The Thriving Restaurant is located in Shanghai Lujiazui Financial Development Zone, adjacent to the Shanghai Center Tower and other three tall towers，and connected with the Shanghai Global Financial Center. At the beginning of design, the client suggested that although the restaurant was on the second underground floor, it was hoped that people still could feel the pleasant and open environment, not the stifling of underground space.
Whereas Thriving is a Cantonese restaurant, also taking into account the spatial advantages of the existing layer over 5 metres in height, we intend to introduce the concept of Lingnan traditional courtyard into the interior.
