DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cafe FLO Taikoo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Restaurant

INSPIRATION:
Color blue is widely used on European defensive weapons or clothing. In the costume, the French royal family's accession to the throne or the main portrait of the prestigious family wore a blue cloak to represent the highness of the family. The color blue becomes the symbol of nobility and the wisdom of elite talent. The color tone of this cafe is inspired by the elegance of the European noble "blue". The overall design was base on French classic plus Art Deco style. The chandelier, in particular, is the honeycomb structure, which can be traced back to Art Deco period as a symbolic icon.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Brasserie Flo is a 150 years old restaurant group headquartered in Paris with over 300 restaurants worldwide. Cafe Flo is one of Flo Group’s subsidiary brands in Beijing. It is located in Beijing's Sanlitun area. This area now is one of the most prosperous commercial areas in Beijing with lots of shops and restaurants.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The food delivered out and the dirty dishes collected in use different traffic flow to maximize the work efficiency while avoiding the interference of each other. The widows are kept without any obstruction to give the diners to emotionally feel the seamless merge between the indoor and outdoor environment. The window seating in front of the bar is magically placed for guests who is waiting for the take out food or guests who just want to have quick coffee and bakery food.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January of 2016 and ended in July of 2016. The location is in Beijing.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The space is based on utilizing simple straight European mouldings with a little touch on the curvilinear elements. The goal is to achieve an inviting, bright, and elegant dining experience. Art Deco decorative elements are used throughout the space such as the multi-layering pilaster, wall panels and honeycomb shape pendant light fixtures. Open pore paint on walnut is applied onto the front bar. The use of mirror with bevel-edge on wall is to expand the horizontal space visually to balance the existing double ceiling height and narrow space.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The total area is 314 square meters with its highest ceiling point at 8.4 meters and lowest ceiling point at 3.3 meters above finishing floor.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The existing site has a narrow and double height space. We retain the original double height to create a spacious atmosphere. This space was previously used as a hot pot cafe before acquired by the 116 years old Brasserie FLO from Paris. Different shades of blue are used in the space to establish a sense of spontaneous and relaxing dining experience for young diners.

CHALLENGE:
When the space is obtained, the structural beams are neither symmetrically placed nor centring to any vertical axis in the space. This creates a difficult situation for us to design the ceiling. At the end, we decided to warp the beams with wood panels and paint, and some were transformed into arch beam to soften the visual senses. Unconventional way of placing the pendant light fixtures was used to give a sense of spontaneity. The arrangement of seating was carefully planned to maximize the number of seating to 75 seats indoor and 30 seats out door with flexible arrangement to suit any guest's request.
