Shalimar Indian Restaurant were looking to expand their business in to the shop next door. So they came to us to help achieve this. They had seen signs in London which they had admired; and came to us with some photos and a printed menu. Working with the guys at Shalimar, we digitised their logo from their menu. We then set to creating a new Shalimar shop front and sign. Therefore this meant designing a package that would exceed their exceptions, using their photographs for inspiration.
Shalimar is a stunning, contemporary Indian Restaurant in Waterlooville, who pride themselves on their innovative cuisine from all across India. They provide truly impeccable service and gorgeous interiors in which you can relax and enjoy your meal.
The new Shalimar shop front, sign, and more
Firstly, we installed a full shop front, spanning both stores. This included 5 metre long, single panes of glass each side. As a result, customers get an unobstructed view. We powder coated the custom, all aluminium shop front to match the sign. On the front is an outdoor menu box. In addition, there are doors for the entrance and fire escape.
Likewise, the sign covers the full width of the building. It has fret cut wording, which is LED lit. In the centre of the sign, there is a 2.5 metre extruded curve. Internal LEDs illuminate the individual 3D letters. Beneath the sign is a huge, full width remotely operated awning, which shades from the sun on beautiful days. The central extended curve, wrapped with the Shalimar logo, draws people to the entrance.
Finally inside, we created CNC routed, flame polished acrylic panels to adorn the top of the eating booths. We decorated the dividers with gold and etched cut vinyl graphics.
