Summary: Capturing the Essence of “Jasmine”
Mo Jasmine · Green
Even the smallest pavilion can mirror the beauty of a sunset, and natural skin surpasses elaborate makeup.
A deep green art wall serves as a frame, with glistening glass bricks functioning as both a screen and entrance. Harmonizing hues, transparent light, and shadows create an ethereal and captivating interior space, inviting people to step inside.
Jasmine understands my thoughts, sending its fragrance from the veranda.
The deep green color extends from the entrance into the restaurant’s interior. Textured dark green marble, coupled with warm lighting, establishes an atmosphere where tranquil notes whisper in the air, providing an escape from the hustle and bustle. The bar’s jadeite-like lighting perfectly complements the subtle ambiance of light luxury.
Mo Jasmine · Fragrance
Rabindranath Tagore once said, “The flower sweetens the air with its perfume, yet its last service is to offer itself to thee.”
LDH Design focuses on spatial impression, experiential journey, and overall comfort, creating an environment that feels surrounded by the scent of flowers, offering comfort, relaxation, and joy.
The interior design follows the length and depth of the original structure, placing private dining rooms with enhanced privacy at both ends. The lounge area and kitchen are positioned in the center, connected by a long corridor resembling a vine. This allows each area to be independent yet interconnected.
The poet Julian once said, “The moon rests upon the lychee tree, while people wander amidst the fragrance of Jasmine.” LDH design enhances chiaroscuro through variations in forms and colors in the overhead space, intensifying visual interest as one moves through the area.
The cleverly cut sloping roof expresses traditional architecture in a modern way. The illuminated thin film on the slope, resembling a skylight from childhood memories and symbolizing the fragrance of jasmine, adds visual interest at every step. The elegant atmosphere accompanies customers wherever they go.
Mo Jasmine · Elegance
The fully bloomed jasmine has a purity akin to snow. Upon fluttering curtains, the shadow of jasmine intertwined with moonlight creates a charming scene. LDH design combines lighting and materials to create a high-class living atmosphere.
The warm fireplace attracts the gaze, adding just the right amount of warmth to the serene space. Beyond dividing the space, flickering lights naturally bring people together, creating a sense of relaxation and happiness.
The gray-blue color scheme of tables, chairs, and flooring enhances fluidity in the elegant atmosphere. Soft lighting gently illuminates the entire area, providing privacy and security for conversations and gatherings.
Strategically placed ceiling lights not only illuminate the space’s framework but also highlight dining tables, creating a pleasant atmosphere and directing focus to the delicious food. This reflects the flower language of jasmine, conveying true and sincere love.
Carefully chosen colors, forms, and materials create an atmosphere and establish spatial impressions. The space guides, inspires, and heals individuals. Designing for the space is a continuous process of refinement, understanding, and elevation, embracing simplicity and cultivating a sense of poetry to savor the beauty of the present.
