The regular square space was transformed using clever block incorporation to add more details and enhance the interplay of light and shadow. The highlight of the design is a white staircase that resembles a continuous mountain range, providing visual focus and softening the linear construction while reflecting the brand’s concept.

Interactivity was a key aspect of the project, with an interactive area on the first floor reconstructing the relationship between the space and diners. The use of light and shadow created varying atmospheres for different functional areas, achieving a balance between space utilization and dining experience.

The second floor features a more private and intimate atmosphere, ideal for conversations over drinks or small gatherings. Private rooms offer versatility, making the restaurant suitable for banquets and team-building activities.

FUNUN LAB creatively integrated aesthetics and commercial logic, infusing the space with strength and roughness while maintaining an exquisite feeling. The design enhances the modern inspiration of cuisine and environment, making the grand space lively, interesting, and fully functional. This upgrade naturally enhances the brand’s vision and category.
