Entry Description

Red , orange and yellow are the core warm tone colours permeated the spaces. Such vibrant colours combine space and create a high-energy feel. To tie in well with the whole ambience, white furniture is selected throughout the restaurant, creating a chic and memorable impression. Mirror is extensively used to enhance the interior spatial quality. Mirror is usually installed at the far end of the wall, so by reflection, the space can be doubled by visual illusion. A kind of ‘dancing’ graphics is applied for the walls and partitions. It base on the theme of this restaurant and proves adaptable, reappearing throughout the significant scheme in diverse appearances. The creation of an attractive 12m length environmental graphic panel acts as a visual interest and runs around the space a meter from the ground. The lighting design is divided into 2 zones. Bar Area produces the fluid shape ceiling planes with the spherical light to follow the separation of flooring, which makes a floating and relaxing environment. On the other hand, the linear and regular shape lighting with an alternative disposition of lighting panel above the dining area gives a more dynamic and vibrant composition to the viewers
