House of Salad restaurant by Metaphor, Bangkok – Thailand

August 19th, 2013 by retail design blog

The idea for this restaurant in Bangkok, designed by Thai architecture firm Metaphor was a ‘glass house in an artist’s backyard’. Through the unique use of color, light and geometry, Metaphor has carefully choreographed the 140 sqm space to feel like a relaxed creative’s den. Paintings, sketches, paper with musical notes and even instruments help create this engaging atmosphere. A key feature in the middle of the layout is an open cooking table, inviting guests into the space and encouraging them to experiment menu options with the chef.

With a seating capacity of 52 the dining area can be divided to cater for private parties, through the closing of a large curtain. The materials and lighting help to accentuate the sensory environment, the walls are a pale grey brick and soft, diffuse up-lighting indirectly fills the space along the metal arch detail. Several balloon pendant lamps hang from the exposed ceiling reflecting off large tilted mirrors.
