DESIGN THOUGHT AND INSPIRATION
ToiT is all about people and the vibes they share are central to the design philosophy. It’s a hot spot to gather, to unwind without trying too hard to fit in, or to have a great evening with friends, colleagues or just by yourself.
Our first thought was to capitalise on the volume that the premise had to offer. The challenge was to identify the structural elements so that we could eliminate the walls in between, therefore opening the place up. Once this was done the various levels looked into each other across the central courtyard three floors high. The visual as a resultant is stunning and engaging. You will always see people peering over the edge to get a glimpse of what’s going on at the other levels-it could be the brew tanks at the first level or the elevated stage at the next.
The multi-levels have been designed keeping various user groups in mind. Toit entertains all kinds of guests-from fine dining to a nice sunny morning space to a dance floor to just basic areas to hang at the lower level. There is something for everyone. The design offers a solution to what most people in the hospitality sector seek to resolve. Keeping the costs to manageable limits, the challenge was to scoop out spaces that exude warmth, friendly and inviting spaces that will be as vibrant as the users themselves.
