This time, we design to make an abandoned garage into a cafe along the Naked Valley in the Mount Mogan Scenic Area. The project design focuses on creating a unique harmony with the nature, because the garage is surrounded by many family hotels and there’s great commercial space for antique elements.

There is a tiny island in Venice which is full of colorful houses. Legend goes that the houses on the island are painted in strong colors to guide fishermen to find their homes in thick foggy days. Perhaps in the green village, there should also be a place of leisure that one can see at a glance.

Our designenters from color, expression with bulk structure, lighting atmosphere supplemented. An l-shaped pink wall as the entrance. In the lower right corner, you can see the white structure inside. The white door cover structure has even broken through the pink package, which makes it more naturally for people to enter。In the distance, you can see the production of the internal barista through the window on the left wall. Customers can feel the atmosphere without entering.The highlight of the interior is a neon tube that spans the entire powder wall, which is a strong visual impact in the dusk。There is a small yard in the front. In which white cement grows out of the ground to form steps, low walls, flower beds, and platforms.

There is pink with texture sense for the inner space, the top and the wall. The ground is continued with the white cement, including the bar table, the chairs that are against the wall, and the background wall, which intersperses and cooperates with the pink wall to draw the structure. We retains the prototype of the beam and pillars.

As for the bar table, we divide the function areas with the structure, garnished with retro lamps. There is floor glass in front of the table, through which the customers can admire the scenery in the distance. In the dry area of the restroom, it is a pink zone. The mirror is of black iron structure, the opposite is arc with light belt as mood light, and it makes it interesting to see the outside faintly.
