Draw inspiration from Le Corbusier’s Notre-Dame-du-Haut.
YOU is a three-story space located in the Lize district, drawing design inspiration from Le Corbusier’s Notre-Dame-du-Haut. LDH Design employed unconventional spatial structures and added layers to create a dynamic and ever-changing dining environment.
A portion of the façade features glass curtain walls, while a folded arrangement of brass metal panels creates a recessed and non-conventional entrance, defining a distinctive and bold entryway. The strong visual contrast between the brass metal panels and the glass curtain walls is evident. Linear light strips on the walls illuminate the intricate texture of the brass metal panels while guiding people towards the deeper area of the space.
Passing through the entrance hall, guided by partial walls, visitors’ attention is immediately captivated by the artistic suspended fireplace upon entering the interior space. The uniquely designed fireplace serves as a visual focal point, resembling a sculptural artwork within the space. It creates a pleasant, relaxed, and warm atmosphere in the dining environment.
LDH DESIGN has strategically placed several metal screens within the space, separating two different functional areas in a soft way.
Dinning area is on the one side of the main lobby, while the bar and afternoon tea lounge is on the opposite side. The space does not have clearly defined boundary walls but rather adopts an open format to cater to the users’ different activities such as dining, drinking, and afternoon tea, which take place during different time periods. In the evening, illuminated by golden lights, the translucent stone on the bar counter creates a sparkling crystal effect. The intricate and rich textures is highlighted with golden light hints adding to the rustic dark-colored walls.
Natural power of Eastern sentiments
The third-floor terrace, oriented towards the south and north directions, serves as an extension of the indoor space. The extensive terraces with beautiful views of city provide more dining options for diners.
