After turning into a quiet, small alley from the bustling commercial area, a double-story building stands out of a cluster of old houses. Rich food fragrance floats in the air ushering people to visit. As soon as stepping into the door, the entire space is embraced by a cement wall coating. Vintage pendant lighting integrates with solid wood table sets to reveal a cultural vibe. The contrast between artistic approaches and traditional cuisine elicits the young age’s imaginations of the old times.
Altering the impressions of Taiwanese cuisine, we implemented a vintage coffee lounge idea in this restaurant. Cement wall coating and flooring laid a rustic tone associated with retro-styled table sets and light fixtures. It is a dynamic spirit that injects an old-fashioned soul into a brand-new space, just like the young owner’s willingness to promote traditional cuisine to the youth.
