Commercial Facilities


The facility is a French restaurant built in a downtown building's basement. A broad collection of selected wines is the restaurant's confident feature.
The lighting concept is a secret cave where precious treasure is stealthily hidden.
Flat, monotonous overlighting is carefully avoided. The designer emphasized beautiful textures on wooden beams, stone tiles and other natural materials in the structure so that people would feel as if they were in an underground wine-storage cave.

In the nighttime, light inside the restaurant come out through the skylight and tell people on the street that there is something precious under their feet. Conceptually hidden, yet brilliantly outstanding.

Lighting made a secret cave under the bustle of urban streets.
