In Singapore, dining in has never been more needed in the climate of lockdowns and limited social interactions. The interior design of the restaurant responds by celebrating the culinary journey through a connection with place and artisan craft. The design takes inspiration from the building itself and pays homage to its eccentric historical character, a neo-classical and art deco hybrid architecture. The existing octagonal columns were a key impetus in the interior\’s geometrical language, continuing the rhythm whilst heightening a sense of history and place.
The flooring carries through in an eight-fold pattern and is crafted in a palette of terracotta tiles, pebble-wash concrete, and rose-gold inlay. This palette is an ordinary local reference but expressed differently through a magical geometric manipulation. The symmetrical layout, enhancing the geometric language, frames the pizza oven as the main protagonist. The bar, enshrining it, comes with a pleated GFRC face, warmly lit, and elegantly topped in Verde Apli marble. All materials are detailed to reduce wastage and designed with a sustainable conscious.
