Hook Lounge


With regard to the environment, the previous structure of the restaurant was isolated with next to nothing visual and physical connection with its nature. What this design strived to manifest was the integration of the restaurant and the coastline. The formal proposal of the link between the restaurant and the sea emerged as a circular path starting from the entrance to a dock. The dock is completely portable made of compostable organic material. The space between the indoor area of the restaurant and the sea was designed as a landscape encompassing the outdoor area of the restaurant and the landscape design. The curvy lines in the plan of the landscape provide cozy lounges for outdoor diners to gaze at the sea horizon while enjoying their semi-private gatherings. A continuous glass fa?ade facing the layers of the landscape and the sea was another formal manifestation of making the most of panoramic view considered as a means of visual transparency.
