A French dining experience that takes you to the realm of a sanctuary. The Neoclassicism and Art Deco eras have highly influenced my choice of material palette and design, from marble checkered flooring to mosaic-textured glass. By utilizing the present pillars in the layout structure of the building, I redesigned them with reference to the Doric order.

I developed these designs further with my distinct imagination and turned them into a modernized sanctuary for a French fine dining experience. I also designed an outdoor dining experience, where customers get to envision the mood of dining on a rooftop sanctuary garden. 

Being able to successfully harmonize a mythical concept into a modernized urban setting was the great achievement to this project. It is proof that we can constantly proceed with modernization but still carry a legacy of the past and convert our fantasy to reality.
