The DesiCreative | Kotak Mahindra Design A LobbyScape Contest

You have always looked at a space and wondered how it could have been better designed or utilised. Lobby spaces are not only a welcome area for guests to walk in to, but are also important communincation spaces which must immediately inform the guest of what we stand for and at the same time make them feel wanted and comfortable. Now, Kotak Mahindra Bank, along with DesiCreative, is giving you a super cool space to design a Lobby Scape. Go wild, but be functional. Who knows, your design may end up in a real life environment in the heart of Mumbai city.

While you mst go completely wild in your imagination, each entry must still be a functional space. The winning design will be selected based on the smooth integration of usability with striking imagination, creating a Lobby Scape that is iconic and memorable.

To be considered, the space must designed for accommodating an uber cool branch, a coffee lounge, meeting areas and ofcourse greeting lobby.

Kotak Mahindra offers a cash prize of Rs 100,000/- for one winning entry. 5 other excellent entries will win book vouchers worth Rs 10,000/- each.

    Yes it will be interesting…

  2. A few questions:

    1.In the project description you state, “To be considered, the space must be designed for accommodating an uber cool branch, a coffee lounge, meeting areas and of course a greeting lobby.”

    What is an uber cool branch?

    2. Is the entire ground floor to be considered?

    3. What are vouchers worth 10,000 Rs?

    4. What is the goal of this exercise?

    5. Is there a presentation format?

    1. By uber cool We mean a premium experience for high end customers. Not to be a typical band branch but an overall experience centre where the customer is there for her/his transaction but experiences a different level of service. Like for eg: instead of the customer walking up to a teller counter for collecting cash or demad draft, the service manager will seat her/him in the lounge and handle the transaction on her/his behalf.
    2. Yes the entire ground floor is to be considered. Expect for fixed areas which cannot be broken down like AHU, Electrical room, Strong room, lift areas and stairways.
    3. Amazon vouchers
    4. The goal is to create a different innovative experience for customers which is driven by a bit of technology and some amount of personalised human touch. The purpose of the contest is to crowd source ideas and give young mind a chance to think something out of the box.
    5. Not really. We are expecting a concepts to be presented, not necessarily in a particular format.

    I hope this answers all.

    Dear admin, kindly update us on the status of this competition.

    Hi Sharon. Unfortunately Kotak Mahindra, who are supposed to evaluate the results and hand over the promised rewards, haven’t yet figured out the winners yet. I am pushing them. I guess if we don’t get something by mid-September, we will probably have to call it quits with them.
