Romantic Practicality
A space that is both flexible yet non-mechanical is a task that restaurant romantics may find challenging. To marry practicality and atmosphere is an aspect that Marriott visitors respectfully require.

Solution

A space that is both flexible yet non-mechanical is a task that restaurant romantics may find challenging. To marry practicality and atmosphere is an aspect that Marriott visitors respectfully require.  


Creating an element that in itself produces both an atmosphere and a sense of order was an essential design decision. Our design takes the form of a ceiling sculpture, extruded down to effectively subdivide the space. A play with light and materiality to manipulate form lures the senses into a romantic state. 

A play with material translucency is a key element of our design. Translucent concrete allows a visible placement highlighting the interesting movements that occur in a restaurant setting. The ability to see a chef in one zone, but hear him as you pass into another forms a desired state of discovery.
