The VUE Hotel brand exemplifies the new wave of locally-rooted boutique hospitality experiences, a global cultural phenomenon now finding roots in China. “VUE” in French means “view” or “a way to see” and VUE hotels aspire to present a fresh way of “seeing” hospitality design and experiences. VUE’s DNA upends conventional Chinese notions of hospitality and is defined by 4 core pillars: 1. Encourages Socialising; 2. Transcendence of culture; 3. Delightful & Whimsical; 4. Relaxed & Inviting.

Damascegliere is a restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of the Brera district in Milan. The conversion, in a two-floor brick vaulted warehouse-type building, has large windows overlooking the now glamourous Corso Garibaldi. The design concept for the restaurant is built around two long counters where clients can sit facing either the barman or the chef at work. The outdoor table has the same peninsula-shaped counter giving a continuity between the two spaces. On warm days the arched window opens up to make the inside of the restaurant completely accessible from the pedestrian road. The kitchen is partially visible through semitransparent glass. New services have been installed leaving the brick vaults untouched; a sophisticated air circulation system provides the possibility of keeping different functions such as the bar and kitchen in the same environment as the main seating area. In the basement the absence of windows and natural light is compensated by luminous shelves and mirrors over a continous padded bench.

The project consisted in creating a high-end cocktail bar through the intervention of a basement in an inconspicuous building at Colonia Juarez, Mexico City.
A downward stairway brings you to the front door. Upon entrance, dimmed lighting creates a different atmosphere from that of the outdoors, helping the user to quickly forget the almost generic appearance of the building’s facade.

Stones is a 25,450 square foot gambling hall, restaurant, and bar – in essence a boutique casino. The building is an expansion and total renovation of a former Salvation Army warehouse that had been vacant for years, and is the first project of this kind to combine and relocate two existing card room licenses under one roof. Citrus Heights is a small city sixteen miles east of Sacramento – within California’s Central Valley.

Among a few other firms, Nupera takes place in the historical Le Petit Champs appartment building located in Beyoglu, in the bohemian part of Istanbul facing a beautiful view of historical landmarks behind the Galata Bridge. Nupera is an entertainment complex consisting of cafe, restaurant and bars.
We had designed Nupera several times since 2004. Always the same client, but each time with a different theme, a different concept. After a break we came together again to create something a bit controversial this time. Something with less design apprehension…

The brief called for a takeaway seafood bar, serving the 9-to-5 office worker for lunch and dinner, directly to the street and to a small dine-in crowd. The client knew that he wanted ‘something different’, something that would stand out against other venues in the area and unlike other typical seafood bars. The small site needed to work at maximum efficiency, with a service point to the street key to the operation of the business. The front of house space is divided into two – a sterile and clean service side; and a textural, inviting space for customers. The venue is casual, but refined, considered and unique. Efficient back of house operation and service to the street was prioritised. The kitchen layout was designed in close collaboration with the client and chef to ensure maximum efficiency throughout prep, cooking and service to the interior and street.

The interior design that converted legendary Zorbas Bar to Chapel is part of our strategy to return to our #CycladicRoots. This has to do with giving back to the Cycladic interior and exterior spaces the elementary, indigenous qualities that have been eliminated in the past 40 years in the name of modernity.
Arcs have been traditionally employed in the Cyclades to generate enclosure when there was no concrete. Double arched roofs, a 3d geometry that is defined by arcs in various directions, are the only way to make a building when all you have is stones. The interior space feeling of a double arched roof is remarkable, and it is closely interwoven with Cycladic churches are chapels.
