The architect refrains from direct modification, instead maintaining the newly formed dichotomy between the intervening elements and highlighting the existing features through the use of light and transparency. The 150-year-old masonry walls and columns have been left intact while subtle splints of steel provide the necessary support.
One of the feature is that the chef’s and sommelier’s stages (kitchen and drink counter) have been separated to clearly emphasize the management style. The guests may choose the zone according to the number of people and usage. Furthermore, matching each zone with characteristic pendant light, will produce unique and dimensional effect.
