The enigmatic of the moon has always baffled us in awe.Imagine living in the cosmic space without weight and force，the spatial typology of anti-gravity and imbalance naturally surfaced.
This is the thinking process that inspired the spatial design for House On The Moon which is translated into diverse angular tilts and faceted forms.
House On The Moon是一家由米其林厨师掌舵的高端甜品店，其位于新加坡中央区的Great World购物中心（旧称：Great World City）。该项目是一个 “悬浮” 在商场中部的双层室内建筑。一层为就餐区（人流繁忙区域），二层设计为商业零售空间，供商家销售和包装产品。而该店则被设想为由宇宙中的空间碎片物体组成的一个太空时代建筑。
House On The Moon is a dessert restaurant helmed by chefs who are recognised in the Michelin Guide.Located in the Central District of Singapore,in the newly revamped Great World (formerly known as Great World City),it is a mixed-used development consisting of a 6-storey shopping mall.The project site is a double-storey unit “suspended” in a triple volume space accessible only via two link ways across each level.The restaurant sits on Level One where traffic movements are more prominent and Level Two is planned as a retail space for takeaways and merchandise. It was devised as a space age architecture that is formed by fragmented objects from the cosmic world.
The built environment is perceived as fragments of objects floating in the cosmic world.The multi-faceted design intention naturally informs of the many tilted angles and planes surfaces that fractures into an asymmetrical structure.
Due to the nature of the site being on a link-bridge，one of the key design considerations is to manifest on various vantage points of audiences‘ approach to the site.
The island concept of a dessert bar is imminent so as to response to the many perspective views from within the interiority of the site.In such instance，the food preparation activity is naturally highlighted as a form of performance in the space.
Two shards punctuated into the duplex site resulting in a continuous connection between the two floors and onto a base which is core foothold of the design，therefore it formulated the main dining space on the lower level.
Other random pieces behaved like floating objects around the dining space and upper floor which is designated as an extension of the core base.
Black glass is used for the bar countertop to create a deep but muted reflection of the structures and its lighting effects.The reflection adds on to the irregularity and bizarre visual connections to the surroundings.
The faceted form of the structures and fixtures depicts a bizarre nature of something foreign，further accentuated with lighting effects embedded into the surfaces which creates a mesmerizing spirit of mysterious-ness.It is amplified on the Level Two retail space as there are more visual penetration within the space.
The two main shards while they appear to be puncturing the floor，bear the brand logo in a intense and perplexing manner to echo the design spatial typology of anti-gravity and imbalance.
The constraints of standardized refrigerator equipment to display foodstuffs adds on the challenges in fracturing the form. Therefore，the equipment are positioned to be hidden from audience‘s views and further concealed with carpentry works in the same design language as the faceted surfaces.The edges are highlighted with LED rope lights to accentuate its fractured form.
Due to fire safety and Mall‘s regulations，there is no ceiling work allowed on Level Two.This has created much hindrance for visual merchandising as the lightings provided are not sufficient and not focused on the displayed products.The fixtures are therefore designed with embedded LED rope lights to cast highlights and create visual attention to the products on display.The solution to provide adequate lightings to the products has turned out to be an opportunity to enhance the design language that further emphasized on the faceted surfaces.
A streak of lighting encompasses the boundaries of the retail displays which it also behaves as a visual guidance to encourage movements into and within the retail space.At the same time，it serves as a continuation of the faceted forms that connects both fixtures and vertical shards as an overhead feature.
The texture of the lamination finishing has painstakingly taken obligation to be installed along with the grain directions of the faceted panelling.Each panelling comes in different sizes and directions which none of them are repetitive.
