Gingko Restaurant design
The starting point of this restaurant design is a blacked out space. The public spaces are considered a river or a stream along which one “floats” through the depth of the 1200m2 black space. The stream is entered directly from the elevators which are the only access to this restaurant on the 4th floor of the Gingko Restaurant Building.

Green Pavilion_Restaurant, Croatia

Green Pavilion Restaurant
The most important element and the inspiration for this project is the location itself, with extremely high quality existing vegetation, which is densely distributed throughout the plot and gradually diluted out toward the eastern edge. The idea of the new Pavilion / Restaurant is to construct a space by mapping the area of high quality trees and to define the remaining territory for construction.
