Shehnai Banqueting Hall is arguably one of the most interesting projects GXI Group has taken on in recent years, particularly as our teams largely focus on office refurbishment and fit outs – however, this recent project has allowed us to demonstrate just how versatile and dedicated our designers, fabricators and installation teams are in tackling new requests. Shehnai Banqueting Suites are ideal for parties, conferences and celebrations of all kinds – and the family-run firm required a keen eye for commercial design to help bring their latest suites to life.
Free from the office furniture and partitions of old, our teams set to work to create a stylish yet professional lounge which balances culture and class. We opted for a clean, contemporary slant throughout – with ornate touches present, albeit used in a sparing fashion. It was important to the firm and to us that this project was brought to life to represent luxury and professionalism on an even keel – and that we would need to apply some of our office refurbishment know-how to bring much of the requested design to life.
We therefore endeavoured to maximise space and lighting – symmetrical spotlighting, chrome and silver finishes and a minimal colour scheme – creams, oaks and golds – run throughout, allowing users to move from conference to informal drinks with ease. It was our intention to blend much of what the space would be used for into one or two touches – really toning down the use of furniture and ornaments to present a wide-open, glistening space that would inspire the eyes as well as feel more than luxuriously comfortable.
