Restaurant & Lounge
It was established to assimilate the growing demand of a new casual bistro that is well-designed and stylish yet informal.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design intent is to reminisce the 1920s classic American atmosphere in an enjoyable environment. The use of dark timber panel, exposed white brick, timber floor, mosaic, classic furniture, and vintage light fittings, illustrates the timeless style while the integration of materials such as rustic metal gives the space a more contemporary look. Adorned with vintage pieces such as gramophone and suitcases from the owner's personal travel collectables, the richness of elements offers a profusion visual stimulation.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The restaurant is divided into 4 zones; semi outdoor dining area, indoor dining, a private room, and bar with its stunning 12m length granite top bar counter featuring a large mural and a DJ station. A wine display featuring wine crates neatly lined against a rustic metal rack is exhibited amidst the dining area, offering yet another visual attraction while letting the customers easily choose the wine. A careful application of lighting enhances a dramatic yet cozy ambiance throughout the space. The stretch of metal framed window along the facade allows a fusion of daylight into the interior while presenting an unobstructed view of the outside.
