Upcycling to Create an Eclectic Indian Food Empire

The task for Reworks in its tenant improvement project for the Bollywood Theater locations in NE and SE Portland was to retrofit existing building shells to create a welcoming space that would help portray the vibrant color, high energy atmosphere of Indian street food culture, as well as to establish itself in neighborhoods already densely occupied with restaurants. 

The result are places of comfortable, rustic spaciousness, with lots of windows to let in natural light and views of the busy street outside.  Open kitchens bustling with activity are reminiscent of a street food vendor’s stall.
