Project Brief

We can see a large forged staircase when coming into the restaurant through a separate entrance. The black bricks and ceiling, the cultured-stone wall, and dangling lights, present one of a kind porch area. On the other side of the seating area, creates the sedate and fashioned lobby atmosphere on the limited-space first floor by using black and red couch and chairs, dark wood veneered wall, and the painting of skyscrapers.

Project Need

After walking along the staircase to the second floor, we can see the dining area where is wide and obstructiveness-free. In the open space, the designer distinguishes the mechanisms by designing different ceilings and bricks. At the right side of the bar, the fashioned bar area is built by installing the floor paved with small black-and-white mosaic bricks, the square metallic ceiling, the forged metal bar, the red bar stools, and colorful liquor.

Design Challenge

The main colors, in the wide dining area, are red, black, and brown. Using the same design ideas on the first floor, the designer puts the long couch which is close to wall and structural column. On the other hand, the different square, round, and long tables are installed on the same area. The varied table-and-chair sets, with the round mirrors on the ceiling, endow the space rich in fun and changes.


By using the iron products, wooden materials, glass, mirrors, cultured stones, and furniture, the designer ingeniously presents the abundant and composite quality. The design skills connect the interactive relationship between human and space, making the restaurant become the major role integrating employees’ passion and clients’ smile.
