Design by Mahsa completes a stunning restaurant interior project

  • The design concept is inspired by people’s tradition, flavors, climate, landscape, art and culture.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Creative and Innovative Interior Boutique Company – Design by Mahsa has successfully completed and handed over its latest project to Bulldozer Group, the owners and operators of Sand Restaurant.

The newly opened contemporary restaurant, Sand, specializes in fine dining and serves cuisine from the Middle Eastern region.

Tradition, flavor, climate, landscape; in addition to the art and culture of the region, it was considered to represent the result of the restaurant’s interior design concept.

The natural sites and way of life of certain countries such as the Charyn Canyon in Kazakhstan and the yurt camps of the Silk Road have inspired the color schemes, illustrations, shapes, textures and materials used in design.

The interior design uses neutral color palettes that bring out the beauty of the natural landscape aura in the space. This is also noticeable in the choice of materials. For example, the ceiling of the restaurant is representative of the shape of the rocks of Charyn Canyon.

In terms of artwork, the entrance is shaped like sand dunes in the desert; while the entrance signage on the rear panel is also designed to reflect the mountains.

The choice of decoration reflects a unique craftsmanship. The use of dried flowers, used over the centuries for decoration and even for medicinal purposes, is also an expression of the climate of many countries whose dishes are served on the restaurant menu.

The dining areas are interspersed with lush greenery enhancing the aesthetics and feel of the natural ambience – a typical feature of all Design by Mahsa projects, aimed at enhancing well-being and sustainability.

Speaking after the project was handed over, Founder and Design Director – Mahsa Gholizadeh said: “Working on the Sand Restaurant project has been exciting, and I am particularly pleased that we delivered on time and exceeded customer expectations for quality and value. The restaurant operates in a particular niche, and so we had to be careful to pay attention to every detail, as we incorporated tradition with flavor into an enduring masterpiece.

The Sand Restaurant is a contemporary oriental-inspired restaurant featuring Emirati, Moroccan, Uzbek, Georgian and other Middle Eastern culinary delights and dishes in a chic, modern setting – brought to life by Design by Mahsa.
