our own unique ways. The concept for these huge neon chandelier is very similar, glowing in the dark just like the fireflies in the nature, these chandelier are self glowing making the dim ambience of the restaurant lit up.
