Deep blue Lazuli and Afghan flavors: Kutchi Deli Parwana by Studio Gram

Deep blue Lapis Lazuli and Afghan flavors Kutchi Deli Parwana by Studio Gram - HomeWorldDesign (1)

Kutchi Deli Parwana project, an Afghan restaurant is the achievement of the designers from Studio Gram from Adelaide, Australia. The owners have migrated from Afghanistan to Adelaide, developing later the Parwan restaurant to share the richness of Afghan flavors. The richness of the azure blue color speaks of the Afghan culture, this blue being widely used in the Afghan traditional architecture. This color is specific to Lapis Lazuli, a deep blue mineral, located primarily in Afghanistan. For the record, this mineral was used as makeup for eyes in the ancient world, especially popularized by Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt.

The space where the restaurant is arranged is very small, of 45 square meters, the architect Graham Charbonneau dividing the space by creating a facade that masks the kitchen. The facade and walls are decorated with mural paintings with traditional models and designs but also with pictures of actors from Bollywood. The designers from Mash have worked in collaboration with Studio Gram, who took charge of the traditional artistic part of the project. The owner speaks about Kutchi Deli Parwana: “… a story of migration and new beginnings, a celebration of the back streets of Afghanistan. a shop inside of a shop, with trinkets, tiles and truck art. the interiors are a reflection of the food being served and the places being celebrated.” Photography David Sievers
