Co-founder of The Busride Studio, Ayaz Basrai studied Industrial Design at the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad. Known for his innovative design approach and out-of-the-box solutions, Ayaz specialises in hospitality, commerical and institutional projects. The Goa-based design studio prides itself in creating a set of longer iterative experiments in larger ideas and this approach has been extensively appreciated across all their projects.
When it comes to desgining spaces, Ayaz does not have a distinct signature style and his projects don’t stem from a theme, a choice of colour, flooring or material. His USP lies in doing things the unusual way. Most restaurateurs don’t even give him briefs, only a starting point – and patiently wait until he brings a new innovative idea to life. In a short span of time, Ayaz has completed more than 100 hospitality projects and some of them include a boutique hotel in Goa, the Toit brewery, a hotel in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and the Khyber restaurant in Dubai amongst many others.
