Standing gracefully amidst towering buildings, a one-story jet-black house clad in deep-colored stone veneers harmoniously blends with the night. Lanterns hanging under the eaves sway gently in the evening breeze, casting a soft halo akin to moonlight, inviting curious souls to explore further. As the door opens, the delightful aroma of cooking wafts into the air. The sight of the Chinese characters of Golden Moon and the blue-white paper lanterns radiate a subtle glow, accompanied by the interwoven stone and bamboo curved end-wall and the tall emerald bamboo revealing its branches and leaves. It feels as if one has stepped back into the distant Edo period, leaving a profound and memorable impression on every guest with its rich Japanese antique charm.
Upon entering, neatly arranged seating in the shape of a crescent moon welcomes guests, where they come together to indulge in a typical hot pot, fresh vegetables, and meat. The guests enjoy moments of reunions, complete and fulfilling, akin to the sight of a full moon, with an unparalleled feast that delights their senses and tantalizes their taste buds.
Inspired by the Moon word in the brand Golden Moon, we centered our design on the image of a Full Moon. Incorporating the concept of Roundness, we skillfully infuse the theme of a Full Moon throughout the feature wall, the booth-style seating area, and the tableware for hot pot dishes. By integrating the symbolism of completeness and togetherness that the full moon represents, we aim to convey a sense of joy and harmony to every guest.
Our design caters to the positioning of a high-end Japanese hot pot restaurant. We artfully exploit modern building materials, such as natural stones, stone veneers, wood veneers, and metals, combined with traditional Japanese bamboo and lanterns to evoke a blend of ancient and modern Japanese Zen aesthetics.
Moreover, we actively embed the concept of seeking various forms of balance, performing a design that agreeably complements nature-inspired cuisine. By establishing a dialogue between the ingredients and the space, we create a bridge for interaction between diners and culinary creations, achieving a balanced and harmonious state among the ambiance, the people, and the food.
