Project Overview

The clients have two requirements in design style, one is mysterious and the other is desolate. The design team found inspiration from these young people who do not like to be limited by the rules and love baseball and used elements such as concrete and rusted iron to create an exotic atmosphere like Morocco. The project also echoes the name of the restaurant and baseball to create a brand-new look.


N5 Interior Design



Project Brief

The rusted iron door with a vicissitude opens the food hall, and the home plate, baseball, chariot, and irregular lines, together with the warm mood lighting, create a space on the first floor like an exotic Moroccan landscape. On the second floor, the smooth curves open a feast of food, and the rock slabs along the way make people feel like they are in a valley. The light falls like a cluster of stars, and the mirrored surface of the washroom resembles the moon. On the opposite is the balcony, where one can see the real moon and feel the romance of the night sky. Aesthetics is more than just a flashy design. The design team boldly uses plain materials to create a unique atmosphere that allows "beauty" to fill every corner even without much color. It is the philosophy of the design team to maintain a continuous passion for aesthetics, to be close to the clients' ideas, to consider the feelings of those who experience them, and to create a dialogue between space and design to create a qualitative environment.

Project Innovation/Need

The Moroccan design is a rare exotic style in Taiwan, with its rough and war-like desolation. The design team selected cement with a rough texture, and the rustic gray tones conveyed the natural charm to create irregular lines on site. In the end, the design team transformed the original rigid and boring tin house into a characteristic space through aesthetics and ingenuity. As for the selection of materials, the design team adopted a large amount of cement and rusted iron as the main materials and used light gray and dark red to create a new look for the space. A cement block is smashed on the red brick wall, spreading irregular lines and highlighting the logo light of the home-plate design on the wall. Meanwhile, the three private rooms on the second floor are named 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base, and the final design of the home plate at the checkout counter brings the food tournament to an end. As for the visualization of the design, to reveal the mottled and vague feeling, the design team created a flaky texture in the concrete part. The scaling areas are shimmering and inspire the diners' desire to enter the restaurant. The large areas of the interior, such as the edges of the walls and the bar cabinet, are also peeled off, and the irregular lines keep the visual fluidity, applying aesthetics to create a textured atmosphere.

Design Challenge

The original base is a dark-colored tin house, so it can be said that it has nothing. Considering that the fusion of iron and cement would cause the material to crack and crumble, the team started the transformation from the foundation. The design team first used H-shaped steel bars to support the structure and boldly splashed undried cement on the exterior walls. The gravity and cement created a natural flow of uneven and convex patterns, reinforcing the rugged Moroccan style and making the storefront stand out from other designs.


The building materials used are cement, red brick, first-grade melamine, plaster paint, and energy-saving LED lighting. The cement has a moisture-absorbing characteristic, which can avoid the problems caused by the humid environment. On the other hand, plaster paint is a water-based environmentally friendly material, which is formaldehyde-free, easy to clean, and can avoid maintenance problems in the future. As for ventilation, since the project is a hot pot restaurant, in addition to the air-conditioning system, the outdoor terrace on the second floor can also provide a comfortable space for diners.

This award celebrates innovative and creative building interiors, with consideration given to space creation and planning, furnishings, finishes, aesthetic presentation and functionality. Consideration also given to space allocation, traffic flow, building services, lighting, fixtures, flooring, colours, furnishings and surface finishes.
