OPEN FLOORPLAN

Casual environment is introduced by different sizes of
crate boxes laid throughout space.
Visitors may sit anywhere, anyhow they want,
and interact with anyone in a way more comfortable way.

 

Ceiling Light Fixture

Hundreds of wood veneers above your head
flutters with AC breeze, casting flickering shadows
from light beneath them.

Tables and chairs are too formal.
Instead, feel free to sit anywhere you want,
anyhow you wish on the crates.

The columns in the restaurant were inspired
by the shape of pine trees.
