The Bailian store is located in a curved store on the first floor of the mall with a folded site plan and a narrow frontage. But you can have a special experience if you enter into it.
The original site is also a restaurant in order to reduce the transformation of the kitchen pipeline, we try to retain the original location of the kitchen. After removing the long and narrow kitchen on one side, the floor plan is more narrow and winding, and we thought about how to give people a rich experience in a limited space.
Inside and Outside
In order to break the original spatial order, two semi-elliptical blocks were inserted diagonally, and the original space became rich, with the “indoor” inside the elliptical block and the “outdoor” outside the block. According to the trajectory of the inserted ellipse, the block is split into two parts, the lower 420mm high is the seat, and the upper is the inward gable. The cut part of the block becomes a passage and a movable seat.
The columns are inserted to serve as the support of the overall structure. The seats are bordered by growing plants to create the feeling of dining under the trees. The green transparent acrylic is used as a partition in the partial position to create a certain privacy between the seats, but without blocking the sight line.
Through the continuous deformation and functionalization of the two “semi-elliptical” blocks, the space is gradually clarified and enriched.
The relevant thoughts about PHO
The relevant thoughts about pho in Vietnam is the open and airy space, the blurred boundary between indoor and outdoor, the endless tropical greenery, the woven straw hats and thatched roof…but how to express these relationships in a first floor store with no natural light and limited space?
