| From the submission|
With the rise of cafe business, ‘Rhapsody Music Café’, located at Chattogram city, is somewhat different in its attempt to combine music and food. Many legendary band artists like popstar Azam Khan, L. R. B’s Ayub Bachchu, Nagar Baul’s James, and so forth were inspired by western music, hence created many timeless songs. With the noble purpose of keeping those classical bands alive, when the client consulted with the architect about the interior design of the café, the architect decided that why not Rhapsody Music Café becomes a meeting place for artists and music lovers. So the architects designed the café regarding this concept which makes the interior space delightful.
There is a fair-sized stage for music artists to perform. The backdrop of the stage is made up of an exposed brick wall and decorated with a variety of musical instruments used in western music which makes the whole restaurant unique. The other walls are decorated with pictures of various eminent artists to inspire the new generation of music lovers. There is also a bare-faced concrete surface at one portion of the café where mirror glass is installed so that the restaurant looks more spacious.
The interior concepts, wall finishes, minimalist furniture, warm lighting, music, all of these give the cafe a personality which dictates the enjoyable experience that customers look for.
