To rebrand a traditional Chinese restaurant
In this project, we would like to give a new image to the brand that reflects the its continuous evolution. The elegance of traditional Chinese style is reinterpreted into today’s modernity and to fit into the overall space with a touch of French style.
Usage of desaturated color tone
Instead of massive use of red color in traditional Chinese restaurant, we have applied navy blue, grey and white as the main color palette to feature the elegance in a desaturated state. The touch of matte gold color offers a grand atmosphere with a modern sense. Marble stone corresponding to wooden linings symbolizes the fusion of new elements to Chinese culture.
The use of old materials in a new way
To give a hybrid of Chinese tradition and French style, the elements in traditional Chinese restaurant were applied in a new way. We have conserved the round table settings in the restaurant and extensively adopted wooden materials in the interior. The wooden materials correspond with white or marble materials to soften the atmosphere and give a touch of French palatial grandeur.
Combination use of old-fashioned floorings that were commonly used in the past. The interior space is differentiated into several areas through the use of two floor patterns.
Sea view of Victoria Harbor as the focal point
Hong Kong's prized landmark-Victoria Harbor and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre can be viewed from the restaurant. We have designed wide windows for customers to enjoy the sea view and allow entry of sunlight in order to open up the space.
The aesthetic element of Chinese culture
In the VIP dining room, the delicate wall illustration of flower blossom becomes the focal point of the interior to give a touch of Chinese aesthetics.
