This project is a renovation project. The original building was a modern concrete arhitecture built from the 1980s. We repositioned the client’s existing brand and fully utilized the European 19th century Victorian architectural style, decorative materials, and elegant colors in this project. At the same time, we blended the neoclassical aesthetics of the late 18th century, integrating the flower shop with the restaurant. Laying out the functions of the flower shop, bar, banquet, dining, French window sashes, etc., we created a retro Eden style, showcasing a sensational feeling of classicism, elegance and grandeur.
