Urrak, Goa – India

Share

Urrak is a child of the river, Nerul. It is imagined as a collection of islands made of sporadic formations of silt collected by the river over time. As the overall space is very linear and straightforward overlooking the river, the islands are designed as irregular geometries in the space so as to make the experience of navigating more fluidic and interesting. Each of them serve a particular purpose like a bar, a welcome desk, standing ledge, planters, outdoor grill, high table for work, live music areas
etc.
One such formation is the bar that gently curves at one end turning into a planter and a work desk as it flows outside. It’s form parallels the patterns of the root above it to create a unified visual language.
Just like its name, a drink derived from the locally abundant cashew, the space also reflects the quintessential goan habitat with locally available materials but used in new innovative different ways to create a bold spatial language.
