Starry Night Dining

 StarEight is a new steak house situated at one of the warehouse buildings within a 100-year old factory compound in the city of WuXi, China. A historical re-vitalization design strategy was adopted to preserve most of the original building features with addition of new mezzanine structure to maximize the spatial potentials and turned the old warehouse into a hip F&B landmark.

2m high bull-shaped partition made by knifes & forks gave clue and defined brand identity to the restaurant. Verticality & spaciousness of the atrium dining zone were emphasized through full-height mirror stainless steel wine rack and crystal chandelier above the VIP table. Ceiling suspended fibre optics in violet colour created starry night effect to the leather-upholstered central & periphery booth seating areas.

Mezzanine Dining Zone

New built steel structure mezzanine floor was introduced to provide a semi-enclosed dining zone. VIP area with black & white bull-patterned ceiling-wall and floor lamps gave cosy & home feelings to the space, sliding semi-transparent curtains provided flexible partitioning for holding different events. The romantic starry night experience was finally completed at the black-mirrored washrooms and left an unforgettable memory to the customers.
