“It was sixpence all over the place, but he looked up and saw the moon.”

Moon carries dream, together with an ideal atmosphere and style of life. People tends to seek for sixpence to fulfill their wallets rather than look up and cherish the moon. Thus, we hang a moon just beside the Lingjiao Lake, wishing each one of us can enjoy our lives after a busy day.

月亮的引力 | The gravity of the moon
PACO is a food fusion restaurant with three floors. Brunch and coffee are served on the first floor. The second floor is taken as the restaurant and bar while the third floor is an outdoor garden. All these different services aim at making customers enjoy an exquisite life at different time of a day.

In this project, we created a winding stair that could convey the gravity feeling to people. In that case, there is limitless possibility existing in this space. The winding stair is the core of the space, connecting all three floors. A giant moon is placed on the top of the stair, bringing the soft light to the ground. Stack effect can be created according to the angles of the stairs which improves air flow capacity.

时间的颜色 | Color of the time
酒是生命，是时间的礼物。色彩是媒介，是串联不同时空的线索。PANTONE 17-1540TPX 杏子白兰地/Apricot Brandy，我们选择这个颜色作为空间主色，既是因为它有较强的包容性，热情而不媚俗，也因为它是酸涩水果酿成的酒，象征再平凡的生活也能被赋予无限魅力，只是需要一个小小的契机。
Liquor has its life and is the gift of time. Color is the carrier that connected different spaces. The main color we chose for the space is PANTONE 17-1540TPX (Apricot Brandy), which is a color with inclusive nature and passionate trait. Also, Apricot Brandy is made of acer fruit, symbolizing that with an opportunity, tiny as a wine bucket, normal life can transformed into various splendid possibilities.

汇聚与融合 | Fusion
▼空间的边界，boundary of the space
Fusion creates the combination of materials, the connections in and out and also the overlapping of spaces. The original frame structure is kept in this project. The energy of space is released by taking the natural scene of the parks into the space according to the subtle arrangements of the windows and walls. Also, the red brick, conveying the historical meaning, is used as well as the modern metal material. Customers can experience the unique lively slow-paced life.

Carlo Scarpa 的几何叠级、精致的酒吧台以及复古车厢里的皮质卡座。我们让不同时空在餐厅里融合，为顾客制造独特的空间体验。
