Appreciations towards Geemo Design (contact: geemodesign@foxmail.com) for providing the following description:


It will create a space for people and dessert in the established architectural framework, so as to let the body in the space form a dialogue and interaction with the dessert, which then can be connected to perception and life.

For the entrance, it is also the outward extension of the interior. With the intervention of the space light, it makes people have the perception and direction to the interior in the face of the deep and steady entrance, so as to guide them into the mysterious box filled with light.

As for the interior of the space, it is organized in a more active way. The bar is set in the central area of the space, which is surrounded by moving lines. In this way, the waiters can take care of the surrounding areas, which is convenient for taking care of the needs of the guests and also enhances the mobility of people in the space. When it comes to the opening of the bar counter facing inward, it is connected with the kitchen through the ladder step formed by raising the ground, so as to separate the public and working areas while maintaining the integrity of the space.

Besides, the sunken bar ceiling and the bar form an L-shaped facade, which divides the space into two groups of passenger areas. As for one side, it uses the original wall to plan a more private functional area, so as to meet the needs of different customer groups.

We don’t want the relationship between desserts and guests to be short-term and temporary in this space, which should be the long-term and participatory activities to some extent.

As far as the tonality is concerned, we choose to abandon the sweet state of the dessert shop we have ever seen, since we will start from the perspective of men to combine the elegance of the dessert with an experimental attitude. As a result, it can create a space state of fortitude, fusion, softness, steadiness and slightly playfulness.

In terms of the gradual weakening of diffuse light through the wooden crossbar, it is to seek the extension of space, in which the arch on the other side has the same function in different forms. The arc formed is also the continuity of spheres and semicircles in other parts of space instead of just the imitation of form. As for the sequence of black metal strips, it is inserted in the lower opening of the arch, which echoes the wood brace, reflecting the continuity of space.

It will take black and gray as the main tone, which will also combine with ashy green and medieval green to run through it. Thus, it makes the space mood calm and restrained, leaving the dessert become the leading role in the space. In this way, space is presented in three-dimensional space in the form of plane, in which the block structure is arranged and combined in line with the visual effect.
