The shop is 400 square feet, larger than most stalls selling paan in Karachi. The interiors of the shop were made very opulent to try & remove the stigma associated with paan eating.
The main attraction is the prep table where the paans are made in front of customers.
After the initial discussions were done regarding the workings of the prep area we had to see how it would function most efficiently while being easy to maintain. Each workstation has twenty one containers for the ingredients required for all the combinations. The work tops are made of materials that do not react to the lime used in paan.
Lighting played a major role in giving the shop a “rich” feel, as did the materials we used.
